Ocean Course Is The Toughest Challenge In The PGA Championship

The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island is adding to the thrill and enthusiasm of the PGA Championship being played at the longest course – 7,876 yards. But it isn’t the daunting size of the course that is challenging the golfers. They face the toughest challenge from the wind blowing from the Atlantic Ocean.

Let’s take a round of the course….
