PGA Championship Edition

1. Atypical tourist
The privilege, nay, the honor, of planting the flags before Thursday morning’s round was bestowed upon John Reid, assistant greenkeeper of The Duke’s, St. Andrews.

2. Beauty shot
While taking shelter from the rain (L to R) Brandon Wildt, Chicago GC; Brandon Bannow, Lakewood Estates CC, Lake Geneva, Wis.; David Blair, Quail Hollow CC, Charlotte, N.C.; Brandon Hicks, Quail Hollow CC; Joe Schneider, Maple Meadows GC, Wood Dale, Ill.; and Graeme Roberts, Camberley (Surrey, United Kingdom) Heath GC, pose for a photo.

3. Hitchin’ a hayride
There were bunker rakes galore on this hayride as volunteers ride to work on some of Whistling Straits’ more than 1,000 bunkers.

4. Mow-torhead
Precision is key when it comes to major tournaments. The second cut at the PGA Championship was maintained with four staggered mowers.

5. Leisure reading
Fresh-off a mid-morning nap and while waiting for dinner to be served, this crew member escapes into a Golfdom magazine.

6. On parade
The traditional evening maintenance cart parade takes a brief pause to listen to directions. We’re pretty sure they were being asked who wanted ice cream.

7. Lakeside view
Rising early can pay off, like this view we got of the Jacobsen fairway mowers on the Lake Michigan-neighboring hole No. 8.
