As a passionate golfer, I know how important it is to stay up-to-date on the biggest tournaments of the year. Whether you’re an avid competitor or are just looking to soak in some of the world’s most competitive golf scenes, hopping aboard and following these annual events will get you closer than ever before to lofty heights of glory. This post looks at several important golf tournaments that will be taking place in 2023 and discuss why they should be considered must sees for aspiring players and dedicated followers alike and what the live golf results (or as we Germans say, Live Golf Ergebnisse) might look like.
Four major tournaments will thrill golf fans in the coming year
In golf, there are a total of four so-called majors that are particularly in the focus of friends of golf. Of course, these four major tournaments will be held again next year. As usual, three majors will initially be held in the USA, and the British Open Championship will once again be a major tournament in Europe.
US Masters in Augusta
At the top of the list is The Masters at Augusta National Golf Club. This prestigious event has been around since 1934 and continues to draw some of the best players in the world. From Tiger Woods’ historic victory in 2019 to Phil Mickelson’s emotional triumph two years later, this tournament has seen more great moments than any other golf tournament. Its unique atmosphere and the legendary course it’s played on make this a must-see event for any golf fan.
Next year, the first of a total of four majors will once again be held in April. The world’s golfing elite will meet from April 6 to April 9 for the 89th edition of the Augusta Masters.
This important tournament is held on the grounds of the Augusta National Golf Club in the American state of Georgia. Here, among other things, the participants compete for prize money of around two million US dollars for the winner of this legendary golf tournament alone. Scottie Scheffler, who won the US Masters in Augusta this year with his golf equipment and was able to leave Rory McIlroy, among others, behind, will certainly arrive with a lot of anticipation this time.
The second major in 2023 will be held as usual on the grounds of Oak Hill Country Club in the northeastern U.S. suburb of Rochester from May 15 to May 21. In the coming year, golf fans will again be closely following the action at the golf club, which was founded in 1901. Justin Thomas is sure to be one of the top favorites to win the PGA Championship again in 2023. The US American won the PGA Championship in 2022 and thus achieved the second tournament victory at a major in his career.
U.S. Open Championship 2023
The next major will be held next year in June 2023. This 3rd Major will also be the last tournament of this series on American soil. For the first time in 75 years, the U.S. Open will be held at the Los Angeles Country Club from June 15 to June 18. For this reason, not only the winner of the 2022 U.S Open Championship will have to adjust to a different venue at this tournament. This year, after all, the U.S Open was still held on the golf course at The Country Club in Brookline. There, English golfer Matt Fitzpatrick prevailed, finishing one stroke better than Will Zalatoris and Scottie Scheffler, who tied for 2nd place.
British Open Championship
In 2023, the last Major will again be played on European soil. Traditionally, the Open Championship (GB) is the last Major tournament of the year. In 2023, the British Open Championship will be held on the grounds of the Royal Liverpool Golf Club.
This tournament, which is played on alternating golf courses, is the oldest golf tournament that is still being played. In 2022, the Open Championship (GB) was still held in St. Andrews, Scotland, and there the Australian golfer Cameron Smith won through ahead of the US American Cameron Young and the Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy. Cameron Smith thus won the first major title in his golfing career.
