Major venues: Future sites for the PGA Championship
The PGA Championship has traditionally been the last of the four major championships on the golf season calendar. But that will change in 2019, when it moves to the month of May . The move has implications for the Players Championship, which moves to March. The move is a chain reaction related to golf in the Olympics as well as considerations for the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup.
The PGA Championship has been staged on more venues than any of the four majors, and in its early days, went to remote resorts like French Lick and Shawnee Inn that might be deemed to logistically challenging to host a modern major. Future venues for the PGA Championship include recent U.S. Opens.
The move to May no doubt brings southern golf courses into play, including top venues in Florida, Texas and Arizona. For now, here is what we know about confirmed sites for the PGA Championship.
