Last year: Sung Hyun Park beat So Yeon Ryu on the second hole of a playoff at Kemper Lakes Golf Club in Kildeer, Ill., to win her second major championship. Japanese teen Nasa Hataoka dropped out of the playoff after making par on the par-4 18th.

Hazeltine’s history as a major venue: The PGA of America first held a PGA Championship at the course in 2002, when Rich Beem held off Tiger Woods to win by one shot. In 2009 the PGA Championship returned to Hazeltine with another unfortunate outcome for Woods, who lost to Y.E. Yang by three strokes. … Host of the 2016 Ryder Cup, Hazeltine will again have the honor of hosting the Ryder Cup in 2028. … The Minnesota club also hosted two U.S. Opens and two U.S. Women’s Opens.
