There are various professional golf tournaments throughout the year, but none are held to a higher standard than the majors. The Masters, PGA Championship, U.S. Open, and The Open Championship trophies are the most coveted awards in golf. These golf majors attract the best players around the world to compete on the most beautiful courses in the world. Here’s our guide to the men’s golf majors.

Masters Tournament

The Masters are the first men’s golf major on the calendar every year. The major always takes place at the Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia during the first week of April and only invites the best golfers in the world to participate. The tournament began in 1934, and winners receive the iconic green jacket handed out every year by golf legends. Tiger Woods recently completed his career comeback by winning this year’s tournament.

PGA Championship

The PGA Championship was held in August for 70 years, but that recently changed and will now follow the Masters in May. A different golf course hosts this major each year—the 2019 PGA Championship will take place at one of the toughest in the U.S., Bethpage Black in Long Island, New York.

U.S. Open

Like the PGA Championship, the U.S. Open also changes venues every year. The United States Golf Association hosts this June major and allows professionals from around the world to compete. With a history dating back 124 years, this is the oldest golf major to take place in the U.S. Pebble Beach will play host to this year’s championship.

The Open Championship

The Open Championship, popularly known as the British Open, is the oldest of the four golf major championships, and it’s the only one to take place overseas. Taking place in July, the British Open is the last major tournament on the schedule. The Open’s location varies, but it’s always held in the United Kingdom. Northern Ireland will play host to the 2019 edition at Royal Portrush Golf Club.
