Golf Monthly answers the question, where is the USPGA Championship in 2019, plus we look ahead to the venues scheduled for 2020 and beyond
Where is the USPGA Championship in 2019?
For 2019 the USPGA Championship heads to Bethpage State Park for the first time, with the famous Bethpage Black course near New York having previously hosted the US Open in 2002 (won by Tiger Woods) and in 2009 (won by Lucas Glover).
The 2019 event will be the first of two big tournaments for the club, which also hosts the 2024 Ryder Cup.
It will be the first USPGA Championship to be hosted in the new calendar spot of May, meaning it will be the year's second major championship after the Masters.
The Black course measures at roughly 7,456 yards and tests every aspect of a golfers game. Designed by A.W. Tillinghurst in the 1930's the course has only become a regular feature on the PGA Tour in the past 20 years. Beforehand it was scruffy and needed a lot of work doing to it in terms of the bunkers and overall design of the course.
In 2002 it hosted its first Major tournament, the US Open, which was won by Tiger Woods. Seven years later Lucas Glover would do the same.
It has also hosted the 2012 and 2016 Barclays Championship won by Nick Watney and Patrick Reed respectively.
What about 2020?
TPC Harding Park, San Francisco
The 2020 USPGA Championship will be hosted at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco for the first time. It will also be the first time since 1998 at Sahalee in Washington that the USPGA Championship takes place in Western USA. Harding Park most recently hosted a PGA Tour event at the WGC-Cadillac Match Play, which was won by Rory McIlroy.
Kiawah Island, South Carolina
The tournament returns to Kiawah Island's Ocean Course in 2021, site of Rory McIlroy's eight stroke victory in 2012 when he won his first USPGA Championship. It also hosted the 1991 Ryder Cup, which is famous for Bernhard Langer's missed putt to hand USA the trophy.

Oak Hill's East Course plays host to its fourth USPGA Championship in 2023. It last hosted in 2013 when Jason Dufner won. It has been the venue for the 1995 Ryder Cup, two US Amateurs and three US Opens.
Valhalla Golf Club, Kentucky
Valhalla once again returns to the Major rotation hosting the 2024 PGA Championship. The last time it hosted the tournament was 2014 when Rory McIlroy won by one stroke over Phil Mickelson.

A golfer for most of his life, Sam started playing the game to prove he was the best player out of his father and two brothers.
He quickly became a golf equipment expert and has always been the one family and friends come to for buying advice, and spends a lot of his time putting golf gear, apparel and shoes to the test.
He is a graduate of Swansea University where he studied History and American Studies, and he has been a part of the Golf Monthly team since February 2018. He also previously worked for World Soccer and Rugby World magazines.
