FRISCO, Texas and (March 29, 2023) ー The PGA of America has named Jason Soucy as Championship Director of the 2025 PGA Championship, which will be played May 15-18 at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Soucy returned to the PGA of America in November 2022 following more than 13 years with the Travelers Championship, spearheading sponsorship sales in his most recent role as Director of Business Development. Soucy previously served with the PGA of America as Tournament Director for the 2001 and 2003 KitchenAid Senior PGA Championships, as well as Operations Coordinator at the 1999 Ryder Cup matches.
"We are thrilled to have Jason leading the charge for the 2025 PGA Championship at Quail Hollow,” said PGA of America Senior Director of Championships David Charles. “With his extensive experience in managing major golf events, we are confident that Jason and his team will help deliver a truly unforgettable championship in 2025.”
A native of Manchester, New Hampshire, Soucy’s career has also included stops as Vice President of Sales/Tournament Director at IMG Golf and Assistant General Manager/Director of Sales at Boston University’s Agganis Arena.
“I am absolutely ecstatic to begin preparations for the 2025 PGA Championship in Charlotte,” said Soucy. “Quail Hollow is one of golf’s premier destinations, with a stellar reputation in hosting golf events. I look forward to collaborating with the community, business leaders and the Club to ensure that this PGA Championship is a world-class experience.”
The PGA of America also named Michael Felix as Corporate Hospitality Sales Manager for the 2025 PGA Championship. He brings substantial professional golf sales experience, including most recently at the 2022 President’s Cup at Quail Hollow. Soucy and Felix have opened the championship office at Quail Hollow as preparations for 2025 are underway.
Founded in 1959, Quail Hollow opened in 1961 and continues to be one of the southeastern United States’ elite courses. Famed golf course architect George Cobb originally designed Quail Hollow to capture the beauty and challenging terrain of the Piedmont region, while Tom Fazio turned it into the championship caliber course it is today beginning with a redesign in 1997 as well as several modifications since then.
“Quail Hollow Club is excited to once again partner with the PGA of America as we prepare to welcome the best players in the world back for another major championship, " said Quail Hollow Club President, Johnny Harris. “We take great pride in the success of the 2017 PGA Championship, not only as it significantly added to our history of hosting special golf events, but just as importantly showcased the successful partnerships amongst the City of Charlotte, Mecklenburg County, the State of North Carolina, and the surrounding region. We are eager to build on both legacies when we welcome the PGA Championship back to Quail Hollow in 2025.”
This will be Quail Hollow’s second time as host of the PGA Championship. In August 2017, a 24-year-old Justin Thomas claimed his first major championship victory.
