What is the PGA Championship?

The PGA Championship is a golf tournament that is sponsored by the Pro Golfers Association.  It happens every year in May and features some of the best golfers in the sport.  It's one of four major championships.  If you win the PGA tournament, you're automatically invited to join the other three.

Why are they in Rochester, NY?

The PGA tournament rotates their field every year.  So they aren't at the same course year after year.  It is normally held on the Eastern side of the United States but has been played all over.

They chose Oak Hill Country Club in Pittsford as the site for this year's tournament.  It's a course where they've held it three times before (In 1980, 2003, and 2013).

They will be playing from the 15th to the 21st.

Who is Rory McIlroy?

Rory McIlroy is one of the pros that is playing in the tournament this year.  He is a two time PGA Champion.  He's hoping to capture his fifth career major with a win at Oak Hill this week.

Rory McIlroy admits he's a Bills fan

The exciting thing for Bills fans was the interview that Rory McIlroy gave today where he not only admitted that his wife was from Rochester but that he was essentially a Bills fan.

Ok...he didn't actually come out and say that he was a Bills fan, but he did say that "It certainly makes it easier to root for the Buffalo Bills when Josh Allen’s throwing the football."

We agree Rory.  We agree.
