Golf on the rise locally after PGA tournament

Posted: Updated:
 LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- More people are teeing up in Louisville than ever before and many say it's because of the recent PGA Championship at Valhalla. Local pros say anytime there's a tournament at Valhalla -- courses are twice as busy.

"With the PGA being here this August, it's really brought out an amazing number of people," said golf instructor Greg Graham. "It's almost like there's a renewed interest in golf."

Golfers are hoping people follow through with their game and stick with the sport.

"It requires perseverance to stay with it, it's difficult to get started, but it's becoming easier and easier all the time and it's an open door for anyone who would like to play."
