A preview of the 2012 PGA Championships beginning on Thursday, August 9.

The finale of the 2012 PGA Tour will tee off on Thursday, August 9 before coming to a close on Sunday, August 12 at Kiawah Island Golf Resort in South Carolina. In the 2011 PGA Championship, Keegan Bradley won his first ever major tournament while former champions like Tiger Woods, Martin Kaymer and Vijay Singh all missed the cut.

Bradley, the 2011 PGA Rookie of the Year, did not win another tournament after winning the PGA Championship until he won the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational on Sunday, just ahead of Jim Furyk and Steve Stricker.

The PGA Championship is hosted by a different location every year and will be in South Carolina for the 2012 tournament. The course will be a par 72 and a total of 7,676 yards, two strokes and over 450 yards smaller than the course in 2001 in which David Toms set the record for lowest tournament aggregate score in any major with a 265.
