The PGA of America is conducting an internal study to determine if it would be viable to take the PGA Championship overseas sometime in the next decade, according to a Golf World report.

"This is an exercise we are going through, an analysis. It is far from a fait accompli that we are going to take the PGA Championship international," said PGA of America CEO Pete Bevacqua according to the report. "When we sat down to map our strategic plan to service our members and grow the game, the question arose as to what impact it would have to take the PGA Championship to an international location once or twice a decade."
