REUTERS: The Masters, which brings together the world's best golfers in one of the sport's four majors, will be held without spectators in November because of the COVID-19 outbreak, Augusta National Golf Club said on Wednesday.

Augusta National Chairman Fred Ridley said in a statement the potential risks of welcoming spectators for the Nov. 12-15 tournament were too significant to overcome.
