Greenskeepers restore damaged hole at PGA Championship

PGA officials

There was a brief delay on the 12th hole during the final round of the PGA Championship in St. Louis on Sunday as the greenskeepers had to fix the cup.

Gary Woodland nearly holed out on his approach on the par 4, 452-yard 12th hole. He apparently did a lot of damage to the hole with his shot, which led officials to come out and do some repair work.

According to CBS, the officials had to reset the hole and even repaint the side of it because the entire side caved in.

Woodland, who was paired with Tiger Woods, birdied the hole. Tiger also birdied the hole to improve to four under for the round and inch closer to leader Brooks Koepka.

The delay due to the surface needing repair reminded many fans of what happened in the Big Ten Championship Game last year.
