Behind the scenes look at the PGA tournament

BENTON HARBOR, Mich. -- Ever wondered what it takes to put a golf tournament on TV?

The Golf Channel gave a behind-the-scenes tour at the Harbor Shores Golf Club.

More than 30 cameras are rolling at all times and has more than 60 miles of cords that run along the course.

"If you were to go to an average college football game you'd have on television truck, due to the size and complexity of golf it takes three trucks tied together to make that one," Golf Channel's Ken Carpenter said.

Hosting the tournament has been difficult for the channel because of the holes on the course are spread so far apart that they have more than 100 people working at all times.
