2024 men’s major championship venues including Augusta National, Royal Troon

The year 2023 was an interesting one for the men’s golf majors with two of the four won by golfers claiming their first major championships.

At the Masters, Jon Rahm outdueled Brooks Koepka at Augusta National for his second major win and first green jacket.

Then, Koepka got his revenge and took home the trophy at Oak Hill for his third Wanamaker trophy and fifth major.

A month later, Wyndham Clark earned his first major after he outlasted Rory McIlroy and Rickie Fowler at Los Angles Country Club to win the U.S. Open.

And, finally, Brian Harman dominated Royal Liverpool for his first major title and earned himself the title of Champion Golfer of the Year.

As we move on from 2023, here’s a look at all four venues that will host men’s major championships in 2024.
