The 4th and the Final Golf Major of the year ‘The PGA Championship 2018’ will take place from 9th to 12th August, 2018 at the Bellerive Golf Course. Live action from the tournament will be broadcast for the Indian golf enthusiasts on DSPORT, a premium sports TV channel by Discovery Communications. The 100th edition of the championships will broadcast on the channel from 10:30 pm (IST) onwards. The historic course last hosted the PGA Championship back in 2013. With dense rough lining the fairways, sprawling bunkers that are surrounded by multiple greens and weather conditions affecting scoring makes Bellerive a very challenging course to play on.
The centennial edition of this prestigious tournament will once again see a strong line-up of marquee golfers competing to become the ‘Champion Golfer’ and lift the iconic Wanamaker Trophy. The ‘PGA Championship’ will witness the world’s best golfers competing for a handsome prize purse of $10,500,000. All eyes will be on the defending champion Justin Thomas who will face robust competition from players like Tiger Woods, Rory Mcllroy, Jordan Spieth, Justin Rose and YE Yang.
Shubhankar Sharma who turned in a creditable performance making the Cut in The Open at Carnoustie in July 2018 will be leading the charge for India.
Francesco Molinari, who recently won ‘The Open’, will be high on confidence to compete in this final championship aiming to win it and close his season on a high. Jason Day with his back to back victories in the Torrey Pines and Quail Hollow has shown consistency which is why he will be a player to look forward to.
The first ‘PGA Championship’ took place in 1916 and since then has become a huge platform for golfers to showcase their talent and skills with the club. DSPORT will bring the feel and fervor live from the Bellerive Golf Course for the Indian golf enthusiasts and give them an opportunity to witness 4-days of top-notch live golfing action.
