The 2017 PGA Championship will be contested at Quail Hollow in Charlotte, N.C.

To celebrate the next year's final major in the Tar Heel State, the Wanamaker Trophy made an appearance at the college basketball game between the Duke Blue Devils and the Michigan State Spartans on Tuesday night at Cameron Indoor Arena in conjunction with the relaunch of remaining ticket inventory on December 1.

Duke -- No. 5 in the latest AP Ranking -- won the tilt, 78-69.

Before the game tipped off, the Wanamaker Trophy was placed on the Duke campus for students and fans to pose for photos:

 

 

ESPN college hopps analyst, and avid golfer, Jay Bilas was also sure to get in on the photo op:
