PGA Championship 2020

May 14 - 17, 2020

The PGA Championship is now the second major golfing championship held annually in May, on the weekend leading up to Memorial Day, having been moved up from its previous mid-August position from 2019 on.  Chronologically on the major golf championships calendar, the PGA Championship – often called the US PGA – follows on from The US Masters in March.

Running at various golf courses around America, the PGA Championship offers an $11 million prize fund and is it is known for its exclusivity as the field features an almost completing pro-player line-up. It is the only one of the four golf majors not to definitively allow the Top 50 players in the Official World Golf Rankings into the field. That said, the Top 100 players are usually invited if not already qualified.

Established in 1916, the PGA Championships traditionally runs in the eastern half of the US with the west of the country only hosting 10 previous editions of the time-honoured tournament.
