Joe Cullen believes that some of the major tournaments may need to be scrapped after the Coronavirus break due to the amount that is going to be likely rescheduled.

Cullen spoke to the Yorkshire Post also about certain players struggling further down the rankings due to the lack of tournaments; with measures now being brought out by the PDPA to help those adversely effected.

“It’s the same as any other job, if you can’t work you don’t get paid,” said Cullen.

“It is as simple as that. I am pretty lucky because I am in the top-16 in the world and the money’s pretty good there.

“We’ve got a bit set aside so we will manage, but plenty of the other boys further down the rankings are struggling.”

“By the time we get back playing, at a guess I’d say about August/September time, there’s so much to fit in.

“There’s the Matchplay, Pro Tours, something like six European Tours between now and then – and that’s without the Premier League – so I think come September, October, November there will be a lot of pro’ tours moved midweek, maybe, just to get the season done. But as far as the big tournaments go, I just can’t see how they are going to fit them all in.”
