Pga Tour, next stop Los Angeles Country Club


After the second Major of the year with the victory of Brooks Koepka, who put his third Wanamaker Trophy on the bulletin board, attention now turns to the next appointment, the one scheduled for June 15th to 18th at the Los Angeles Country Club.

Los Angeles Country Club, schedule

Koepka’s victory was the first for a LIV Golf player (but still a member of the PGA of America, let’s not forget, NDR) in a Major, an event that sooner or later would have occurred, given the value of the players present on the Saudi League.

Many of them, however, had to resort to qualifications to get to the 1st tee at the Los Angeles Country Club.

The reasons are different.

The leader of the qualifiers is Sergio Garcia.

He was not on the field at Oak Hill, the first Major he hasn’t played since 1999, due to his vertical collapse in the World Ranking (he fell beyond the 200th position) and the end of the exemptions linked to his victory at the 2017 Masters.

Two other colleagues of Garcia took to the field in yesterday’s qualifying.

One is Graeme McDowell, winner of the U.S. Open in 2010, who lost his 10-year exemption, and therefore he too was in the field at the final qualifying leg at the Northwood Club and Bent Tree Country Club in Dallas.

The second is the South African Branden Grace.

Overall, there are 25 LIV Golf players who will take the field in the final qualifiers of the U.S:Open, whose second round will take place on June 5th.

The Los Angeles Country Club is a country club in the United States. The club was founded in 1897 and is located in Los Angeles, California. The club has two 18-hole golf courses with a par of 70.

The two golf courses have their own names, the “North” course and the “South” course, and both were founded in 1897. The “North” course was designed by golf course architects Gil Hanse and George C. Thomas Jr. and has a higher difficulty than the “South” course designed by Herbert Fowler.

For the golf tournament, the club always uses the “North” course and the length of the men’s course is 6410 m with a par of 70. The course rating is 74.6 and the slope rating is 139.
