Baltusrol adds PGA, Women’s PGA majors
The PGA Championship is returning to Baltusrol, and the Women’s PGA is going to the fabled New Jersey course for the first time.
The announcement Saturday – the women will play there in 2023, the men in 2029 – marks the second straight year the PGA of America scheduled majors for men and women at the same course. The PGA Championship (2027) and Women’s PGA (2020) also will be at Aronimink outside Philadelphia over the next decade.
It will be the third PGA Championship at Baltusrol, with Jimmy Walker winning in 2016 and Phil Mickelson winning in 2005. Baltusrol also held the U.S. Open seven times.
European Tour: Marcus Kinhult of Sweden carded a 4-under 67 and maintained his two-shot lead going into the final day of the French Open in Paris. Kinhult shot five birdies in a row just before the turn to get to 10 under, and he kept his advantage with a bogey and a birdie to stay two shots ahead of England’s Chris Wood at Le Golf National, where the Ryder Cup will be staged in September.
Wood recovered from a poor start with two birdies and an eagle before the turn before finishing with a 67. Spaniards Sergio Garcia (64) and Jon Rahm (68) are behind Wood at 7 under and 6 under.
World No. 2 Justin Thomas and fellow American Julian Suri are at 4 under after each shot a 69.
