In 2019 the PGA Championship tournament is going to happen in May, and not August like usual. The move is coming thanks to really low ratings in the golf world this time of year. Not hard to believe as you have the NFL gearing up, world soccer qualifiers, and even the Olympics every other year. And baseball postseason edging closer. To name a few.
So this should really help the grand slam of golf get the spotlight it deserves. Really makes more sense for golf in general to make this move. More focus can be on the summer being all about golf, than the sort of awkward schedule it has going now, that spreads across seasons and bleeds into other major sport's scheduling.
