Preview of 97th PGA Championship

This is it—the 97th PGA Championship is just a few short days away, and what a treat we’re in for this year at the legendary Whistling Straits in Kohler, WI. With its stunning lake views and gorgeous emerald fairways, this one-of-a-kind course is hosting the PGA Championship for the first time since 2010 when Martin Kaymer eeked out a thrilling win in a three-hole playoff.
This year’s PGA Championship is expected to be just as close as it has been in previous years at the Straits, with Rory McIlroy looking to defend his 2014 title against the likes of former PGA champions Tiger Woods, Jason Dufner, and Vijay Singh. But don’t be surprised to see Jordan Spieth or Adam Scott make a big push for the Wanamaker Trophy.
Practice rounds begin on Monday, August 10th and go through Wednesday, August 12th. The Championship will officially tee off on the morning of Thursday, August 13th and finish Sunday, August 16th, so be sure to leave Saturday and Sunday open for the most exciting golf weekend of the year.
Even if you can’t make it out to Whistling Straits, you can still get geared up for the big tournament throughout the week with the “Golf Tie” from Squiddledee Ties. Made with the finest silk right here in the U.S., the “Golf Tie” is the classy, yet clever way to show your love for the sport when you’re dressed your very best.
