Fans To Vote Hole Location in Final Round at Oak Hill
Golf fans will be given the opportunity to get very much involved in the course set-up for the final round of the PGA Championship next month.
In a unique move by the PGA of America, an online vote was opened Tuesday on the official PGA.com website, which will be used to decide the pin position on the par-three 15th hole at Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, New York.
Fans will be able to vote for one of four hole locations in a programme entitled “PGA Championship Pick the Hole Location Challenge Hosted by Jack Nicklaus.”
The 181-yard 15th hole plays downhill and shorter than its yardage, however the target is a narrow green with water on the right and two deep bunkers skulking off to the left looking for trouble.
Nicklaus will also provide his own insight on the four pin placements available, and the poll will close the day before the final round on 11 August.
Rory McIlroy will be defending the title he claimed by a record eight-shot margin at Kiawah Island last year, so be sure to keep up to date with all things PGA Championship right here at Onlinegolf.
