The 2021 KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship tees off at Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on Thursday morning.

Southern Hills has hosted seven major championships for men, including the U.S. Open three times (1958, 1977, 2001) and four PGA Championships (1970, 1982, 1994, 2007). It is the only course to host the PGA Championship four times and will host its fifth PGA Championship in 2022.

This week, the senior players know they’re facing a serious challenge.

“The biggest challenge of Southern Hills is to keep the ball below the hole,” two-time KitchenAid Senior PGA Champion Colin Montgomerie said. “To do that, you’ve got to be in the fairway. So, it’s a complete test of golf.
