M ayor London Breed and PGA Chief Championships Officer Kerry Haigh were among those celebrating the arrival and future of the PGA in the City by the Bay in late March. In 2020, TPC Harding Park will host the 102nd PGA Championship. But that's where thing start. Also coming is the 2025 Presidents Cup (TPC Harding Park), the 2028 PGA Championship (Olympic Club) and the 2032 Ryder Cup (Olympic Club). Next year's PGA Championship will mark the first time the PGA has had its championship in Northern California since 1977 (Pebble Beach Golf Links) and the first PGA Championship on the West Coast since 1998 at Sahalee Country Club, just outside of Seattle. During the festivities, Breed acknowledged late Mayor Ed Lee, who was instrumental in making it all happen. "We lost a true champion when we lost Mayor Ed Lee, who really fought to bring this PGA Championship to San Francisco," Breed said. "I know that he thought he was going to be the next Jack Nicklaus because he loved to play golf." PGA OF AMERICA XXXXX XXXX NORTHERN CALIFORNIA MAJORS
