FARMINGDALE, N.Y. (AP) -- The Ryder Cup is coming to Bethpage Black.
The PGA of America announced Tuesday that Bethpage Black will host the rowdiest event in golf in 2024. The public course on Long Island with a reputation of loud and boisterous fans also will get the 2019 PGA Championship.
Bethpage Black first held a big tournament at the 2002 U.S. Open won by Tiger Woods. It held another U.S. Open in 2009, and The Barclays in 2012 as part of the FedEx Cup playoffs.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo was at Bethpage to join PGA of America officials for the announcement. He says New York looks forward to having spectators and television viewers worldwide experience the best golf in the state.
Woods will be 48 when the Ryder Cup is held at Bethpage Black.
