Golf Australia Express : Issue 48—PGA Championship
All the big players in golf see the huge potential growth—and huge dollars—that could result from a fruitful Olympic reintroduction. THIS WEEK marks the first time Kiawah Island's Ocean course in South Carolina has hosted a PGA Championship. And from the looks of this stunning yet tremendously difficult track, weather will play a vital role in who takes out the year's final major. ONE QUESTION THAT WILL keep nagging players teeing it up at Kiawah Island this week is whether to throw caution to the wind or not. And if ever the expression had a literal meaning it would be at the Ocean Course, a superb 7600-yard Pete Dye layout in South Carolina. On a calm day, the average length layout is incredibly picturesque with views over the adjacent Atlantic Ocean and shots over water to meticulously kept greens. So peaceful and relaxing. A dream to play. Now add some wind—a little more than a zephyr will do—and you’ve got a monster on your hands considered by many to be the toughest test in golf. A nightmare to overcome—no, survive. And for the first time in a long time, the PGA Championship threatens to be a tougher test than the US Open. COURSE THE The 17th at the Ocean course is a real drama queen, or rather a Queen of drama. Surviving here could be the difference between triumph and tragedy.
