The PGA Championship is the last major tournament of the year and is generally held in August. It is organised by the PGA (Professional Golfer’s Association) of America. Ever since 1916 this Major has been held at different locations in the United States. In its 90-year-long history the PGA Championship has grown into one of the greatest sporting events: over 250,000 people visit the fairways, marvelling at the skill of the greatest golfers. Through its partnership with the PGA of America, Mercedes Benz at the same time becomes a partner of the Senior PGA Championship, which has been held continuously since 1937, making it the longest-standing Major in the field of Senior golfing.
In 2011 the Major tournament will be held in Atlanta, Georgia from 08 – 14 August.
