PGA Letting Fans Vote for a Hole Location at PGA Championship

By July 23, 2013

Follow me on:

Would you like to have a part in determining the hole location on the 15th hole at Oak Hill Country Club during the final round of the 2013 PGA Championship?

If you answered yes, well, you're in luck. The PGA of America has set up a website - picktheholechallenge.pga.com - where golf fans can vote on one of four hole locations to use during the final round.

The PGA has given this balloting the mouthful of a title, "PGA Championship Pick the Hole Location Challenge Hosted by Jack Nicklaus." Go to the website, and you can watch a video in which Nicklaus and a PGA official discuss what's involved in selecing pin placements, and the different strategies and considerations involved in weighing potential placements against one another.

PGA president Ted Bishop says the voting is "part of a new era of engagement" for the PGA Championship. And the PGA also says it's an opportunity to educate fans about the considerations that go into course set-up, and how course set-up affects golfers' strategies and tactics.

The 15th hole at Oak Hill is the last par-3 golfers encounter, with a distance of 181 yards. The four options on which fans can vote include two where the hole is very close to a pond on the right side of the green. I'm going to predict that one of those two pin placements will wind up being the winner. If you want to vote, you have from now until Aug. 10 to do so.

I tend not to leave many responses, however I looked at a bunch of comments on PGA Letting Fans Vote for a Hole
Location at PGA Championship. I actually do have a
couple of questions for you if it’s allright. Could
it be simply me or do some of the remarks come across as if they are written by brain dead visitors?
:-P And, if you are posting at additional online sites, I would
like to keep up with everything new you have to post. Could you make a list
of every one of all your social pages like your
linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
