it's near! the final major, being played in Kohler, i've been looking forward to this one for a while.

first a couple of questions, anyone ever played there? i have a friend who did once a few years ago, i have not been. anyone going? i might try to go during one of the weekdays, but i'm on the fence about it, it's pricey.

hopefully Stricker or Kelly can win, at least put on a good showing in the home state. either way it's going to be a lot of fun to watch

What hole on the front nine would be a good hole for my buddies and I to watch tee shots on?

I got to play whistling last year. It is a really tough course when there is a lot of wind.

I think I am going to be going to the PGA on Saturday. Last time I went on Thursday and Friday, so it will be interesting to see what the weekend is like.

10! when i went to the senior open it was awesome, or 18 cuz it was fun to see where guys put their drives and what they did on their 2nd shots. sorry those arent on the front 9, but there is a par 3 along the lake that was fun to sit by, you could sit in the bleachers behind the green, probably the best place i sat by

10 sounds like it might be the way to go. Did you bring chairs or did you stand and watch from the tee box?

we brought chairs when we went sunday, but when we went to the practice round and saturday we just sat around places. there are bleachers all over and alota people just sit on the ground. but if you wanna just sit somewhere for most of the day i would say bring 3 things...lawnchairs, sun screen, and a cooler of water. we brought some, not sure if they changed it but who wants to pay 5 bux for a bottle of water?...

I'm going to my first golf event ever here on Tuesday. Any advice for me and my dad? Do you follow one player? Find a good spot and camp out there? Stay the whole time? What holes are the signature holes and what holes are a must see for walking around and looking at the course?

Tiger is playing very well today, 2 under after his first nine holes. Not playing like the same guy at Firestone last weekend.
Knowledge is good.

Anybody else watching this live online from the PGA website? These cameraman are HORRIBLE. Wow.

Tiger just shanked the club against the edge of a bunker, think that stun?

Being in sales is tough. Just when you think your day of rejections is over you end up going home to your wife for a couple more rounds.

Went today, was awesome besides the seemingly never ending fog delay. Highly recommend getting their early and sitting in the top row of the bleachers behind 16 green. Can see 2nd, 3rd, and 4th shots on 16 (par 5), tee shots on 17 (par 3), and tee shots on 11 (par 5). Overall, the best place to see shots at the whole event IMO!

If you follow Tiger, you won't really see Tiger well. No matter where you are, you'll always be four people deep behind the people who got to the hole ahead of him and waited. A LOT of people follow Tiger everywhere, but I don't think it's a very effective way to see anything. In addition, you'll never see anyone else except his playing partner.

If you want to see a lot of Tiger, I recommend leapfrogging two holes ahead of him, finding a decent spot and waiting for him to come through. Then do it again.

My preference is usually to find a good bleacher spot that can see multiple holes and stick to it and see a lot of different guys.

exactly, if you want to follow tiger, get ahead of the crowd. but what i would recomend is going with the first group, finding a good bleacher spot, and just camp out and watch all the groups go through and just follow the last group.

Also, if you are set on seeing the tournament end on the 18th green, you better get there early and have a lot of patience. Many people go there as soon as the course opens and sit for five hours, watching nothing before the FIRST group comes through. On Sunday, the 18th green bleachers will fill early. Once they are full, they don't allow anyone else to enter unless someone leaves. And, like I said earlier there's a lot less first-come, first-serve bleacher space on 18 then there was in 2004.

Went yesterday and had a great time. Spent a lot of time in the 15th hole bleachers. From there you can see the 11th green, all of 12 and all of 15. 15 was a killer on Thursday. While I sat there I saw only one birdie (Kjledsen) and 15 bogeys (including Tiger, Furyk).

We also sat in the 18th bleachers where you can see the 9th green and all of 18. Compared to 2004 the setup sucks, because they've removed about 50% of the first-come, first-serve bleacher space in favor of covered skyboxes which require a special credential. It makes for much less seating around 18 and 9.

I also watched 17 for a while, which is a great hole that kind of tucked in between the 16th green and the 18th green along the lake. It's kind of a tight area so there's usually not that many people around it.

If you really want to get close to the players, I recommend hiking out to #13 and #14. They are the furthest away, but there's rarely a large crowd out that far.

I've been there twice for the PGA and I've barely stepped foot on the front nine. I don't know why exactly, although it seemed like yesterday most of the big names started on #10. Next time, I'm going to have to make the effort to spend more time on the front nine.

We also had Champions Club passes which was awesome! Full breakfast, huge lunch (BBQ ribs!), HDTVs everywhere, air conditioning and everything was already included (including alcohol!).
