It's been an incredible few years for PGA Professional Devin Gee.
Since 2013, Gee has been the head professional of Oakmont Country Club, one of the country's most storied golf courses, transitioning to replace a legend in Bob Ford, who has played in 10 PGA Championships and three U.S. Opens and will officially retire in October.
Gee is just the third head professional in Oakmont's 69-year history. The head pro before Ford -- Lew Worsham -- won the 1947 U.S. Open at St. Louis Country Club.
While Gee hasn't accumulated the impressive number of starts of his predecessors in major champions, he did get a little taste on Sunday, when he was a playing marker for PGA Tour player Justin Hicks.
When there's an odd number of players that make the cut in a tournament, players can take a playing marker for pace of play purposes. Gee wasn't needed for the third round. Because of the weather interruptions early in the tournament, the third round featured threesomes off two tees. When the final round went back to traditional twosomes off the first tee, Hicks was the odd man out without a playing partner.
Gee was able to step in.
Here's a look at Gee's tee shot on the first hole:
Playing markers are a common thing in professional golf. There may be none more famous, however, than amateur Jeff Knox, a member of Augusta National and the designated marker each year at the Masters when duty calls.

Only Hicks, Gee and the spectators following their twosome will know how the Oakmont professional fared, as marker's do not keep a score and typically pick up and got out of the way on an especially nasty hole.
Regardless of what he shoots, it will be a memory Gee won't soon forget.
