The 2021 PGA Championship plans to host a limited number of spectators, the PGA of America announced on Tuesday.

Approximately 10,000 fans per day will be allowed on the grounds at The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Golf Resort for the year's second major, which begins on May 20.

"We’re excited to welcome spectators back to the PGA Championship this May in a way that is responsible and aligned with current South Carolina health protocols," said PGA of America President Jim Richerson. "While we wish we could accommodate the sellout crowds who had purchased tickets, the 2021 PGA Championship will be steeped in gratitude as the best players in the world compete on the historic Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Golf Resort."

In January, Augusta National announced its intention to host patrons, but the venue didn't release further details.

The PGA Tour is slowly opening its gates to fans. Roughly 5,000 fans attended each round of the Phoenix Open in early February. There are plans to continue allowing more fans throughout the Tour's Florida swing in the lead-up to The Players Championship in two weeks.
