A guide to the fifth 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 5
Hole 5 – Par 4 – 352 yards
The fifth hole is a short par 4 where birdie is a must.
At 352 yards off the backs, it’s hard to think that they won’t be moving this tee up for at least a couple of sessions to encourage players to go for the green.
A bunker down the right will catch anything poorly struck so that must be avoided.
Ultimately, it’s all about getting the tee shot in play to somewhere where birdie is achievable, as par won’t make many halves with the level of talent on display.
