The fourth and final major tournament in the golf season, the PGA Championship has become a staple in the sport since its inception in 1916. The tournament is held each August, three weeks prior to Labor Day weekend. The PGA Championship is typically driven by the sport's best players, barring most amateurs unless winners of a prior major. Such a competitive field of players has made the tournament the most lucrative among the four majors, holding a purse of $10 million in 2014. The 2015 PGA Championship will be held at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wisconsin. In 2014, Rory McIlroy took home the largest sum ever recorded in the tournament with his, receiving $1.8 million in earnings at Valhalla Gold Club in Louisville, Kentucky.

PGA Championship History
Featuring dozens of the sport’s most reputable players, the PGA Championship is the fourth and final major championship of the golf season. The tournament is typically held in mid-August during the third weekend before Labor Day and is far-and-away the biggest payout among all four major tournaments. In 2014, the purse was $10 million, making it the most lucrative professional golfing contest among all four majors.
The PGA Championship serves as a career-defining achievement for each year’s winner. Claiming the title secures a player’s future in several ways; they never have to qualify to play in future PGA Championships, are automatically invited to play in the three surrounding major tournaments for the next five years and also receive an invitation to The Players Cup Championship over the next five years.
The first-ever PGA Championship was held in October of 1916 at Siwanoy Country Club in Bronxville, New York. Jim Barnes was the tournament’s first winner, claiming a $500 prize and gold-studded medal. The tournament is traditionally held on the eastern coast of the United States and has only traveled west 10 times over the last century. 2015’s competition will be held at Whistling Straits in Sheboygan County, Wisconsin.
Perhaps the most difficult tournament of the four majors to compete in, the PGA Championship typically only showcases high-profile professional golfers, though amateurs do have the possibility to play. Amateurs can play in the tournament if they have won a past major, no other exceptions are permitted. Places 20 to 156 are reserved for club professionals, the largest among all four majors.
