The newest edition of The Grain is here to complement your enjoyment of Glory’s Last Shot, with great continuous features like What to Watch For at this year’s PGA Championship and James Mason’s handicapping of the tournament. Spieth for the triple crown? Rory back to form? Can a guy name Woods make the cut? Will Dustin Johnson avoid grounding his club?
In addition, Tom Bedell dives into the history books for a piece about the longest PGA Championship matches ever held, while Tom Harack takes you on a tour of other Midwest stops ripe with golf opportunities. Tony Pioppi contributes a guide to the care and maintenance of links turf which will give you a new appreciation for cow manure.
Is Whistling Straits a links course? Wherever you land on that debate, our Front Nine feature takes you to nine replica courses, tracks that mimic other great golf holes, links or otherwise. But to continue the debate at the 19th hole, Anita Draycott serves up a menu of specialty cocktails created at great golf resorts, including a Championship Martini devised at Whistling Straits in honor of this year’s major.
A video segment with John Stahlschmidt, Master Instructor PGA Tour Golf Academy World Golf Village, will show you how to get up and down from greenside rough with a hinge-and-hold swing.
It’s all ready to tee up at the 2015 PGA Championship Edition of The Grain.
