We have officially hit what some would consider the “silly season” portion of the golf schedule. In the remaining weeks of 2023, we will see 20 men compete in the Bahamas at The Hero World Challenge, a PGA and LPGA mixed event making its debut called the Grant Thornton Invitational, and the PNC Championship, which is a team event made up of family duos.
With all of the serious golf done for the 2023 season, and coupling it with the fact that we are less than 150 days away from the first major of 2024 at The Masters, now feels like a great time to make some “way-too-early” major championship predictions for the upcoming 2024 golf season.
Before I make my predictions, here’s a brief look at the 2024 Major Championship venues:
The Masters – Augusta National Golf Club – This one needs no explaining. Augusta National Golf Club hosts The Masters every year in April and it is typically the most anticipated major of the golf season.
PGA Championship – Valhalla Golf Club – Valhalla will be hosting its first PGA Championship since 2014. This will be the fourth time in its history that golfers will compete for the Wanamaker Trophy at Valhalla.
U.S. Open – Pinehurst No. 2 – Much like Valhalla, Pinehurst No. 2 will be hosting their first major championship since 2014 when they hosted the U.S. Open. This will be the fourth time it has hosted the mens U.S. Open.
The Open Championship – Royal Troon Golf Club – This will be the first time Royal Troon has hosted The Open since 2016. It’ll be the 10th time overall that Troon hosts for a chance to win the Claret Jug.
