According to the San Francisco Chronicle the Match Play Championship will take its talents to San Francisco in 2015.

The tournament was formerly played at Dove Mountain in Arizona but the contract there ran out in 2014. The report also says it will be moved from February to May:

"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."

That's pretty interesting -- especially the month change. We'll now have the Players and Match Play pretty close together apparently.

Harding Park will also host the 2020 PGA Championship and is where the GOAT club twirl from Tiger Woods happened at the 2009 Presidents Cup.
