PGA Of America President Ted Bishop Transforming Position Into One Of Change

PIN PALS: The PGA of America is allowing fans to pick the hole location on the 15th green during the final round of the PGA Championship at Oak Hill Country Club next month, and Bevacqua said the "minute we started talking about it, we all looked at one another and just loved the idea." JACK NICKLAUS was asked to help develop the four possible pin locations, and Bevacqua said to "hear Jack's reaction and how excited he became about it, that just took it to a whole other level." Bevacqua: "That initial conversation we had with Jack, he was like, 'Well, why don’t we do it for all 18 holes,' and we said, 'Well, that's obviously a little bit farther than we want to go.'" Bevacqua said the idea has "been favorably received so we're excited about it" ("Morning Drive," Golf Channel, 7/26).
