“Serious Golf… Serious Competition”
March 8 – 12
The Golf Channel’s Morning Drive covered the PGA’s announcement of The Ocean Course hosting the 2021 PGA Championship. Here’s the footage:
The 103rd edition of the Championship in August 2021 returns to the renowned Pete Dye-designed oceanfront layout in South Carolina after its first visit in 2012, when Rory McIlroy captured the Wanamaker Trophy by a record-setting margin. The Ocean Course is one of four venues to host each of the PGA of America’s major championships – the Ryder Cup (1991), the Senior PGA Championship presented by KitchenAid (2007) and the PGA Championship. The Ocean Course also hosted the 2005 PGA Professional National Championship.
Brandon Hartzell is sworn to secrecy. The Ocean Course caddie competed in The Golf Channel’s “ Big Break ” reality show in September, but can’t reveal the results.
Hartzell, a 27-year-old caddie at Kiawah Island’s most famous golf course, was one of 12 golfers competing in the latest version of the reality program — this one titled The Palm Beaches — that begins airing at 9 p.m. Monday. At stake is $120,000 in cash and prizes, along with an exemption into the PGA Tour’s 2015 Barbasol Championship.
