  • Long drive competition returns to PGA Championship at the Straits
    The 97th PGA Championship at Whistling Straits will host the PGA Championship Long Drive Competition, which began in 1952, and was re-launched during last year's Championship at Valhalla Golf Club.

    During the practice round on Tuesday, Aug. 11, all players will be offered the opportunity to hit one tee shot from the No. 2 Tee. The tee shot will have to come to rest in the fairway to be eligible to win the Long Drive Competition. Whistling Straits' second hole is a 593-yard par-5 that is appropriately dubbed "Big Country."
  • The PGA of America, in collaboration with CBS Sports and Turner Sports, will feature an unprecedented level of production and technical enhancements to bolster fan experience across all multimedia platforms for the 97th PGA Championship.
    A great many opportunities will be in play for fans that follow from home, as well as those who attend the championship in person. Click the headline to see all of what awaits PGA Championship fans in 2015.
