With about three weeks to go before Whistling Straits gets set to host it’s second PGA Championship, mother nature has decided to throw a twist into their preparations. So far this summer, the Sheyoygan, Wisconsin area has had 15 days with more then a tenth of an inch of rain with three of those days exceeding an inch. Then came this past Thursday. A seven hour downpour that included a tornado watch left the course under water and Seven Mile Creek into the Mississippi River.
According to the championship director, Barry Deach, constructions crews have lost only one day during the preparations for the even. The superintendent, Chris Zugel, and his crew have a lot of work on their plate after Thursday’s storm, which washed out the faces of all a couple of the 967 bunkers on the course.
