The PGA Championship, the second major men’s golf season, will be held at Oak Hill Country Club (par 70, 7,394 yards) in Rochester, New York, for four days from the 18th (Korean time).
In this event, 156 world-class athletes compete to compete for the title.

The total prize money for the tournament has not yet been determined. Last year, the total prize money was 15 million dollars and the winning prize was 2.7 million dollars (approximately 3.61 billion won).

The Wanamaker Trophy, given to the winner, is considered one of the representative championship trophies in major golf tournaments, along with the Claret Jug awarded to the Open champion.

The ‘self-confidence showdown’ between PGA Tour players and LIV Series players, which attracted fans’ attention at the Masters, is expected to draw great attention at the PGA Championship.

Among the players participating in this year’s PGA Championship, 18 are from LIV.

At the Masters in April, PGA Tour’s Jon Lam (Spain) and LIV’s Brooks Koepka (USA) competed for the title until the end, and Lam became the main character in the green jacket.

LIV players Koepka and Phil Mickelson (USA) tied for 2nd place, and Patrick Reed (USA) also tied for 4th place. LIV players also showed formidable skills.

LIV, which was launched in June of last year, has not yet won a major tournament since then.

Last year’s Open Champion Cameron Smith (Australia) was on the PGA Tour when he won the championship, and later moved to LIV.

In this tournament, the ‘Big 3’ Lam, the world’s No. 1 to 3 representing the PGA, Scotty Scheffler (USA), and Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland) are expected to compete for the championship.

If Ram wins, he will stand at the top of three of the four major tournaments following the 2021 US Open and this year’s Masters.토토사이트

McIlroy, who missed the cut at the Masters, will challenge for the third time in his career following 2012 and 2014.

Justin Thomas (USA), who won this event last year, is also aiming to win the PGA Championship three times, including in 2017.

Jordan Spieth (USA) can achieve the ‘Career Grand Slam’ by winning only this tournament.
