Golf's first major starts Thursday

There won’t be four majors in 2020, and they aren’t wrapping in August with the PGA Championship. Instead, Thursday’s first round from Harding Park in San Francisco marks the beginning of the game’s most prestigious tournaments. The US Open was pushed from Father’s Day to next month, and The Masters is tentatively scheduled for November after being postponed in the spring. While a major championship represents a step up as far as importance and the total purse, fans are still forbidden from being on the course to watch in person.

Harding Park is unique in that it is a municipal-owned course. It’s not unheard of for a public course to host a major, Bethpage Black in New York has done it multiple times, but it isn’t common. Justin Thomas and Brooks Koepka are the current favorites. Bryson DeChambeau, Rory McIlroy, and Jon Rahm are also considered likely contenders.
