Olympic Club gets 2028 PGA, 2032 Ryder Cup

The Olympic Club in San Francisco will host the 2028 PGA Championship and the 2032 Ryder Cup on its famed Lake Course, it was first reported by the San Francisco Chronicle.

The PGA of America sent out media invitations for a “special announcement” at the Olympic Club on Wednesday.

According to the story, the Olympic Club was in line to host the 2027 U.S. Open until the United States Golf Association learned of the club’s negotiations with the PGA of America, and instead awarded the 2027 U.S. Open to Pebble Beach.

The PGA Championship will be contested in San Francisco for the first time in 2020 at TPC Harding Park, across the street from the Olympic Club.

The Olympic Club has hosted the U.S. Open five times, most recently in 2012, when Webb Simpson beat Jim Furyk and Graeme McDowell of Northern Ireland by one stroke.

In the other U.S. Opens held at Olympic, little-known club pro Jack Fleck beat Ben Hogan in one the greatest upsets in golf history in 1955, Billy Casper rallied to beat Arnold Palmer in a playoff in 1966, Scott Simpson edged Tom Watson by one stroke in 1987, and Lee Janzen beat Payne Stewart by a stroke in 1998.

Pebble Beach, Harding Park and the Olympic Club are scheduled to host eight professional majors or team match-play events in the next 15 years.
