In my job as a golf writer, I’ve been lucky enough to do a number of really cool things.

I’ve played 144 holes in a day; I’ve had a hole in one; I’ve teed it up alongside Jack Nicklaus, Craig Stadler and Tim Clark, but I never had the opportunity to use a caddie.

At least that is until a round at Chambers Bay, the host site of the 2015 U.S. Open, last week.

Oak Hill Country Club East Course

PITTSFORD, New York (AP) -- A hole-by-hole look at the East Course of Oak Hill Country Club, site of the 95th PGA Championship on August 8-11:

No. 1, 460 yards, par 4
A good drive will shorten this hole because of the slope at
about the 260-yard mark. That would leave a short iron at most into a fairly large green. There is out-of-bounds to the right and trees on the both sides of the fairway.
