A guide to the second hole at Shinnecock Hills ahead of the 2018 US Open.
Shinnecock Hills Hole By Hole Guide: Hole 2
Hole 2: Par 3: 252 yards
The second hole is a brute. 252 yards, uphill into a green well protected by six bunkers, a par here is a very good score.
Lengthened by 26 yards from the 2004 US Open, the prevailing wind helps the players but correct clubbing will be crucial. Too long and a tough chip down the green will be the result. Too short and the small uphill slope at the front of the green will gather players balls.
