SURREY, England (AP) The BMW International Open in Germany and the Open de France golf tournaments were canceled on Friday because of the coronavirus pandemic, and the Scottish Open was postponed.

Both the BMW International Open, which was to be played in Munich from June 25-28, and the Open de France, which was scheduled to take place a week later, fell victim to bans on major events in their countries.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has announced a ban through Aug. 31, and the French government has canceled all large public gatherings until mid-July.
