Pick the hole location at the par-3 15th for the PGA Championship

Jack Nicklaus and the PGA are running a new contest where golf fans can vote for the Sunday hole location at the par-3 15th for the upcoming PGA Championship.

Nicklaus, who won his 5th PGA Championship in 1980 at Oak Hill, the site of this year's tournament, came up with the idea.

"The chance for golf fans to interact with the PGA Championship and play a role in shaping the outcome of the final round fascinates me," Nicklaus said in a statement. "It's like being able to call the shots during the fourth quarter of the Super Bowl."

Fans will have four pin location options to choose from for the par-3 which has a pond to the right of the green and three bunkers to the left side of the green.

Voting will end after the third round of the Championship on August 10th.
