Last night the Charlotte City Council honored the PGA with a Proclamation, in honor of the 99th Professional Golfers’ Association (PGA) Championship tournament that will be held in Charlotte, North Carolina, at Quail Hollow Club from August 7-13, 2017.  Receiving the Proclamation was Jason Mengel the 2017 PGA Championship Director. 

The PGA event marks the first time the City of Charlotte will hosted a major golf championship. The Championship will draw from a pool of professional Golfers from around the world with an expected crow of more than 200,000 fans during the seven day event. 

The PGA Championship is an annual event and one of four major Championships on the PGA TOUR with a winning purse of $1,890,000.

We have been fortunate to be on the Greens several years in Hawaii for the PGA Sony Open and wanted to share some of our video highlights from 2013.  “Women on the green at the PGA Sony Open” with Tina Quizon. We took our TV Camera out on the green for all of the PGA excitement, afterwards we caught up with Russell Henley, the PGA Champion at the 2013 Sony Open in Hawaii. Not only was Russell’s score one of the lowest of the Sony Open 63-63-67-63-256, Russell himself was consider to be a young Champion at the Age of 24, so we ask him why his win was so important for the youth and Children of Hawaii.
