When is the 2017 USPGA Championship?

The PGA Championship, or 'USPGA Championship' as it is known outside of the USA,  is the final of golf's four majors and takes place in mid-August, around a month after The Open Championship.

The 2017 USPGA Championship will take place from Thursday August 7 - Sunday August 13 2017.

Where is the 2017 USPGA Championship being played?

Like The Open and the US Open, the USPGA Championship takes place in a different venue each season, most often on the East Coast of America. There is a PGA approved roster of eligible courses and a vote is taken to decide on which course will host the tournament. The 2017 USPGA Championship will take place at Quail Hollow Golf Club, which has never previously hosted a major but hosts the PGA Tour's Wells Fargo Championship every season.

US PGA Championship 2017 Field


Like the US Masters there is a strict entry criteria for the USPGA Championship, which ensures only the top golfers in the winners receive an invitation every year. There is no open qualification although the tournament organisers can offer 'wild card' entries. These will almost always be extended to the top 100 in the Official World Golf Rankings who have not met any of the qualification criteria.

Since 2010 the entry criteria is as follows:

  • All former PGA Champions.
  • Winners of the last five U.S. Opens.
  • Winners of the last five Masters.
  • Winners of the last five Open Championships.
  • The last Senior PGA Champion.
  • The low 15 scorers and ties in the previous PGA Championship.
  • The 20 low scorers in the last PGA Professional National Championship.
  • The 70 leaders in official money standings on the PGA Tour (starting one week prior to the previous year's PGA Championship and ending two weeks prior to the current year's PGA Championship).
  • Members of the most recent United States and European Ryder Cup Teams, provided they are in the top 100 of the Official World Golf Ranking as of one week before the start of the tournament.
  • Winners of tournaments co-sponsored or approved by the PGA Tour since the previous PGA Championship (does not include pro-am and team competitions, but does include alternate events).
  • The PGA of America reserves the right to invite additional players not included in the categories listed above.
  • The total field is a maximum of 156 players. Vacancies are filled by the first available player from the list of alternates (those below 70th place in official money standings).
