All Eyes Will Be On Kentucky Next Week

If you love world-wide events, golf, or both, then this part of the world is the place to be in August! Yes, for the third time in its rather short history, the Valhalla Golf Club in eastern Jefferson County (about 50 minutes from Lexington) is hosting the PGA Championship. That means all eyes in the sport and golf world will be trained on Central Kentucky to see who wins 2014’s fourth and last major championship of the year. The world’s best golfers will compete over 4 days in Kentucky to see who will have their name added to the prized Wanamaker Trophy and grab a piece of golf immortality. This year marks the 96th year the PGA championship has been contested.

In 1996, Mark Brooks claimed the title with a sudden death win over Kentucky’s own Kenny Perry and in 2000, Tiger Woods wins, again in a playoff, both right here at Valhalla. In between and around these stirring events, Valhalla has hosted the 65th and 72nd Senior PGA Championships won by Hale Irwin and Tom Watson respectively and the United States’ last Ryder Cup Victory in 2008. So, I encourage you to get out to see some or all the 96th PGA Championship. It starts with practice rounds on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, August 4th, 5th, and 6th. The competition begins Thursday, August 7 through Sunday, August 10th. For more information go to
