Golf News: PGA Championship at Sunriver Resort
The 46th PGA Professional National Championship begins Sunday at Sunriver Resort, and the property is buzzing with activity.
Players and their entourages, staff, volunteers, and media members have descended upon our Central Oregon resort, as 312 Professionals prepare to compete against Defending Champion Matt Dobyns through four rounds of play for the Championship. The emerging Champion will be presented the coveted Walter Hagen Cup, and a $550,000 purse.
