The 2020 PGA Championship is set to take place at the TPC Harding Park in San Francisco, California, USA between 3-9 August.
This will be the 102nd edition of the PGA Championship, and the first of golf's three major championships played in 2020.
It was originally scheduled for May 14-17, but due to the coronavirus pandemic, it will be the first major played in over a year, and will have no spectators in attendance.

Koepka is looking to win the PGA Championship for the third year in a row and in 2018, he held off a Sunday charge from Tiger Woods to capture his first PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club. 
The following year, Koepka successfully defended his title at Bethpage Black, where he took a commanding seven-stroke lead into the final round.

Sir Walter Hagen holds the record as the only player to win the PGA Championship not just three but four consecutive times.
The American legend won between 1924 and 1927, in addition to his first PGA Championship victory in 1921 and his record stands today.
Koepka has admitted that he has struggled with consistency ahead of this year's tournament having had an issue with his knee in recent times.
“I’m hitting it well, I like where it’s at," Koepka said on the Golf Channel. 
"I think there’s still a little bit of room for improvement just for comfort as far as the changes we made are only five, six days old now." 

The 2020 PGA Championship offers an $11 million purse with a winner's share of $1.98 million.
