Photos: KPMG Women’s PGA Championship at Congressional Country Club


The third major of the LPGA’s 2022 season is the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship at historic Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Maryland.

The club, which was established in 1924, has hosted several men’s majors but this will be the first women’s professional major there.

Originally designed by Deveneau Emmet, the course hosted the 1949 U.S. Junior Amateur, the 1959 U.S. Women’s Amateur, the 1964 U.S. Open, the 1976 PGA Championship, the 1995 U.S. Senior Open and the 2011 U.S. Open, which was won by Rory McIlroy.

Just ahead of the KPMG, the PGA of America, KPMG and the LPGA announced a big bump in the purse for the 2022 tournament, doubling it to $9 million.

Take a look at some of the best photos of the week.
