With uncertainty surrounding next month’s return of competitive golf on the PGA Tour, here’s some fun news: The PGA Championship is heading to Oklahoma.
In a decade.
On Tuesday afternoon the PGA of America announced that in 2030, for a record fifth time, Tulsa’s Southern Hills Country Club will host the PGA Championship. In addition to four PGA’s (1970, 1982, 1994, 2007), Southern Hills hosted the U.S. Open in 1958, 1977 and 2001.
The 2020 PGA Championship was scheduled to be held this week at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco before the coronavirus pandemic. Brooks Koepka now must wait for a chance to three-peat until the event is played Aug. 6-9.
In 2017, Southern Hills was awarded a future PGA Championship, but at that time, the date wasn’t announced.
The 2021 KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship will also be held at Southern Hills, May 25-30.
