Valhalla Golf Club will once again stage another big golf event, with the PGA Championship reportedly returning in 2024, according to Tim Sullivan of the Louisville Courier Journal.

The Kentucky layout held the PGA Championship in 1996, 2000, and 2014, with Mark Brooks, Tiger Woods, and Rory McIlroy all lifting the Wanamaker Trophy. The club also hosted the 2008 Ryder Cup matches, when the U.S. defeated Europe 16.5-11.5.

"I think that's a great thing for Valhalla, a great thing for the city of Louisville, but even a greater thing for the PGA of America to be able to bring it back to a course they own," said former president of the PGA of America Ted Bishop.

The PGA of America announced in the summer that beginning in 2019, the tournament will move from August to May, becoming the second major on the schedule.

"Can't put into words how much this excited me to hear," Justin Thomas, a Louisville native, wrote via his Twitter account. "The PGA Championship is coming to the 502 again!!"
