SAVANNAH, GA (WALB) - Many of golf's best are tuning up for next week's PGA Championship at the Bridgestone Invitational, Sylvester's Sonny Skinner will be getting ready for golf's final major.

Skinner has qualified for the PGA championship for a second time in three years.


Before heading to Wisconsin, Skinner is playing at the Georgia Open this weekend in Savannah.


After missing the Georgia Open last year, the River Pointe pro is glad to be included in a very good field in this year's tournament.

Sonny Skinner said. "This is one of our bigger events. I am looking forward to it. I love coming to Savannah. I think all of us do. It is a wonderful facility and it will be a great tuneup for next week."

Skinner qualified for the PGA Championship by finishing second at the PGA Professional Championship in late June.
