Lunde Leads Kodak Challenge to Hole #15 at the Wyndham Championship

Favorable Par 5 Provides Critical Scoring Opportunity for Kodak Challenge Contenders

ROCHESTER, N.Y., August 16, 2011—With just six holes remaining in the chase for the Kodak Challenge $1 million prize, Bill Lunde heads a strong field of contenders to one of the best scoring holes of the Kodak season, the par 5 15th hole at Sedgerfield Country Club during the Wyndham Championship on August 18-21.  The Wyndham Championship is the 25th of 30 tournaments to participate in the 2011 Kodak Challenge competition.

The Kodak Challenge celebrates the beautiful holes and memorable moments in golf. Golfers must play at least 18 of 30 Kodak Challenge holes throughout the season to qualify. The pro with the best Kodak Challenge score relative to par at the end of the season will win the Kodak Challenge trophy and $1 million.

17 of the top 25 Kodak Challenge contenders, including leader Bill Lunde (-15), are in the field this week at the Wyndham Championship. Lunde comes to Greensboro having led the Kodak competition for 16 consecutive tournaments dating back to the Arnold Palmer Invitational on March 25.

Eight players within four strokes the lead, headed by Cameron Tringale (-13), will be looking to close the gap on Lunde this week on the forgiving 547-yard par 5 No. 15.  In 2010, this week’s Kodak hole was the second easiest at Sedgerfield Country Club, yielding 25 eagles and 243 birdies.  No. 15 is the second-to-last par 5 on the 2011 Kodak Challenge schedule.

About the par 5, 547-yard #15 at the Wyndham Championship
The downhill tee shot must avoid a small creek on the left and a large fairway bunker on the right. Going for the green in two will require a long carry over water and deep greenside bunkering to a severe back to front sloping green.  In 2010, No. 15 was the second easiest hole on the course, yielding 25 eagles.
