Tringale Chasing Lunde as Kodak $1 million Competition Down to Two Holes

ROCHESTER, N.Y., October 10, 2011 – Just two holes remain in the 2011 Kodak Challenge, as the $1 million competition visits hole No. 13 at the McGladrey Classic on October 13-16. 
Kodak leader Bill Lunde (-19) is not playing this week, leaving a window of opportunity for his closest competitor, Cameron Tringale (-17).  The tricky par 4 No. 13 on the Seaside Course at Sea Island, GA represents one of Tringale’s last chances to catch Lunde.

Tringale is the only remaining PGA TOUR pro within striking distance of Lunde, who has led the Kodak Challenge for 20 consecutive holes; since posting a birdie on the final hole of the Arnold Palmer Invitational on March 25.  Catching Lunde will not be easy, however.  Tringale will need to deliver an eagle on one of the two final Kodak holes, both of which are par 4s; beginning this week on the tricky No. 13 on the Seaside Course.

The McGladrey Classic is the 29th of 30 tournaments to participate in the $1 million Kodak Challenge competition. The Kodak Challenge concludes on hole No. 17 at the Children’s Miracle Network Classic on October 20-23. 

The Kodak Challenge celebrates beautiful holes and memorable moments on the PGA TOUR and challenges players to perform their best on 30 designated Kodak Challenge holes. They must play at least 18 of the 30 designated Kodak Challenge holes. The player with the lowest cumulative score on his best 18 Kodak Challenge holes will win $1 million.

About the Par 4, 408-yard Hole #13 at The Seaside Course
Golfers need to take steady aim off the tee as this dog leg left has bunkers along the entire right side of the fairway and a marsh along the left.  Depending on the wind, a driver will still leave golfers with a middle iron in to the green, which is protected by a front side bunker.
