@PGAChampionship
To celebrate the next year's final major in the Tar Heel State, the Wanamaker Trophy made an appearance at Duke University's Cameron Indoor Arena on Tuesday night.

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:

 

 

Here are more photos from the Wanamaker's trip to Cameron Indoor, where it will return in February for the Duke/UNC game:

George Bryan

If you like to shoot billiards and love to play golf, you're going to enjoy this video, which incorporates the two -- nailing all the angles and the combinations.

Much like billiards, golf is a game that's all about the angles.

George Bryan -- one-half of the famous Bryan Bros. trick-shot duo -- pulled off one of the coolest golf-ball combination putts you'll ever see.

First negotiating a sweeping left-to-right putt around a small bunker in the middle of a green, Bryan then bumps a ball off a golf tee that bumps another ball off a golf tee and straight into the bottom of the cup.

Check it out:

Here's a better angle:

And, for good measure, here's our all-time favorite golf-ball combination shot -- Louis Oosthuizen's combo-shot ace off the golf ball of J.B. Holmes on No. 16 at Augusta National in the final round of the 2016 Masters:
