FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - The PGA Tour is leaving the 8:46 a.m. tee time vacant this week at Colonial. It's part of a tribute to George Floyd and to support efforts to end racial and social injustice. Authorities say 8 minutes, 46 seconds is how long Floyd was pinned to the ground under a white Minneapolis police officer’s knee before the handcuffed black man died. Commissioner Jay Monahan says the tour will have a moment of silence and reflection at 8:46 a.m. in each of the four rounds at the Charles Schwab Challenge.
