49th PGA PROFESSIONALS CHAMPIONSHIP
This year, the 49th PGA Professionals Championship finds its home in Verona, NY at Turning Stone Resort. Here, the most talented PGA Professionals will compete for the coveted national championship and exemption into 6 PGA TOUR events, including the 2016 PGA Championship at Baltusrol. Bringing club pros together from every region of the country, this 4-round event is unquestionably the “major” tournament for our Home Pro Staff. In addition to this year’s eventual PPC champion, each player who finishes in the top 20 will also receive exemption into the 2016 PGA Championship.
David Abeles, CEO, TaylorMade Golf wishes our Staff Ambassadors a successful tournament.
TaylorMade is proud to support our numerous PGA Professionals who qualified for this year’s event. To give our players the best opportunity to perform at Turning Stone, the TaylorMade Tour Truck has been on-site and fully stocked to handle any equipment adjustments and get our PGA Pros dialed in before Sunday’s starting tee times. You can follow along with the tournament leaderboard or turn on Golf Channel to catch the action from Turning Stone. (TV schedule and things to know)
