CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (Reuters) - The PGA Championship will move from August to May, starting in 2019, the PGA of America announced on Tuesday.

PGA of America CEO Pete Bevacqua confirmed the news at a joint press conference with PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan at Quail Hollow.

"The landscape of golf is changing," Bevacqua said, citing the reinclusion of golf in the Olympics as a major reason for the switch.

"We felt it was important as an organisation to seize this opportunity."
