From Glyndebourne to Glastonbury - A social calendar for the 21st century
95th PGA Championship
08 August, 2013 - 11 August, 2013
The Ocean Course, Kiawah Island, South Carolina
The PGA Championship in the USA features one of the strongest
fields in golf and is considered one of the most important sporting
events in the world.
Since 1916 the world's best golfers have been competing for the Wanamaker Trophy, and previous title-holders include Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Vijay Singh, Jack Nicklaus, Sam Snead, Ben Hogan and Walter Hagen.
In 2012 the PGA championship made its first visit to the Ocean Course, Kiawah Island, South Carolina. Like the golf courses of the British Isles, this American course is famous for its windy conditions, and playing in the volatile conditions requires enormous ingenuity.
Located on the eastern-most end of Kiawah Island, The Ocean Course has more seaside holes than any other course in the Northern Hemisphere . Course architect, Pete Dye, used the natural beauty of Kiawah's seaside environment to develop an old links look reminiscent of the celebrated seaside courses of Great Britain and Ireland.
Rory McIlroy won the 94th PGA championship in 2012.
