Rory McIlroy is looking to claim his fifth major title as golf’s brightest and best take centre stage at the PGA Championship.

The Northern Irishman had gone 18 months without success before topping the leaderboard at the Wells Fargo Championship earlier this month to stake his claim for favouritism ahead of the second major of the season.

PGA Championship 2021 Course

The PGA Championship 2021 takes place at the wonderfully named Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Golf Resort in South Carolina. Created for the 1991 Ryder Cup, the Atlantic Ocean is a stone’s throw away and it was designed with Scottish and Irish links-style courses in mind.

The Ocean Course is a Par 72 and boasts the most seaside holes in North America. Basically, don’t end up in the drink because you won’t get your ball back.
