If you’re a golf aficionado, you can’t miss the majors or professional golf tournaments where the most important and select golf in the world gather every year. These major championships are held every year on a specific date so that all major players have the opportunity to meet in all of them if they so wish.
As a curiosity to comment that to date, the only one who has managed to win the four professional golf tournaments within the same year, specifically in 1930, was Bobby Jones, a golfer who himself did not consider himself a professional player, as he played for pleasure, not for work.
The four professional golf tournaments:
- Master of Augusta
Every second Sunday of the month of April is celebrated in the club of golf Agusta National, this championship 18-hole and 72 strokes to perform in four days. It is the first to take place each year, and the winner of it gets the “”green jacket”” with bonus, with which he will identify himself as a member of the club.
Unlike other professional golf tournaments, it has a fixed venue, The Augusta private golf club in Georgia. One of the precursors of this tournament was the Bobby mentioned above Jones.
- United States Open
Another professional golf tournament is this open that is played on the weekend of the third Sunday of June. It can be played on any of the golf courses in the United States and is organized by the Association of this sport in the country. In this tournament you can play both amateurs and professionals, being the only requirement that you have an updated handicap of 1.4.
- British Open
In any golf course located in the coastal area of the United Kingdom, this tournament can take place, specifically during the third weekend of July. It has been held since 1860, being, therefore, the oldest of all professional golf tournaments in the world.
- PGA Championship
The fourth weekend after the end of the British Open, that is, already in the month of August, is held this last major’s tournament, another of the best professional golf tournaments in the world that can be played in any of the numerous golf courses of the United States. And whose organization is run by the PGA, that is, the American primary circuit of professional male golf?
The PGA Championship will also undergo a significant change of date, which will pass from this year to the second largest of the season. It will be played at Bethpage State Park BK Course in New York from May 16. Just a month before the US Open returns to Pebble Beach Golf Links in California, starting June 13.
