The Bethpage State Park was established in 1936.

Its black course is the most famous of its five courses but it wasn't until 2002 that Bethpage Black hosted its first PGA Tour event -- the US Open. Tiger Woods won the event that year and Bethpage Black got the Open again in 2009.

In 2009 Lucas Glover won a very strange tournament and in 2012 The Barclays -- one of the four FedEx Cup playoff events -- came back to the course. Nick Watney won that event.

On Tuesday the PGA of America announced that it would take the PGA Championship to Bethpage Black in 2019 -- this will be the 101st edition of this tournament.

The course will also host the 2024 Ryder Cup which will be all kinds of fun. It's kind of strange to think who will be playiing in the 2024 Ryder Cup (not Tiger or Phil, probably Spieth and Fowler) but I'm pretty sure that will be as raucous a Ryder Cup as we've ever seen.

It's good to see two great events to return to such a great course with, um, how shall we say it...such passionate fans.

PGA of America president Ted Bishop told a great story about a conversation he had with Phil Mickelson a while back where Mickelson (and Rickie Fowler who was with him) asked why the Ryder Cup had never been played in New York. Lefty went on to talk about how massive an advantage that would be for the American squad.

Kelly Tilghman tied the loose ends together: 

No matter the captain, I'm ready for both the 2019 PGA Championship and the 2024 Ryder Cup -- both should be classic events.
