The weekend is just a few short hours away. Hope you booked an early tee time tomorrow, because we're about to get into major mode, as the fight for the Wannamaker Trophy kicks into high gear at the 2019 PGA Championship!
Earlier this week, Team Titleist was on site at Bethpage State Park in Farmingdale, NY to bring you all of the sights and sounds from the practice tee, the Titleist Tour van and inside the ropes during practice round action on the famed Black Course.
We hope you enjoy our photos from "The People's Country Club" and that it inspires you to visit this public golf course masterpiece. (Yes, Bethpage is a public facility and one of the few major championship venues that you can experience for yourself!)
Don’t forget to stay tuned to our social media channels throughout the weekend (Twitter, Facebook and Instagram) for even more inside coverage.
FAST FACTS: This marks the first time that The Black Course at Bethpage State Park has hosted the PGA Championship and the first time in 70 years that the PGA has been played in May. The Black Course has previously hosted two majors (2002 and 2009 U.S. Opens) and two FedExCup Playoffs events (The Barclays in 2012 and 2016). When Bethpage Black hosted the U.S. Open in 2002, it was the first time in history that the National Championship had ever been contested on a public golf course.
