But what about predicting PGA Championship venues through 2025 and beyond? Unlike with the U.S. Open, the PGA Championship is a little bit more predictable, so here's a look at some likely future candidates, even as the PGA Championship moves to May.
Medinah No. 3: The PGA of America has at the Chicago area club in one way or another every six of seven years since 1999. The PGA came back in 2006 (Tiger won both the '99 and '06 PGA), and then just held the Ryder Cup there last fall. With Bethpage Black set to get the PGA in 2019, 2021 a good year to bring back the PGA.
Hazeltine National: The Ryder Cup will be staged here in 2016, a full seven years after Y.E. Yang took out Tiger Woods there in the '09 PGA, which was seven years after Rich Beem took out Tiger Woods at the '02 PGA. Add seven years to 2016, and you get 2023. Plug it in.
Whistling Straits: The PGA of America has said it would like to come to the Wisconsin course every five years. That would put it at 2020, but the Straits is hosting the Ryder Cup that year, so 2025 makes sense.
