At times this summer, a mask and snorkel would have been the required equipment to slog your way around normally pristine Oak Hill rather than woods and irons.

The extreme weather that has slammed much of the northeast certainly unleashed its wrath on the home of the 2013 PGA Championship this summer, flooding the fabled course five different times, then following it up with stifling heat that quickly baked the soggy layout.

Mother Nature’s fickle ways left the Oak Hill greens “spotty” in the words of world No. 1 Tiger Woods a week ago. But outstanding work by the Oak Hill staff in the past seven days has alleviated any issues with the putting surfaces, creating an ideal stage for golf’s fourth major when the players tee off on Thursday.

“It’s ready,” 2013 Masters champ Adam Scott said after his practice round. “The ball is rolling beautifully.”
