PITTSFORD, New York (AP) — The PGA Championship is returning to Oak Hill in 2023 for the fourth time.

Jason Dufner won the PGA Championship when it was held two years ago at Oak Hill. Shaun Micheel won the previous time in 2003 when he hit 7-iron within inches on the final hole to secure what turned out to be the only win of his career.

SHEBOYGAN, Wisconsin (Genaro Armas/AP) — Perhaps the shiftiest sand trap in recent major history is now covered up by a hospitality area.

The “Dustin Johnson bunker” will be a memory when the PGA Championship returns this week to Whistling Straits in Wisconsin for the first time in five years.

But countless other sandy areas at the links-style course overlooking Lake Michigan remain hazards — or are they?

SHEBOYGAN, Wisconsin (AP) — A hole-by-hole look at Whistling Straits, site of the 97th PGA Championship to be played August 13-16:

No. 1, 408 Yards, Par 4 (Outward Bound)
A gentle start to the championship, with a slight dogleg to the left. Tee shots down the left side flirt with a series of bunkers and dunes, while the right side creates a longer approach from the rough. Deep bunkers protect the green left and long.

No. 2, 593 Yards, Par 5 (Cross Country)
Tee shot should be down the left side to avoid a blind second shot. To reach the green in two, players will have to clear a deep pot bunker 35 yards short of the green. A layup still requires a wedge to a slightly uphill, narrow green guarded by deep bunkers to the left and a large swale to the right.

KIAWAH ISLAND, South Carolina (Pete Iacobelli/AP) — The PGA Championship is returning to the Ocean Course in 2021, three decades after the seaside layout made its debut at the 1991 Ryder Cup.

This will be the second time Pete Dye’s course has hosted golf’s final major — in 2012 Rory McIlroy won by eight shots.

The course was commissioned specifically for the Ryder Cup, and Bernhard Langer’s missed par putt lifted the U.S. to victory in the “War at the Shore.”
