Ogle gave us his favorite spots to watch tournament play, including Hole 13 and 14 and Hole 7 and 8. He said several grandstand bleachers are free to use across the golf course.

Here are four more tips from Ogle to help you get the most out of your PGA Championship experience.

Spectators are encouraged to cheer and clap in response to great play but unsolicited and consistent calls from the gallery toward players and others are prohibited. A Championship Marshal will raise their arms to signal when spectators must remain quiet and when you are moving around the tournament grounds you must walk. Running is considered unacceptable behavior.

"If you are in doubt, look around at the in the crowd and take your cues from them," Ogle said. "We also ask that you stay behind the gallery ropes and cooperate with instructions given by Championship Marshals."

This is a rule that has changed since the tournament was last held in Louisville in 2014. The short answer is "yes," you can bring a mobile device but it must be kept in "silent mode" at all times. The camera flash must be turned off and if you need to receive or make a phone call you must be further than 100 yards from the competition.

During Championship Rounds (Thursday, May 16 to Sunday, May 19), photography, audio, and video recording is prohibited anywhere within 100 yards of competition or when requested by players, caddies, marshalls, volunteers, security, or Championship staff and officials.

Complimentary portable phone charges will be available to all spectators and phone charging stations can be found at the Main Entrance, 7th Green, 10th Fairway, 13th Fairway, and inside Club Magenta at the 10th Tee.

First and foremost, dress for the weather. That means lightweight clothing if it's sunny and hot or a water-resistant jacket and footwear if it's rainy during tournament play.
