History of the PGA Professional Championship


Begun in 1968, The PGA Professional Championship provides additional playing opportunities for PGA Professionals. The showcase event for PGA Professionals features a 312-player field representing 41 PGA Sections competing at the peak of their games, and with its 20 top finishers earning a berth in the PGA Championship. 

The National Championship was first televised live by Golf Channel in 1997 and has a potential audience of more than 110 million. 


The PGA of America was established in 1916 to promote the game of golf and enhance the careers of PGA golf professionals. Since that time, the PGA of America has grown into the world's largest working sports organization, with a staff of over 200 people daily servicing the needs of more than 28,000 men and women PGA members and apprentices. The PGA of America is not affiliated with the PGA TOUR or PGA National Resort and Spa.
