The PGA Championship returns for the 103rd time in 2021 to South Carolina’s Kiawah Island. The Kiawah Island Resort’s Ocean Course, designed by the late Pete Dye, is set to host the PGA Tour major between 17 – 23 May 2021. The five-course Golf Resort is no stranger to major tournaments having previously hosted the Ryder Cup, PGA Championship and Senior PGA Championship. The winner of the 2020 PGA Championship is USA young-gun Collin Morikawa, who finished with a two-shot lead over Englishman Paul Casey and American heavyweight Dustin Johnson. Kiawah Island is just 25 miles south of Charleston on the United States’ eastern seaboard.

Situated just south of Charleston in South Carolina, the Kiawah Island Golf Resort's Ocean Course is a seaside golf course designed by the late Pete Dye, who passed away in January 2020. The golf course enjoys the infamous 'war by the shore' nickname, which is attributed to its serious challenge in the face of frequent Atlantic Ocean winds. The golf course is laid out over relatively flat terrain, flanked by a marshy lagoon on the west and ocean on the east — the challenging Ocean Course at Kiawah Island the all-professional lineup at the 2021 PGA Championship.
PGA Championship Format
Play for the PGA Championship was originally match play, however, it has been stroke play since 1958. The PGA Championship tournament features a 72-hole format of 18 holes per day for four days, occurring from Thursday to Sunday. The lowest aggregate score after 72 holes is crowned the PGA Champion. If scores are tied, the lead players enter into a play-off of a two-hole aggregate, with the leader crowned champion, followed by sudden death if players are still tied. The field begins with 156 players. The first cut happens after 36 holes so that Saturday begins with the top 60 players from the original 156.
