2015 Sr PGA Presented by KitchenAid

May 19 - 24

 

The 2015 Senior PGA Championship presented by KitchenAid at French Lick Resort is being billed as a “Walk with History.” If you’ve spent any time at the resort, you likely know our golf history is rich. At the top of the list: Walter Hagen’s 1924 PGA Championship win on The Donald Ross Course and two LPGA Championships in 1959 and 1960 won by Mickey Wright and Betsy Rawls, respectively. This will be the Senior PGA’s first championship in Indiana. It will be on the course Hall of Fame designer Pete Dye said couldn’t be built atop one of Indiana’s highest points; that is until inspiration struck and he scratched out a plan on a napkin (which will be on display at the tournament).
