Is Tiger Woods Playing in the PGA Championship 2019? PGA Championship Field, Tee Times Date, TV Coverage, Latest Odds

It’s almost time for golf’s second major tournament of the year, the PGA Championship. This year’s PGA has a new date, moved from August to May to get the majors closer together. The move couldn’t have happened in a better year since interest in golf is riding high after Tiger Woods’ Master's victory last month.

Will Tiger Woods play in the PGA Championship 2019?

The answer is a resounding yes – Tiger Woods is planning to play in the PGA Championship. The tournament will be broadcast on TNT and CBS. Here’s the daily TV schedule:

First Round, Thursday, May 16
TNT: 1:00 – 7:00 p.m.

Second Round, Friday, May 17
TNT 1:00 – 7:30 p.m.

Third Round, Saturday, May 18

Fourth Round, Sunday, May 19

CBS: 2:00 - 7:00 p.m.

The tournament is being held at Bethpage Black on Long Island, New York. The dates are May 16-19 so it’s just around the corner. In fact, we’ve already had reports that Woods’ yacht has been parked off the coast – a likely sign that he plans to stay there during this year’s tournament.

Woods has not played a single tournament since his stunning victory at the Masters in May – his first major tournament win in more than a decade. He’s the odds-on favorite to win at Bethpage Black in May, however.
