The PGA Championship has enlisted Chicago-based Edelman sports PR unit Matter to handle the 2015 PGA Championship in Kohler, Wis.
Matter, which worked PR for the 2012 Ryder Cup in Medinah, Ill., will tackle media relations management, social media activation, PR counsel, partnership assistance and strategic planning for the Aug. 10-16, 2015 event at Whistling Straits.
