All Eyes on Valhalla: Previewing the PGA Championship 

The PGA Championship, golf’s second major championship of the year, is poised to kick off this week at the esteemed Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Kentucky. With the most dominant players like Scottie Scheffler, Brooks Koepka and Rory McIlroy all winning their last starts, anticipation for an exhilarating showdown is at its peak. 

Shifting gears from the recent Masters Tournament, where we saw Scottie Scheffler win his second title, the focus now turns to the PGA Championship and the field of over 150 players. The Masters, which took place last month, provided its own share of narratives including the tension between the PGA Tour and LIV Golf, and the upcoming championship promises excitement of its own.  

The PGA Championship finds itself at the center of attention as top-tier talents like Tiger Woods, Jon Rahm and Scheffler prepare to showcase their skills on Valhalla’s challenging fairways. Koepka is looking to defend his title, and an inspiring story from last year’s championship returns as club professional, Michael Block out of Southern California, returns after securing a top-15 placement last year.  

Block was one of 20 club professionals to qualify for the tournament. He gained significant media attention after being in the top 10 after cuts and then sinking a hole-in-one on Sunday to help him secure a top 15 spot, receiving the automatic invite back for this year’s championship.  

Ticket prices for the first two rounds of the Masters were much more expensive than the get-in price for this week’s tournament at Valhalla. The average ticket prices to watch the players at Augusta reached $2,700 and even surmounted $3,000 for some days. Get-in prices for the PGA Championship over the weekend range from $200-$2,000 depending on what sort of access attendees want. Tickets For Less has endless options from general admission to VIP hospitality.  

While these ticket prices aren’t quite as expensive as the tickets to Augusta, the demand is still there. Fans are always eager to experience a major championship firsthand. As the tournament begins, spectators can expect nothing short of excellence from the golfers and the golf course.
