For Jeff Corcoran, Oak Hill's director of golf and grounds and his team, this was their opportunity to showcase not only the course, but the team's professional talents, as well.

Prior to beginning evening course maintenance on the eve of the Championship, Jeff addressed the group of more than 100 volunteers about the support Oak Hill received from the industry, specifically John Deere Golf.
I caught up with Jeff earlier that day to talk about Oak Hill's fairway mower of choice -- the John Deere 8000 E-Cut Hybrid. During our discussion Jeff told me about his relationship and the support he receives from the team at John Deere, which went far beyond Championship week.
For exampel, prior to the public release of the JD 8000 e-cut hybrid, Jeff worked closely with Tracy Lanier, John Deere Golf's product manager, to put the unit through it's paces at Oak Hill.
...
"We had a retired engineer on our staff who worked with the demo unit," Jeff says. "He did four pages of notes on the unit."
Jeff said he chuckled as he ripped the pages from the notebook and passed them on to the folks at John Deere. Myself working with iOS developers, I can tell you providing such feedback in that manner would be the last time I tested any software. However, Jeff told me John Deere is different.
"This is the best part about John Deere," he says. "Their products are tested by superintendents. They (John Deere) listen to the operators in the field and then implement things that they ask."
So what were some of the changes Jeff wanted to see from the initially prototype?
As Jeff and I looked over the JD 8000 e-cut hybrid, he pointed out the smooth tires with beveled edges along the outside.
"The initial tire that came with the prototype were more aggressive," Jeff says. With Oak Hill's height of cut between .325 to .350 they started seeing more wear than they were comfortable with. Jeff worked closely with Tracy Lanier and the team at Deere to get it just right.
...
Oak Hill has been using the John Deere 8000 e-cut hybrid now for 3 years and I asked Jeff what is overall opinion of the mower and the quality of cut was.
"We experienced the worst summer in Rochester, N.Y., this year and we have continued to maintain our fairway height of cut at .325 inches all summer," he says.

Jeff Corcoran GCSAA Class A member Oak Hill Country Club
Oak Hill Country Club Manager of Golf Courses and Grounds Jeff Corcoran says there is nothing tricky about its East Course, site of the 2013 PGA Championship, Aug. 8-11, in Rochester, N.Y.
But he is quick to point out that pinched-in fairways and thick rough can be enough to spook even the world's top golfers.
...
Corcoran, who earned an associate's degree from SUNY-Cobleskill in 1993 and a bachelor's degree from Penn State in 1995, is well-versed in the lore and nuances of Oak Hill. Although he turned 40 in May, he has been on the scene for nearly 20 years as an intern, assistant and now head superintendent (he was the superintendent at Weston [Conn.] Golf Club from 2000-2003). He has been in charge of maintenance operations at Oak Hill since 2003.
...
"I think the tournament could turn on the last four holes," Corcoran says. "Nos. 15, 17 and 18 will be tough, but No. 16 is a scoring opportunity. So how they approach them will be important. There is opportunity, but there is also risk."
