Implant site of pacemaker

I've had my pacemaker for about 3 months.  It's very prominenent under my left clavicle.  I'm thin and athletic.  Was this the best spot to put it?  A friend of mine has his deeper and lower under the pectoralis muscle.  When I lie on my side it pinches sometimes. Also I feel it during my golf swing sometimes.  Is this the most common site; just under the clavicle?  Why do you think the MD chose that spot over the other?

Thanks,  Adrian
