Fans invited to place pin at PGA Championship

The SportsXchange

Fans eager to man the flag at a major golf championship, warm up your voting hand.

The PGA Championship is inviting fans to decide where the pin should be placed on the par-3 15th hole for the final round of the Aug. 8-11 event at Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, N.Y.

The tournament specs for the downhill 15th hole: 181 yards, par-3 with a tight green with water in play on the right of the green and bunkers guarding the left side. The hole location can make putting a real challenge.

Fans are offered four options at picktheholechallenge.pga.com, where five-time PGA champion Jack Nicklaus walks through the challenges of each placement:

A) six yards from front fringe and four yards from the right fringe. Brings both the water and front left bunker into play.

B) 23 yards from the front fringe and rough and seven yards from the left fringe. Tucked closely to the middle bunker.

C) 25 yards from the front fringe and rough and four yards from right fringe and rough. Brings water hazard into play.

D) 30 yards from the front edge of the fringe and seven yards from the left fringe and rough. Plays the longest and brings the back bunker into play.
