The PGA Tour returns to Baltusrol Golf Club for the PGA Championship this week, in Springfield, New Jersey.

The course, steeped in history, is hosting its second PGA Championship (first since 2005) and has hosted seven U.S. Opens and two U.S. Women’s Opens. It was established in 1985, designed by A. W. Tillinghast and has hosted USGA championship events since 1901.

Few people know the course better than Director of Instruction Jason Carbone. Carbone has worked at Baltusrol for seven years and joined the GOLF.com Podcast this week to break down the course, hole-by-hole.
