Russell Knox has told BBC Golf that playing a competitive round of golf without fans will be something he has never done before in his professional career. 

The PGA Tour, which has been suspended since March 12 due to the coronavirus pandemic, confirmed last week that it plans to resume its schedule at the Charles Schwab Challenge on June 11. 

"It is going to be strange with no fans," said Knox, a two-time PGA Tour winner.

"I don't think I have played a round where there have been no fans.

"There are probably going to be a few strange waves to the non-crowd after you make a putt, it might be kind of funny to watch."

The Scot does question how a number of European and International players are going to get on in terms of travelling to PGA Tour events, especially when the schedule resumes again over the summer. 

"It would be unfair to start if some people were not able to play because of restrictions," said Knox, currently ranked 123rd in the world. 

"If you have the ability to play you should be able to play, and if for whatever reason there is a restriction I just don't think that we could possibly start."

As for a possible 2020 Ryder Cup being staged at Whistling Straits in September without golf fans, Knox - who narrowly missed out on a wildcard pick in the European team back in 2016 - does not believe the biennial match should go ahead. 

"I personally don't think they should have a Ryder Cup without fans, the Ryder Cup is the fans," he said.

"Without them it would just be a kind of strange match playing with your buddies.

"If they do manage to go ahead with it somehow, which seems kind of far-fetched to be honest, I don't think they should play if fans aren't allowed."
