As one of the four majors in the professional golf circuit, the PGA Championship brings the world’s elite players together for a notoriously challenging stroke play tournament. Competitors play 18 holes per day over 4 days for a total of 72 holes. The winner receives the renowned Wanamaker Trophy, named for Rodman Wanamaker, a department store magnate largely responsible for founding the Professional Golf Association. The winner also takes home the lion’s share of the purse, which is always over $10 million in recent years.
Are you planning to watch the PGA Championship? Coverage will typically broadcast on CBS and ESPN. Stay tuned for the complete schedule. If you aren’t a cable subscriber, don’t worry. There are several ways to enjoy the PGA Championship live stream.
