FORT WORTH, Texas — A quiet return to the PGA Tour came to a standstill at 8:46 a.m. at Colonial.
The PGA Tour marked its return to golf with a moment of silence as a tribute to George Floyd.
The time has become symbolic. Authorities say a white police officer pressed his knee into the back of Floyd's neck for 8 minutes, 46 seconds. The handcuffed black man died after pleading for air.
The tour listed 8:46 a.m. as a starting time with no player names on the tee sheet. Commissioner Jay Monahan stood on the first tee and spoke about hopes of ending racial injustice.
