In 2019, the PGA Championship was moved up from August to May.
In 2020, the PGA will slide back on the calendar but not because of another schedule overhaul. Rather, the global coronavirus pandemic has forced changes across the board for golf tournaments.
On April 6, the PGA Championship was tentatively rescheduled for Aug. 6-9, while staying at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco. PGA of America CEO Seth Waugh indicated on April 14 that every effort will be made to stick to those dates, even if it means no fans on the grounds.
There are PGA Championships scheduled out to 2031, although venues for 2025, 2026 and 2030 are still to be determined.

Tagmarshal has tracked over 10 million rounds of golf. Real-time data collected by the system using small “tags” clipped onto golf bags, installed in buggies or offered on handheld or cart-installed proprietary 2Way screen devices, transmits information to on-course staff or personnel in the pro shop identifying groups that are out of position before issues arise. Player assistants can then support in a proactive, objective, non-confrontational manner resulting in improved player experience, consistent round times and player time freed up to enjoy on-site food and beverage items as well as opportunities for additional tee sheet capacity.
More than 25 of the top 100 US courses partner with Tagmarshal including over 250 leading courses globally.
