It’s Back! WGC Match Play To Harding Park In 2015

Ron Kroichick says Wednesday's announcement of the 2020 PGA Championship to Harding Park will also include a surprise: the 2015 WGC Match Play, filling an open May date on the schedule.

He writes:

Wednesday’s news conference at City Hall will include this Match Play announcement, a source close to the PGA Tour said Monday. The tournament, held the past eight years at Dove Mountain outside Tucson, Ariz., is expected to move from February to May, improving the chances of dry conditions at Harding.

The tour’s commitment to hold Match Play in San Francisco covers only one year, but Rec & Park General Manager Phil Ginsburg said, “The idea here is that Match Play has the potential to be a recurring event.”

This certainly leaves open the question of sponsor and format, but it sounds like the tour is going to forge ahead in trying to save this event, even if it means filling in those blanks later and for that, fans of match play golf will be grateful.

One can only hope this provides the opportunity for the early season to shift, allowing The Players to move back to the much more interesting (and better attended) March date.

Better attended March date? hmm i've gone every year for the last 12 years or so and i guess I must have missed something lol!

Players in May is way better - it stands alone, instead of a Masters Warm up. And having a big event in May is very nice, it was a long 2 month wait from the Masters to the US Open.
