For the first time since the 1950s, the Ryder Cup appears to be heading to the Pacific.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Olympic Club has struck a deal with the PGA of America to host the 2028 PGA Championship and 2032 Ryder Cup. The agreement is expected to be made official on Wednesday.

The Chronicle reported that Olympic had been in the running for the 2027 U.S. Open, but the USGA went with Pebble Beach upon realization that the club might take the PGA/Ryder Cup endeavors instead. Despite the club's history—there have been five U.S. Opens and three U.S. Amateurs at the San Francisco property—the move would seemingly knock Olympic out of the U.S. Open rota.

The last time the Ryder Cup visited California was in 1959, played at Elderado Golf Club in Indian Wells. Although the state has held four PGA Championships, it will be just the second time the Wanamaker Trophy will be contested in San Francisco, the first coming in 2020 when TPC Harding Park hosts the major.
