Get the Full, Tee-to-Green Experience

The PGA Championship app has a wealth of exciting content you won’t find on commercial broadcasts, including exclusive Marquee Group live video, which follows a different set of select players through their round each day. If you’re hoping to catch an ace this year, check out the live feeds set up to catch the Par 3 action as it falls. The app delivers additional behind-the-scenes content, providing an exclusive insider’s look at all the championship activity.

Read updated news articles, enjoy breathtaking slideshows and watch the Par 3 live video without missing a shot.

Make Your Own Course Notes

It's difficult to fully appreciate a course until you've been there, so before the championship begins take some time to “walk” Valhalla Golf Club. Your private tour of the course includes a virtual flyover of every hole so you can see the changes they’ve made since the last PGA Championship was held here in 2000.

Take time to compare some of Valhalla’s most difficult holes, including No. 3 "Floyd's Fork," No. 6 "The Bear," and No. 12 "Odin's Revenge." Hole No. 9 "The Rise," should also be challenging, presenting a 415-yard uphill battle to the tee, bordered by a phalanx of twisting bunkers on either side.

Participate in Sunday's Rounds

Armchair golfers will be able to vote on the hole location for Valhalla’s 510-yard, par-4 No. 16 hole for the championship’s final round on Sunday. While you’re watching the championship on the PGA Championship app, just follow the prompts when they appear on your Samsung TV. Use your remote or Galaxy device to make your selection during the live telecast without missing a second of the action.
