Major golf connects society. Four times a year, the best men around the globe congregate for tradition, trophies, and large sums of money. Take a minute and mark your calendar for these weekends in 2022:


  • THE PLAYERS | March 10-13, TPC Sawgrass, Ponte Vedra, Florida:
    Okay so we said four, and technically that’s true. There are four majors on the calendar, but between its iconic venue and the unofficial title of fifth major or “The Players’ major”, The Players is an annual must-watch. A new record purse of $20 million dollars will surely dominate headlines leading into competition.


  • The Masters | April 7-10, Augusta National Golf Club, Augusta, Georgia:
    Perhaps the most iconic image from golf in 2021 was Shota Hayafuji bowing towards the 18th fairway after earning his first win as a caddie while Hideki Matsuyama became a major champion for the first time. Every year delivers a story at Augusta, but that gesture might be a tough image to beat for a long time to come.


  • The PGA Championship | May 19-22, Southern Hills Country Club, Tulsa, Oklahoma:
    Phil won the PGA last year at fifty years old. If you don’t believe us, just check lefty’s Twitter feed. After hosting a record four PGA’s (on top of 3 US Opens), Southern Hills will award a fifth Wanamaker trophy next year.


  • The US Open | June 16-19, The Country Club, Brookline, Massachusetts:
    Jon Rahm’s 2021 US Open win and the entire year was one of those years some players dream of, but a handful of setbacks and a Ryder Cup shellacking has left the fiery Spaniard focused. From the Miracle at Brookline in ‘99 all the way back to Francis Ouimet and the “greatest game ever played”, The Country Club is a classic host that never fails to deliver. 


  • The Open Championship | July 14-17, Saint Andrews Links (Old Course), Fife, Scotland:
    It’s the 150th Open and the 30th playing at Saint Andrews. Colin Morikawa proved his PGA Championship win as a rookie was no fluke by winning at The Open at Royal St George’s in 2021. After also showing up big at the Ryder Cup, there’s no reason to believe Colin can’t be the first to retain the Claret Jug since Paddy Harrington followed Tiger’s ‘05/’06 victories by going back-to-back in ‘07 and ‘08.

A self-taught stick with a hack brain, Bud grew up playing golf year-round in north Florida. Born-again New England, Bud learned what an “off-season” is. He now lives in Salem, MA with his wife, daughter, two cats, and dog, Miller. He is the sole Y chromosome in the house, believes we did land on the moon and strongly advocates for walk-up music on the first and eighteenth tees.
