A guide to the third hole at Hazeltine National Golf Club in Minnesota ahead of the 41st Ryder Cup from 30th Sept - 2nd October
Hazeltine National Golf Club Course Guide: Hole 3
Hole 3 – Par 5 – 633 yards
The third at Hazeltine is a long par 5 where only the biggest of hitters will be able to reach in two.
If a three shot strategy is in place, players need to play for position.
Bunkers down the left need to be avoided, as does the rough down the right.
The real key here is to get the second shot onto the flat ground where it’s just a flick in and a great chance of birdie.
