We are just four months away from the PGA championship. So far it is looking like the event will bring a big economic boost to our area.

According to the Greater Rochester Enterprise, the PGA will bring in close to $78 million and create more than 1,000 jobs. Much of the boost will be in production, construction, service industries and real estate. News 8 and Fox Rochester are proud sponsors of the PGA championship, which runs from August 5th through the 11th at Oak Hill Country Club.
