Television did no justice to just how dark it was at Valhalla as play ended in the PGA Championship on Sunday. It's a good thing too, because based on this picture folks at home wouldn't have seen anything.

Just how dark was it as play finished in the final round of the PGA Championship on Sunday?

This incredible picture tweeted out by Brett Sterba, PGA of America Tournament Director for the 2014 PGA Championship and 2016 Ryder Cup, gives us a glimpse:

As you probably heard on the telecast many times, it was much darker at Valhalla than what we were actually seeing through the camera lens. Did you ever think it was as dark as Sterba's picture though?

Thank goodness for technology, or we wouldn't have seen anything.
