The popularity of the sport in US began to soar with the formation of the United States Golf Association in the year 1894. It was the first organization that was incepted with the sole purpose of sanctioning and looking after golf events. "Rodman Wanamaker," a rich owner of a store called a meeting of golfers from around the country. The venue for that meeting was "Wykagyl Country Club." The meeting ended with Wanamaker and everyone at the meeting deciding that the PGA was to be formed to govern the sport even better.
The Professional Golfers Association of America officially came to the scene in the second month of 1916. The first ever PGA Championship was played a few months after which was won by "Jim Barnes."

The "PGA Championship" is normally played during the month of August which makes it the last major of the year. The player who wins the tournament is entitled to special benefits.
