Why is the PGA Championship Still a Major?


Recommended Posts

Out of all the majors I take the least amount of interest in the PGA. I couldn't tell you why, it just doesn't get me as excited. The Open and The Masters are my favorite, but sometimes The US open is equal to them depending on the course. 

I did think It was because The PGA was late in the year but even now its changed I dont find myself too bothered that I wont get to watch much of it due to other plans. I haven't even had a bet.

I much prefer watching The Players Championship.

Having said all of that, I wouldn't want to see the four majors changed or added to.

It’s a major because it was when Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods won it. You’re going to have a hard time eliminating it. 

Like it or not majors are a significant yard stick. While not impossible to replace - see the AMs out, Masters that Johnny come lately in it’s tough to monkey with them much.

i agree that the move to May was good for the tournament - bad for me watching it though - stopped watching the Masters when I moved to Florida because I I can play 18 on Sunday afternoon in April - likewise in May.


Very hot in June and July so it’s more likely that I will watch one or both of the Opens when it’s hot out.

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.
