TULSA, Oklahoma -

The City of Tulsa opened new parking to accommodate for the larger crowds at the PGA Championship that begins Thursday morning at Southern Hills Country Club.

In order to keep up with the larger crowds, a second parking lot will open at the Promenade Mall in Tulsa, in addition to the Mabee Center parking on the Oral Roberts Campus also in Tulsa.

Both will be open Thursday and Friday from 6 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Event leaders say you cannot park in either lot overnight or you will likely get towed.

Free shuttles will be running from both lots to take guests to and from Southern Hills.

The shuttle to the mall is called the North Lot shuttle, while the Oral Roberts shuttle is called the South Lot shuttle.

PGA Director Bryan Karns says they had to plan the event in a record short time, but they are confident their plans will continue to go well throughout the week.

"It’s remarkable the way the city has been able to pull this off in a short time, normally we have seven years to pull off a PGA, but this time we had 16 months,” Karns said.

Tulsa Police say be sure to lock your car doors before you hop on the shuttle and make sure you don't leave anything valuable in your car.
