If nothing else, the players will enjoy getting some sun on their backs at Kiawah Island. That is the prevailing weather pattern, and temperatures could top 82˚F as the tournament concludes on a sultry Sunday.

At a golf course that few in the field had seen before, it was always possible that fine margins might make all the difference.
And perhaps the biggest difference-maker of all was Brett Waldren, a former grinder who finished T14 in PGA TOUR qualifying at TPC Craig Ranch way back in 2010.
What’s our point? Well, Waldren is now a caddie and has been on bag duties for K.H. Lee, who – you’ve guessed it already – went on to win the Byron Nelson Championship on Sunday at TPC Craig Ranch.
It helped of course that the Korean delivered a career-best tee-to-green performance, but having someone with knowhow in your corner never hurts and Waldren’s influence was clear for all to see – Lee was as cool as a cucumber as the wind blew in Dallas.
It was wetter than the proverbial otter’s pocket at Craig Ranch, but Lee overcame a lengthy weather delay on Sunday to clinch a nerve-less maiden PGA TOUR triumph – if he continues to strike the ball as well as this, you suspect it won’t be his last.
One of the Korean’s immediate rewards for victory is a place in this week’s PGA Championship, although a repeat of his -25 winning score last time out seems to be an impossibility given the challenge presented by the Ocean Course on Kiawah Island.
Last Week’s Fantasy Results
We’re proud to report that all seven picks from last week’s segment and five from our Tuesday Sleeper Report made the weekend!
With the 12/12 made cuts, our best result was Patton Kizzire and Charl Schwartzal both with a T3 finish.
The 2021 PGA Championship Field
The 156-man field is set, and all eyes will be on Rory McIlroy, who set a tournament record when he won by eight strokes at Kiawah Island in this event back in 2012. Fresh from victory in the Wells Fargo Championship, the Irishman will be one to watch.
As ever, a major brings together the best in the business, and South Carolina is set to be hit by a wave of them – Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, Bryson DeChambeau, Jon Rahm, defending champion Collin Morikawa and many more besides.
2021 PGA Championship: Seven things to know about the unique Ocean Course
Other than the Masters at Augusta National, every major championship brings the nuance and intrigue of a course that is seen, at most, every 5-7 years by the general golf public. St. Andrews, Pinehurst and Olympic Club are golf courses we hear a lot about, but they are not necessarily courses we see all that often. The same is true of the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island, which will host this week’s PGA Championship.
Pete and Alice Dye’s design was constructed 30 years ago, and this will be the third monumental event on its grounds. It ticks all the boxes of a top-shelf championship golf course and fits nicely into all the top-whatever lists (24th on Golf Digest’s list of top 100 in North America and 14th on Golfweek’s list of best modern courses in the U.S.).
With such a course and such a history comes plenty to know even before the first shots are hit at the PGA Championship this week. So let’s take a gander at the beautiful behemoth that sidles up next to the Atlantic Ocean on the South Carolina coast as the fourth major of this PGA Tour season gets underway.
- Going long: This will officially be the longest PGA Championship and major championship in terms of scorecard yardage. This is perhaps not as meaningful as it seems given the way technology has increased to match the length of courses (200 yards is probably pretty easily erased in the last nine years), but it’s still worth noting that this is the longest of the 456 majors that have ever been played in the history of this sport. Here are the top five.
- Kiawah (2021 PGA) – 7,876 yards
- Erin Hills (2017 U.S. Open) – 7,741 yards
- Chambers Bay (2015 U.S. Open) – 7,695 yards
- Kiawah (2012 PGA) – 7,676 yards
- Hazeltine (2009 PGA) – 7,674 yards
- 1991 Ryder Cup: In addition to Rory McIlroy laying waste to a great field back at the 2012 PGA Championship, this course also hosted a Ryder Cup exactly 30 years ago. In fact, it was originally built after being awarded the 1991 Ryder Cup, which went on to be probably the biggest inflection point in the storied history of that event and maybe the best Ryder Cup of all time.
Last Year’s Results from the PGA Championship
It’s been barely nine months since Collin Morikawa was crowned king of TPC Harding Park and clinched the PGA Championship crown.
He bettered Dustin Johnson and Paul Casey by two strokes to land his maiden major, and that was despite starting the Sunday two shots behind DJ.
But an outstanding round of 64 – aided by some bold shot-making which included a drive to within 7ft of the Par 4 sixteenth – propelled the youngster above an unusually sluggish Johnson.
In the end, the 129 shots Morikawa took over the weekend equaled the PGA Championship record low – this was the most deserved of major victories.
Final Word About PGA Championship 2021
The majors bring with them an outstanding slate of contest quality and variety, and so this is as good a week as any to explore ways in which we can maximize the return from our investments – or just have some fun with the milly maker, if you prefer.
