PGA Championship 2021: A Return to Kiawah Island

In 2012, Rory McIlroy captured the Wanamaker Trophy by a record margin of eight strokes in South Carolina's first-ever major golf championship. From May 17th to 23rd, the strongest international field in golf will return to The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Golf Resort for the 2021 PGA Championship.

Designed by Alice and Pete Dye to host the 1991 Ryder Cup, The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island winds naturally through windswept dunes along the coast of South Carolina. The Dyes adapted characteristics of famed links-style tracks of Scotland and Ireland to the subtropical climate of the Lowcountry, resulting in a course that boasts the most seaside holes in North America.

For the most up-to-date information regarding what to expect at the PGA Championship, you can either view our most recent update post or head over to the Spectator Guide on the official PGA Championship website.
