And I Have to say this.The people of Rochester, NY are fantastic sports fans! Of all the horse trials we participated in, Stuart, South of Rochester in Victor, NY was by far the most fun. Huge crowds of spectators came out! It was the greatest!
Agree The PGA of America will have some tough decisions to make as this looks like a pretty successful championship however the May date makes this not the ideal location.

There was not one negative comment from anyone about the course and the community support is off the charts. They are hosting the '27 US Amateur and I would be shocked if the PGA Championship wasn't coming back in 10 years.
I do wonder why a hole like 14 isn't seen more often, but perhaps its just too severe for the average joes?
Oak Hill will have whichever top event (PGA or Open) that it wishes. 36 holes, massive amount of property, staff that knows how to run a major event, city that has no other top-tier professional sports, Syracuse and Buffalo within 90 minutes either way.As we know, US Am is usually a precursor to US Open ... guess what? 2031 has not been announced for US Open.
