Women’s golf is the third sport to resume in South Korea. Both baseball and soccer have started playing games. KBO games are being broadcast on ESPN for anyone who needs a baseball fix.

South Korea relaxed restrictions after it reported coronavirus numbers were down, but the country fears another flare up after a man tested positive for coronavirus after visiting multiple nightclubs.
