Remaining 2013 Major Championship Venues

142 ND Open Championship Muirfield, Scotland

The Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers — as the golf club at Muirfield is properly known — is one of the oldest golf clubs in the world, and the source of the earliest written Rules of Golf, which date back to 1744. The current course in Gullane, East Lothian opened in 1891, and the club moved from its previous home at the links in nearby Musselburgh. Just a year later, in 1892, Muirfield hosted the first of its 15 Open Championships, which was won by Harold Hilton, one of only three amateurs to have lifted the Claret Jug. 95 th PGA Championship Oak Hill Country Club, Rochester, N.Y. Oak Hill Country Club will host its third PGA Championship, in August. Since 1956, the East Course has been the site of all of the rotating U.S. major championships, along with the 1995 Ryder Cup. Oak Hill, designed by legendary architect Donald Ross, features thousands of oaks, maples, evergreens, and elms. Its signature “Hill of Fame” on the par-5 13th hole has honored many of the game’s foremost players and contributors. While the East Course has undergone various facelifts to accommodate the demands of hosting modern major championships, it remains one of the most beautiful and challenging Ross layouts in the game.

In the event of an injury or a dual winner in a major Championship, The PGA of America has developed a formula to complete the PGA Grand Slam of Golf field. The Defending Champion receives the initial invitation, then the Major Champions Points List is used to complete the field. This equation incorporates active past major winners and how they compete in this year’s major events. The point system awards 150 points for a 2nd place finish in a major event, 125 for 3rd, 110 for 4th, 100 for 5th, 90 for 6th, 85 for 7th, all the way thru 70th place, which receives 6 points.
