The course

Just as it did when it hosted this event in 2012, the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island will break the record for longest venue in major championship history at a whopping 7,876 yards. The course was awarded the 1991 Ryder Cup before it was built, forcing famed architect Pete Dye into work to have the setup ready for the event. Built on two-and-a-half miles of beachside property just outside Charleston, South Carolina, the course features a figure-eight design and 10 holes on the ocean - more than any other course in North America.

The challenging layout will play to a par of 72 for the PGA Championship and feature seven par-4s that will play over 460 yards in length. The course's primary protection is the wind off the Atlantic Ocean; with routine gusts over 25 mph, the layout can give the world's best golfers plenty of nightmares.

McIlroy claimed the second major of his career at the last PGA Championship played at Kiawah, finishing 13-under to win by an impressive eight strokes.
