The Biggest Golf Events of 2022
If you’re like me, you’ll already be looking forward to watching the top professionals compete against each other in the biggest golf events of 2022.
Men’s Golf Majors in 2022
The men’s majors kick off with the Masters (April 4-10) at the iconic Augusta National Club in Georgia. Hideki Matsuyama became the first Japanese major winner in 2021, and he’ll be hoping to defend his title.
Phil Mickelson became the oldest major winner in 2021, and Phil the Thrill is sure to give us more exciting times at this year’s US PGA Championship at the Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa (16-22 May)?
John Rahm won his first major in 2021, and the Spaniard will be a popular choice to add more big wins to his C.V. in 2022. He’ll defend his US Open title at The Country Club in Brookline.
Collin Morikawa will return to England for the defence of his Open Championship crown (10-17 July). The best players in the world will all have this event in their crosshairs, as the 150th edition of the world’s most prestigious golf tournament takes place at the home of golf – St Andrews.
Women’s Golf Majors in 2022
Women’s golf raised its profile in 2021, and we can look forward to lots more excellent TV coverage in 2022. The lady professionals play for five majors, starting with the Chevron Championship (31 Mar – 3 April). Patty Tavatanakit will bid for back-to-back wins at the Mission Hills Dinah Shore Tournament Course in California.
The US Women’s Open (2-5 June) takes place at Pine Needles Lodge & Golf Club in Southern Pines, North Carolina, and Yuka Saso won last year’s edition.
Later in June (23-26), the women head to the Congressional Club in Bethesda to battle it out for the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship. World #1 and defending champion Nelly Korda will be looking to stay on top of the pack.
The Evian Resort Golf Club in France hosts the Amundi Evian Championship (21-24 July), a tournament in which Australian Minjee Lee grabbed her first major title last year.
The final women’s major of 2022 is the AIG Women’s Open (4-7 August). The tournament breaks new ground as it will be played at Muirfield for the first time, a course that was only open to men for most of its illustrious history. Anna Nordqvist won the 2021 edition at Carnoustie.
Big Events on the PGA Tour in 2022
More big PGA Tour tournaments to put in your diary in 2022, include The Players Championship 2022 (10-13 March). Few courses produce thrilling finishes like TPC Sawgrass, where the famous island green par-3, 17th is one of the most iconic holes in golf.
Another brilliant PGA Tour season climaxes with the FedEx Cup Playoffs, which include the FedEx St. Jude Championship (8-14 August) and the BMW Championship (15-21 August). The winner of the Tour Championship (22-28 August) will bank a $15,000 first prize.
Other Big Golf Events in 2022
Three more exciting big tournaments that are always worth a watch are the WGC-Dell Technologies Match (24-27 March), The Presidents Cup (20-25 September), and the WGC-HSBC Champions (27-30 October).

There may, sadly, be no Ryder Cup in 2022, but the DP World Tour (the new name of the European Tour) provides plenty of opportunities to watch the top professionals.
The Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship (20-23) is where plenty of the top players start their year, and the Desert Swing quickly moves on to the Dubai Desert Classic (27-30 January).
