Sources: S.F.'s TPC Harding Park To Host '20 PGA Championship, '25 Presidents Cup

GO WEST: GOLF DIGEST's Geoff Shackelford noted the PGA Championship would be on the West Coast "for the first time" since '88 at Sahalee Country Club outside of Seattle. By giving Harding Park its '20 date, the "prospect of an international PGA Championship is highly unlikely" until at least '24, "assuming that golf remains in the Olympic Games." Wednesday’s announcement will "give the PGA of America back-to-back public-course venues (with Bethpage Black scheduled to host the 2019 PGA) after many years of avoiding municipal or state-owned courses" (GOLFDIGEST.com, 6/26). In S.F., Ron Kroichick writes the '20 PGA Championship "could move to the spring." Wednesday’s news conference also "might address other elements of Harding’s future." The PGA Tour’s "contract with the city" calls for a FedExCup Playoff event there in '16, and "rumors also persist about next year’s Match Play Championship" (S.F. CHRONICLE, 6/27).
