A LOOK AHEAD.... 94TH PGA CHAMPIONSHIP – AUGUST 2012

(www.pga.com)
Kiawah Island Golf Resort will test the strongest field in golf when it hosts the 94th PGA Championship in August 2012. The Ocean Course will become only the fourth course to host each of the PGA of America’s major championships – the Ryder Cup (1991), the Senior PGA Championship (2007), and the PGA Championship (2012). It also marks the first time one of golf’s majors is held in SC.
