Behind the Scenes: Making Oak Hill Look Impeccable

Well, in a way, it does. Before the players and fans arrive, and after they leave, nearly 100 volunteers attack the course to mow grass, blow leaves and rake bunkers. But it took months of preparation to get Oak Hill up to the standards of the PGA Championship. And the course was dealt another challenge after heavy rains flooded it a month ago.
