LOUISVILLE, Kentucky (May 18, 2024) - The 106th PGA Championship is underway at Valhalla Golf Club, and by week's end another name will be etched into the historic Wanamaker Trophy.

There are more than 30,000 PGA of America Golf Professionals, and over 20 of them are representing the PGA of America on the broadcast crews of ESPN, CBS and Sirius XM Radio as the world tunes into the second Major of the season.

End-to-end broadcast and streaming coverage across CBS Sports, ESPN, ESPN+ and Paramount+ will total over 250 hours of live and exclusive programming. Add in and fans could easily spend all week enjoying the action.

Among the broadcasters will be PGA of America Past President Suzy Whaley, PGA, and 2024 PGA of America Teacher & Coach of the Year Joe Hallett, PGA.

Whaley, a PGA Master Professional and the president of Golf Nation, will be an on-course reporter for ESPN. She’ll be walking the grounds of Valhalla Golf Club, a championship venue that carries a lot of meaning in her career.

“It’s exciting to have the chance to cover the PGA Championship from behind-the-scenes,” said Whaley. “Valhalla is special to me. In 2003, I was the first woman to qualify and compete at the PGA Professional Championship at Valhalla. This year, I look forward to sharing stories and supporting the Corebridge Financial Team of PGA of America Golf Professionals who recently qualified for this major championship through the 2024 PGA Professional Championship.”

Whaley made Association history again in 2018, becoming the first woman president of the PGA of America.

Hallet, a PGA Master Professional and the Director of Instruction at Vanderbilt Legends Club in Franklin, Tenn., also joins the ESPN broadcast to provide coaching expertise and insight.

Alongside fellow PGA of America Golf Professional Nathalie Sheehan, PGA, Hallett provides on-course commentary and highlights unique shots players face at Valhalla, as well interviewing coaches to see what select players are focusing on.

“This is such an exciting week,” said Hallett. “Great golf on a great venue. The real fun is watching the best in the world play and showing a glimpse of how they got so good, or how they hit certain shots. Our goal is to explain to viewers in a way they can improve their own games at home with some simple concepts."

A PGA of America Golf Professional for 28 years, Hallett is a GOLF Magazine Top 100 instructor and a Golf Digest Top 50 instructor, including holding the top spot in Golf Digest’s “Best Teacher in Every State” in Tennessee for seven consecutive years. He has coached some of the top LPGA players in the world, including seven-time Major Champion and LPGA Hall of Famer Inbee Park and two-time Rolex World No. 1 and 2023 US Solheim Cup Captain Stacy Lewis. Hallett was also named to the Team USA coaching staff for the 2023 Solheim Cup.

Hallet and Whaley are joined by several PGA of America Golf Professionals on the ESPN and ESPN+ crews: Gary Christian, PGA; Graham DeLaet, PGA; David Duval, PGA; Matt Every, PGA; Billy Kratzert, PGA; Andy North, PGA; Geoff Ogilvy, PGA; Steve Scott, PGA; Nathalie Sheehan, PGA; Jeff Sluman, PGA; Paul Stankowski, PGA; Curtis Strange, PGA; Scott Verplank, PGA; Mark Wilson.
