PGA Championship - Oak Hill Country Club, Rochester, New York (8th - 11th August 2013)
Kiawah Island and the notorious Ocean Course welcomed the PGA Championship to South Carolina in 2012 and after much build up, the tournament was one to remember. Known as “Glory’s Last Shot”, the PGA Championship is the last chance of the year to secure a major championship, something that weighs more heavily on some including the likes of Tiger Woods who of course won’t be back in many people’s eyes until he secures his 15th major.
It didn’t work out for Woods this year as poor putting meant his solid play from tee to green went unrewarded but the same cannot be said for Rory McIlory as he holed out beautifully to crush the field by a record 8 shots, the second time he has done so in a major in the space of 18 months!
Rory was undoubtedly the star of the show as drive after drive sailed down the fairway, iron after iron went hunting for the pin and putt after putt found the bottom of the cup but the Kiawah Island Ocean Course also played its part. When the wind was absent it was there for the taking and when the wind blew it was a real brute which made for compelling viewing. In fact the only thing better for golf fans than sitting on the sofa, beer in hand, soaking up the action from South Carolina is to be at the event itself and thanks to a selection of tournament packages from Your Golf Travel, 2013 could be the year you attend your first major championship.
