A decision rumored for weeks became official Tuesday: the 2019 PGA Championship and 2024 Ryder Cup are headed to Bethpage Black.
One of five courses at Bethpage State Park in Farmingdale, N.Y., the Black Course became the first public venue to host the U.S. Open when it did so in 2002, with Tiger Woods claiming the trophy for the second time in his career. The season’s second major also returned to Bethpage in 2009, when Lucas Glover took home his maiden major title amid soggy conditions. Reigning British Open champion Phil Mickelson finished runner-up on both occasions.
This 1st hole @ Bethpage Yellow will be transformed as the driving range and additional putting green when PGA is in town, which is pretty frequently with the official announcement that Bethpage Black will be the site of 2019 PGA Championship and 2024 Ryder Cup Matches.
