Oklahoma, where the PGA Tour comes sweeping down the fairway.
Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa once again plays host to the PGA Championship in 2022. The course isn’t unfamiliar with hosting the major, though.
This year marks the fifth time that the PGA Championship will take place at the course in Oklahoma, and typically, the tournaments don’t end in major blowouts. Of the last four champions, two have won by just two strokes, while another has won by just three strokes.
Here’s what you need to know about this year’s PGA Championship venue:
