2021 PGA Championship scripting: The latest styles at Kiawah Island Resort's Ocean Course

PGA Championship Scripting — Cover
Kiawah Island (S.C.) Resort's Ocean Course is once again poised to host the PGA Championship. Last held on the oceanfront links-style course designed by Alice and Pete Dye in 2012, the PGA brings together the world's best players — and top PGA professionals.

The demanding Ocean Course, which also hosted the 1991 Ryder Cup, poses a stern challenge for the field. The multi-directional winds and subtropical climate will add add to the testy conditions, so players will need to feel as comfortable with what they’re wearing as they are choosing which club to hit. Take a look at some of the outfits you will see throughout the week.
