San Francisco proposes trading 2026 Presidents Cup at TPC Harding Park for a recurring PGA Tour event to be hosted by the local NBA star, according to a report by the San Francisco Chronicle’s Ron Kroichick
Proposed: By TPC Harding Park, to trade the 2026 Presidents Cup for an annual PGA Tour event to be hosted by NBA star Stephen Curry, who plays for the Bay Area’s Golden State Warriors, according to a report Thursday by the San Francisco Chronicle’s Ron Kroichick. The deal was expected to be approved Thursday by the city’s Recreation and Park Commission, which would need to OK an amendment to the city’s contract with the PGA Tour, according to the report by Kroichick, who is an occasional contributor to Morning Read. TPC Harding Park is scheduled to host the PGA Championship on Aug. 6-9. The course had been awarded the 2025 Presidents Cup, but when the coronavirus pandemic prompted the PGA of America to postpone this year’s Ryder Cup to 2021, the biennial Presidents Cup reverted to an even-numbered-year schedule. Curry, 32, a six-time all-star who led the Warriors to three NBA titles, played on sponsor exemptions in Bay Area Korn Ferry Tour events in 2018 and 2019, missing the cut. Curry, an avid golfer and regular on the celebrity circuit, guaranteed funding for Howard University, a historically black school in Washington, to start men’s and women’s golf programs.
