The 2022 AT&T Byron Nelson could not have had a better finish. On a Sunday that saw 8 players shoot a 64 or better, K.H. Lee was crowned back to back Champion, carding a 63 and finishing 1 stroke better than last year’s finish, (-26).

Lee is the fourth back to back winner of the AT&T Byron Nelson, joining legends Tom Watson, Jack Nicklaus and Sam Snead. This is Lee’s first win of the season and second of his career.

We can only hope this weekend’s tournament provides the same entertainment as we are headed to the Southern Hills Champion Course in Tulsa, OK, for this year’s second major — the PGA Championship.

2022 PGA Championship Event Information

  • Date: May 19–22, 2022
  • Course: Southern Hills Country Club, Tulsa, OK
  • Payout: $12,000,000
  • Defending Champ: Phil Mickelson

The PGA Championship has been played since 1916, initially a match play style tournament and switching to its current stroke play format in 1958. The PGA Championship is unique in it does not invite amateurs to play and the entire field is made up of professionals; which leads to a stacked field and the best of the best competing for the title.

In addition, the field includes the 20 low scorers in the last PGA Professional Championship, a tournament which is composed of golf club professionals and teachers. To be one of the 20 low scorers and have the honor to play this tournament alongside legends of the game must be an otherworldly experience.

What Course Is The PGA Championship Held At?

This week’s major is being held at Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, OK and it is the fifth time the course has hosted the PGA Championship; no other club has hosted the PGA Championship more times. The course was established in 1936 and designed by the great Perry Maxwell, who also helped redesign Augusta to its glory in 1937.

The course went through renovations in 2019 by Gil Hanse which saw every green rebuilt to remove the rough surrounding it, meaning arrant approach shots will roll off the greens rather than stopping in the rough just off the green.

In addition, the greens are smaller then averaged so despite the longer length of the course, at 7,556 yards par 70, it may not feel that way as many holes will play better positionally to set your tee shot up for the approach into the smaller greens.

Not to mention, there is water in play on nearly every hole and seemingly bunkers everywhere else. There is potential for rain on Saturday and the winds will absolutely play a factor all weekend.
