SAN FRANCISCO (CBS/AP) – After going more 40 years without being played on a public course, the PGA Championship is headed to two in a row.

Multiple reports indicate Thursday that Harding Park in San Francisco has been selected to host the PGA Championship in 2020. The 2019 event will be played at Bethpage Black, a public course on Long Island.

The 2020 event at Harding Park would give California majors in three consecutive years, with the U.S. Open going to Pebble Beach in 2019 and Torrey Pines in 2021.

The last PGA Championship on an affordable public course was in 1974 at Tanglewood Golf Course in North Carolina.

Golf.com, golfdigest.com, the San Francisco Chronicle and Golfweek reported the developments. Golfweek also reported Harding Park would get the Presidents Cup in 2025. It was played at Harding Park in 2007.

The PGA Championship has not been played on the West Coast since 1998 at Sahalee outside Seattle.
