THE ROAD AHEAD

pending: Charles Schwab Challenge

May 18-24, 2020, Forth Worth, TX
The tournament was founded 74 years ago in 1946 and honors the history of golf by using an official Scottish tartan plaid jacket for its champions and top committee chairmen. It is the longest running non-major tour event held at the same site. Colonial Country Club was founded in 1936 by Marvin Leonard chiefly out of a desire to introduce Bentgrass greens to the area. The par-70, 7,209-yard course was designed by John Bredemus of Texas and Perry Maxwell of Oklahoma.

pending: Rocket Mortgage Classic

May 25-31, 2020, Detroit, MI
Hosted by the Detroit Golf Club, founded in 1899, their six-hole course turned into nine holes and later eighteen holes. Donald Ross, architect of both the North and South courses, was the highest regarded course designer of the first half of the 20th century. Hailing from Dornoch, Scotland, he spent the long off-season sketching golf holes. At 18, Ross began a two-year summer internship at St. Andrews under the legend himself, Old Tom Morris.

pending: The Memorial Tournament

June 1-7, 2020, Dublin, OH
The Memorial Tournament is a PGA Tour golf tournament founded in 1976 by Jack Nicklaus and played on the Nicklaus-designed course at Muirfield Village Golf Club.
The golf course is situated on 220 acres, which includes an 11-acre driving range. The Par-72, 7,352-yard course was officially dedicated on Memorial Day, May 27, 1974, with an exhibition match between Nicklaus and Tom Weiskopf.
