PGA Events in San Francisco

From the SF Chronicle:

"Finally, the calendar is filling again.

Tuesday's decision by the Board of Supervisors, to approve the city's revised agreement with the PGA Tour, cemented a tantalizing stretch of elite events on the horizon. It starts with the U.S. Amateur in August at the Olympic Club (OK, so those are the finest amateur players) ... then the Presidents Cup in 2009 at Harding ... and the U.S. Open in 2012 at Olympic ... and back to Harding for the PGA Tour's semifinal playoff event in 2013 or '14.

That's not even counting the U.S. Open down the road at Pebble Beach in 2010, or the U.S. Women's Open promised to Pebble sometime after '10. Or the LPGA event now held annually in Danville. Or the Champions Tour's season-ending tournament in Sonoma, which will move to Harding in 2010 and '11.

The newcomer on the scene is the Presidents Cup, now officially set for Harding Park in October 2009. This is not the customary stroke-play event in which a cluster of players can steam down the stretch with a chance to win. The Presidents Cup matches 12-man teams -- one from the United States and an international squad comprised of non-European players -- in a three-day, match-play format."
