Sand wedge anyone?

It’s crunch time on the PGA Tour. One final opportunity to claim a Major Championship this season. Whoever lifts the Wanamaker Trophy on Sunday will have to contend with Oakland Hills…or as Ben Hogan named it, “The Monster”. It’s also the last chance to secure a position on this year’s US Ryder Cup squad. All in all there’s plenty of pressure to go around this week.

The South Course was designed by Donald Ross, who upon seeing the land said, “The Lord intended this for a golf course.” Any Ross designed course is sure to have one thing…multi-tiered greens. Find yourself on the wrong level and putting will become an adventure to say the least. Bring on the 90th PGA Championship. Visit the site for more.
