The KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship, the most historic and prestigious major championship in senior golf, will celebrate its 81st competition in 2020. The Championship was born in 1937 on the grounds of another of golf’s majors, at the invitation of one of the game’s greatest players. At the suggestion of renowned amateur Bobby Jones, the inaugural Senior PGA Championship was played at Augusta National Golf Club three years after the first Masters Tournament was held there.
This Championship was established to provide the opportunity for PGA Members ages 50 and over to compete with their peers and brings together the legends of the game and the newest members of senior professional golf for seventy-two holes of stroke play. This 2017 Championship will mark the first time that the most historic and prestigious championship in senior golf will be conducted in the National Capital area.
