Jeff Sluman pulled off a major upset by winning the 1988 PGA Championship here (the first played on a Pete Dye design) by three strokes over Paul Azinger. One of the signature holes on the course is No. 16, a short par 5 that played as a par 4 during that championship.

On No. 16, the split-level green should not be missed to the left as a deep bunker and creek will be waiting for errant golf balls. Take a close look at the hangman's noose in the tree next to the left of the green. The club agreed recently to remove the noose, citing the possibility that it's meaning could be misinterpreted.
