Summer is without a doubt one of the most exciting times for golfers and those who follow professional golf. From the end of spring to the end of summer, golf fans can look forward to the Masters, the US Open, the British Open, and the PGA Championship. These four majors constitute some of the most exciting and competitive clashes among golf’s greats. On top of an impressive purse, the winner also receives the glory and invites to the other three major events, securing the winner a spot in some of golf’s most prestigious events.
This year marks 100 years of the PGA Championship. The event, which takes place at Baltusrol Golf Club in 2016, has come a long way since its beginnings in 1916. The very first PGA Championship took place at Siwanoy Country Club, and the winner took home $500 and a diamond-studded gold medal. Compare that to last year’s winner Jason Day, who received $1.8 million, and it is easy to see how far both the PGA Championship has come. To continue the tradition of the original trophy, the winner also receives a replica trophy that they get to keep for one year.
Since the PGA Championship is the final major of the season, it’s important for the pros to have both their mind and body in good shape. This year, it’s even more important, since golf is returning to the Olympics; professional golfers will have yet another major competition to look forward to after the PGA Championship concludes.
