2015 PGA Championship Preview
The 2015 PGA Championship will be contested from August 10th to August 16th at Whistling Straits golf course in Kohley, Wisconsin. The PGA Championship returns to Whistling Straits for the first time since 2010. Last year Rory McIlroy won the PGA Championship for the 2nd time in 3 years and will look to join the elite group of players who have won the tournament on 3 occasions. McIlroy's top competition at the 2015 PGA Championship will likely be from former champions Jason Dufner, Keegan Bradley Phil Mickelson, and Martin Kaymer. Kaymer won the PGA the last time the tournament was held at Whistling Straits and should come in with loads of confidence. After a hard start to the season it is unclear if American Tiger Woods will be contesting the 2015 PGA Championship.
