15TH HOLE LOCATION: The people have spoken. They want to see the flag on the 181-yard 15th hole at Oak Hill next to the water.
The PGA Championship tried to get fans involved this year by allowing them to choose the hole location on the 15th hole for the final round. They were given four choices, with Jack Nicklaus providing input on the differences in strategy of the four choices.
The PGA of America said more than 92,000 votes were cast on its website, Facebook and Twitter over the last 19 days.
The winner was “Hole Location C,” which will be 25 yards on and 4 yards from the water on the right.
Nicklaus, who won the PGA at Oak Hill in 1980, approved of the selection. In fact, he went online and voted for “C” himself.
“Now, if I was in the field, I would look at a hole location like Option C and think, `No, no, no.’ I would likely stay away from going at that,” Nicklaus said. “Because Option C is the closest to the water, it’s probably the most dangerous of the hole locations, especially if a player is trying to get it close. But that hole also gives a player an option if he wants to play conservatively, because there is plenty of room short left.”
RORY’S CHIP: Rory McIlroy’s chip-in for birdie on the final hole was reminiscent of another great shot on the 18th at Oak Hill. Corey Pavin chipped in for birdie in the final fourballs match Saturday afternoon in the 1995 Ryder Cup that gave him and Loren Roberts a 1-up win over Nick Faldo and Bernhard Langer. More importantly, it gave the Americans a 9-7 lead going into Sunday singles.
McIlroy is a great student of golf history, though that’s one Ryder Cup highlight the 24-year-old from Northern Ireland has never seen.
Someone recommended he should watch it, and McIlroy turned and smiled.
“Who won that Ryder Cup, anyway?” he said.
Europe won the singles session and rallied to win the Ryder Cup.
STRICKER HANGS IN THERE: Fifteen years after he first contended for a major, Steve Stricker has another chance in semi-retirement.
