with Milton and Campbell Counties in 1932. That's why it has such an unusual,
shape. Of Georgia's 159 counties, Fulton County was the 144th to be

Atlanta Athletic Club to join exclusive list with 2011 PGA

The Atlanta Athletic Club in Johns Creek, Ga., will become
only the fifth club in the United States to have hosted at least three
PGA Championships when the 93rd edition of the season's final major
is staged at the renowned club founded by the legendary Bobby Jones.

JOHNS CREEK, Ga. -- The PGA of America's selection of The Atlanta
Athletic Club as the site of the 93rd PGA Championship August 2011
will elevate the renowned venue to another historical perch when
the season's final major is contested Aug. 8-14, 2011.

The Atlanta Athletic Club will become one of only five clubs in the
United States to have hosted at least three PGA Championships,
having previously conducted the Association's premier event in
1981 and 2001. The Atlanta Athletic Club also was the site of the 1976
U.S. Open.

In August 2011, The Atlanta Athletic Club will join four other storied
venues to have hosted three or more PGA Championships: Southern
Hills Country Club of Tulsa, Okla.; Oakland Hills Country Club of
Bloomfield Township, Mich.; Oakmont (Pa.) Country Club;  and
Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio.

Regional preparations have already begun in earnest for the 2011
Championship. A Championship office has been established at
The Atlanta Athletic Club and The PGA of America is represented
by Championship Director Ryan Cannon.

Cannon and his staff, joined by a large contingency of Atlanta
Athletic Club members represented by General Chairman
Tom Adderhold, and many state and local government agencies
and officials will be working between now and August 2011 to ensure
that the Atlanta Athletic Club and the entire region are prepared to
welcome 156 of the best players in the world in the PGA Championship.

"We are very excited to be back at the Atlanta Athletic Club, in the City
of Johns Creek, and the State of Georgia," Cannon said. "Working together
we will ensure that the 93rd PGA Championship will be a resounding success."

The PGA Championship is one of four premier golf events conducted by
The PGA of America. Others include the Ryder Cup, the Senior PGA
Championship and the PGA Grand Slam of Golf, which brings together
the winners of golf's four major championships.

Golf's best professionals have been competing for more than 90 years
for the Championship's coveted Wanamaker Trophy. Past Champions
span both the legendary and recent stars of the game: Walter Hagen,
Gene Sarazen, Byron Nelson, Sam Snead, Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods,
Vijay Singh and Phil Mickelson.

About The PGA of America

Since 1916, The PGA of America's mission has been twofold: to
establish and elevate the standards of the profession and to grow
interest and participation in the game of golf.

By establishing and elevating the standards of the golf profession
through world-class education, career services, marketing and
research programs, the Association enables PGA Professionals to
maximize their performance in their respective career paths and
showcases them as experts in the game and in the multi-billion-dollar
golf industry.

By creating and delivering dramatic world-class championships and
exciting and enjoyable golf promotions that are viewed as the best
of their class in the golf industry, The PGA of America elevates
the public's interest in the game, the desire to play more golf, and
ensures accessibility to the game for everyone, everywhere.
The PGA of America brand represents the very best in golf.

About the Atlanta Athletic Club

With the hosting of The 93rd PGA Championship, the Atlanta
Athletic Club continues its tradition of hosting major championships.
Founded in 1898 and the home club of golf hero Bobby Jones,
the AAC is the only club in the southeast to have hosted both men's
and women's U.S. Opens, as well as two previous PGA Championships.

The club's history of developing young players into champion golfers
is legendary. From the most famous in Bobby Jones, to Charlie Yates,
Tommy Barnes, Charlie Harrison, Dot Kirby and Martha Kirouac, to
modern day players like Justin Bolli and Scott Dunlap, who are on
the Nationwide Tour. The club's focus on golf, and its two challenging
golf courses recently redesigned by Rees Jones, demonstrate the club's
commitment to the players and the business of golf.

The best players in the world will face a vastly improved Highlands
golf course in August of 2011. A new cultivar of grass called Champion
bermuda has been planted on the greens and the fairways have been
changed to Diamond zoysia; a combination surely to please the players
for the Season's Final Major.
