For years the PGA Championship used the tag line, “Glory’s Last Shot” and it was a fitting title for the final major of the year.

But rumor has it that Tim Finchem and crew twisted a few arms to get the PGA of America to drop the line so the FedEx Cup Playoffs wouldn’t be an afterthought.

As I have said often, the playoffs have grown to become an exciting end to the season but they are not majors.  Sorry Tim.

Here’s a great hole by hole look at Oak Hill from Golf Week’s Bradley S. Klein.

It’s the last major of the season.  It’s the PGA Championship.  It’s Glory’s Last Shot.
