The 2022 PGA Championship will be the 104th edition and the second major championship of the year following the Masters in April.

Throughout the course of the last decade and a half, the PGA Championship has witnessed a series of surprising winners, including Y.E. Yang, who shocked the world with his out-of-nowhere victory over Tiger Woods in 2009.

Yang hasn’t been the only coming out of nowhere; Keegan Bradley in 2011, and Jimmy Walker in 2016 also have. And most recently, Phil Mickelson came out of years of obscurity last year and picked up his second PGA Championship title.

Mickelson will not be defending his title this week, becoming just the third reigning champion not to defend his title after Tiger Woods in 2008 and Ben Hogan in 1949. That’s in the last 75 years.

Preview of 2022 PGA

Only three of the last 11 championships have seen non-American winners, and two of those were by Ireland’s Rory McIlroy.

Jon Rahm has had two top-eight finishes at the PGA championship, and had a major victory last year’s U.S. Open. He tied for fourth in 2018, and eighth in 2021.

Max Homa, on the other hand, arrives at Southern Hills as a champion – winning the Wells Fargo Championship last week by two strokes.

Here’s information on ticket prices and what visitors can expect to spend while at this weekend’s PGA tournament.
