I know we all are having withdrawls because we really don't have many sporting events going on right now. I mean, we do have NASCAR going on and the PGA is set to kick off their first golf tournament since the pandemic started this week.

The PGA's RBC Heritage golf tournament will be held in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina starting on Thursday. It will be weird to watch it this week because there will be no fans at the tournament.

Then, there is this. It was announced that the Nathan's Hot Dog eating contest will be held Fourth of July weekend. Is this really a sport, though?

Well, the contest will be held this year at a private location instead of at its usual location on Coney Island. Also different this year is the fact that there will only be five contestants instead of the usual 15 participants.

It was also announced that the U.S. Open will be held in Queens, New York on August 31 through September 13, 2020.

There will be no spectators for either one of these events. So there you go, a quick run down of what sports are actually being held. Now, let's cross our fingers and hope football will be back.
