A guide to the second hole on Baltusrol Golf Club's Lower Course which hosts the 98th USPGA Championship
Baltusrol Golf Club Hole by Hole Guide: Hole 2
Hole 2 – Par 4 – 378 yards
The second is a great birdie chance for the players who will be keeping the driver in the bag here.
The hole has 12 bunkers on it, but if played well they shouldn’t come in to play.
Cross bunkers at 275 yards and out of bounds left mean it will be a long iron for the big boys and nothing more than a 3-wood for the shorter hitters.
You need to stay left of the large fairway bunker down the right and from there it’s a wedge in.
The green is protected by no less than eight bunkers – six running down the right and two left.
It’s a fairly large target to hit and anyone that makes par will be losing half a shot to the leaders.
