The words Firestone South can conjure up fond memories for many golf fans. Few will forget Jack Nicklaus's magnificent comeback in the 1975 PGA Championship. Down by five strokes to Bruce Crampton, Nicklaus made an unbelievable par on the "Monster" 16th hole. He continued to his comeback to win by four strokes, collecting his 4th PGA Championship.
A more recent memory might be from the 2000 World Golf Championship - NEC Invitational, where Tiger Woods hit the now-famous "Shot in the Dark" on the 18th hole to secure his victory in the event. One of the longest par 5's on the PGA Tour, Firestone's 16th hole is a beautiful tree-lined and narrow par--5 that plays mostly downhill. Bert Way designed Firestone's South Course in 1929. It was, for decades, a regular stop on the PGA tour and has hosted numerous major championships.
