Course information

Bethpage Black is among the most notorious golf courses in the United States, made famous by a sign on the first tee which reads: 'WARNING: The black course in extremely difficult course which we recommend only for highly skilled golfers.'

Designed by the brilliant A. W. Tillinghast, whose other works include Baltusrol, Medinah and Winged Foot, it opened in 1936 but only began hosting top-level tournaments in 2002, when Tiger Woods won the US Open.

As well as hosting this year's PGA Championship, Bethpage will be the stage for the 2024 Ryder Cup.

For the 2019 PGA Championship, it will play to 7,436 yards and a par of 70. It played to a par of 71 in The Barclays three years ago, but the seventh - then a par-five - will serve as a long par-four.

Past winners at Bethpage: Tiger Woods (2002 US Open, -3); Lucas Glover (2009 US Open, -4); Nick Watney (2012 The Barclays, -10); Patrick Reed (2016 The Barclays, -9)

We will have outright, specials and round-by-round betting tips throughout the tournament. All will be posted here, beginning with the outright preview on Monday.
