Workers at the Rochester Museum and Science Center are putting the finishing touches on an exhibit that was quite the hit back in 2003.

The PGA Championship History Exhibit opens this Friday (May 24) and runs until Labor Day weekend.

A display featuring Rory McIlroy's record-breaking win at Kiawah Island won't be available until June 3rd, when the reigning champ comes to Rochester for media day.

The exhibit traces the history of the PGA Championship and the PGA of America back to their origins in 1916. On display include artifacts including Rochester-native Walter Hagen's birth certificate, Sam Snead's hat and Tiger Woods' shoes.

The exhibit takes about 10 months of planning to set up the moving exhibit from one championship city to the next.

Since the PGA Championship was last at Oak Hill in 2003, the biggest names in golf have lifted the Wanamaker Trophy. From Roy McIlroy to Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, all have some memorabilia on hand at RMSC.
