Golf Tournaments to Watch

. October 22, 2017

Golf tournaments are a neat means to produce money and get people together, so conjuring up money for an organization is probably the most common cause that people plan golf tournaments. Besides that, golf is also played professionally. On that point are at least twenty golf tours, each lead by a PGA or an independent tour organization, which is responsible for arranging events, getting sponsors, and ordering the tour. The men’s major golf championships, commonly known as the Major Championships, and often referred to simply as the majors, are the four most prestigious annual tournaments in professional golf.

Masters Tournament

The Masters Tournament is one of the four major championships in professional golf. Scheduled for the first full week of April, the Masters is the first major of the year, and unlike the others, it is held at the same location, Augusta National Golf Club in the south-eastern United States, in city of Augusta, Georgia. The Masters is strictly an invitation Tournament. The qualification regulations are the principal means of determining the player invitation list. The player field being small, many Tournament formalities and regulations are eliminated. Of all the traditions at the Masters, none is more endearing than the annual Par 3 Contest. This beloved event, held on Wednesday of Tournament week and now televised around the world, is above all a family affair.

U.S. Open

The United States Open Championship, commonly known as the U.S. Open, is the annual open national championship of golf in the United States. It is the second of the four major championships in golf, and is on the official schedule of both the PGA Tour and the European Tour. It is presented by the United States Golf Association (USGA) in mid-June. The U.S. Open is staged at a variety of courses, set up in such a way that scoring is very difficult, with a premium placed on accurate driving.

The Open Champion

The Open Championship is the oldest of the four major championships in professional golf. Held in the United Kingdom, it is administered by The R&A and is the only major outside the United States. The Open is currently the third major of the year, between the U.S. Open and the PGA Championship, and is played in mid-July. The Open has a remarkable legacy of inspiring Champions. For more than 150 years, the world’s finest golfers have set out to become the “Champion Golfer of the Year” and lift the iconic Claret Jug.

PGA Championship

The PGA Championship is an annual golf tournament conducted by the Professional Golfers’ Association of America. It is the golf season’s final major, played in mid-August on the third weekend prior to Labour weekend. It is an official money event on the PGA TourEuropean Tour, and Japan Golf Tour, with a purse of $10 million since the 97th edition in 2015. In line with the other majors, winning “the PGA” gains privileges that improve career security.

Golf is truly not that boring. As compared to other sports, it is reasonably easy to read and is now no more a slice of amusement for old people alone.
