Aronimink to host '27 PGA Championship, '20 Women's PGA

Postado Novembro 14, 2017

The Philadelphia area will see two majors coming back their way in the next decade, with the PGA of America set to announce Aronimink Golf Club as host of the 2027 PGA Championship and 2020 KPMG Women's PGA Championship.

The club has been in contact with the PGA and the U.S. Golf Association since the AT&T National, hosted by Tiger Woods, was held at Aronimink in 2010 and 2011.

The idea of holding majors at the club became more practical after Aronimink embarked on an major course upgrade previous year.

Aronimink, which will host the PGA Tour's BMW Championship in the 2018 FedEx Cup playoffs, is mostly through a renovation project which began in October 2016.

Aronimink last hosted a PGA Championship in 1962.

Fall is usually a quiet time on the golf calendar, but the PGA of America has been making plenty of noise this November.

The PGA Championship will celebrate its 100th playing next year at Bellerive Country Club in St. Louis, the final time it will be held in August.

For the third time in a week, the site of an upcoming PGA Championship has been learned.

With the announcement, the PGA Championship will be locked in for 10 of the next 13 years. The championship will move to May, becoming the second major to be played starting in 2019, when it will be competed at Bethpage Black in Farmingdale, N.Y. It was also reported that PGA Championship will return to Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Ky., in 2024.
