How to Play the PGA Championship on a Golf Simulator

For those who may never have the opportunity to watch or play golf at Valhalla Golf Club, here's how to play the PGA Championship on a golf simulator.

Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Kentucky, was what became of Dwight Gahm's vision to create an exceptional course that could host a major golf championship, of which has hosted many. The course, designed by Jack Nicklaus, spans over 500 acres of rolling hills and has been consistently ranked among Golf Digest's "America's 100 Greatest Courses" for nearly 30 years.

With typically the deepest and strongest field of players in the men's game, the PGA Championship is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated events of the golf season, and it's not hard to see why. The tournament brings together the best players on the planet, as ranked by the Official World Golf Rankings. It is golf's only all-professional major tournament.
