Senior PGA Championship presented by KitchenAid is in Full Swing

We couldn't have hand-picked a better day for the second round of the Senior PGA presented by KitchenAid. The bright blue sky and warm breezy conditions made it ideal for spectators to get out and enjoy the Pete Dye Course at French Lick.

Here are some of the highlights from both on and off the course:
 
 
Germany's Bernhard Langer warms up the driving range.
The range is a good place to familiarize yourself with the players
 so you can easily spot them the rest of the day.



Nick Faldo announced that this will be his last
Senior PGA Championship presented by KitchenAid.
Come out and see the legend's final rounds.





 Colin Montgomerie, Tom Lehman & Jay Haas were definitely
crowd favorites. Lehman finished the day at an impressive four under
par and defending champ Montgomerie is just one stroke back.


Indiana Senator Luke Kenley, Lieutenant Governor Sue Ellspermann
& Steve Ferguson, Chairman of the Board of Cook Group
enjoyed the action from the Champions Club.



Thursday's leader, Massy Kuramoto held strong
with another impressive round.

 


Director of Golf Dave Harner keeps everything going
behind the scenes for the tournament.

 

Saturday's round is shaping up to have quite an international flair
with contenders from Japan, Spain, France, Germany and more.

 


The high elevation and natural beauty of Indiana
make for some amazing views. Be sure to wear
comfortable shoes; the course is 7 miles long.





When you finish on the course, you have to head down
to the Town Green for the KitchenAid Demos starting at 3 p.m.
Chef Chris Covelli is fun and entertaining as he shows you how
to make everything from roasted garlic hummus to homemade pasta.



 
The cooking demo is just the beginning of the
Rollin' into Summer Festival now through Sunday night. Just across from French Lick Springs Hotel on the Town Green you will find
live music, good food, and more.

Tickets are still available at the gate for the championship . Children under 17 get in free of charge. Also in appreciation of their service, military personnel and their families get in free with their government ID.
