MAY 13 - 19, 2019
The PGA Championship is one of the four major tournaments of the PGA season. Usually held in August, the PGA Championship has been a part of the professional golf circuit since 1916. For the first time, the tournament will be held in May, moving it from the third to the second major of the year. The tournament rotates between venues in the United States. In 2018, the PGA Championship celebrated 100 years at Bellerive Country Club in St. Louis Missouri. In 2019, the 101st PGA Championship will take place on Long Island, New York at Bethpage State Park’s famous Black Course. The course is one of the top 5 toughest courses in America, according to Golf Digest, and is also one of the featured courses in the EA Sports video games Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10-12. The golfer who can best navigate the challenging Black Course at the 2019 championship and outlast 155 other players will win a piece of $10 million purse and of course, the Wanamaker Trophy.

ABOUT PGA CHAMPIONSHIP:
Golf fans attending the 2019 PGA Championship will not only get four great days of competitive play, but they will get to experience Farmingdale, New York and the town of Oyster Bay in Nassau County. The town is rich with history, including the former residence of Theodore Roosevelt that is now a museum, known as Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park.
Before the tournament begins on the 16th, visitors can see the PGA Championship practice rounds on May 13th through 15th. While many fans love to watch the four match days, the three practice rounds offer golf lovers the chance to get up close to PGA pros. Fewer people means fans won't have to fight with the crowds to see the best tee off. Practice rounds are also great for chances to get autographs or selfies with the players.
The PGA Championship is the third oldest major and as is tradition, the golfers will compete for the Wanamaker Trophy. The trophy is named after the brains behind the tournament, department store owner, Rodman Wanamaker. His idea for the championship was to see which professional player was the best of the best. While the Masters has the smallest field (with no more than 87 players), and the US Open is a combined amateur-professional golf tournament, the PGA Championship is solely for PGA pros. The original tournament format saw golfers participate in match play. However, in 1958 the tournament became the more common stroke play, which continues to this day.
Visitors to the 2019 PGA Championship will see the start of a new era, as the tournament is played in May for the first time. It will be a great week of PGA play, and fans can experience one of the world's top golf events and the great Long Island all at the same time.
Why attend the 2018 PGA Championship? This year’s four-day competition provides a number of reasons including its 100-year celebration, its final tournament held in August, and the No. 1 golfer in the world, Justin Thomas returning to defend his title.
