A guide to the tenth hole at Oakmont Country Club ahead of the 2016 US Open
US Open 2016 Oakmont Country Club: Hole 10
Hole 10 – 462 yards – Par 4
The tenth tee shot is a tricky one – it’s downhill and very narrow. Bunkers right and left are ready to punish anything missing the fairway.
Most players, after a good drive, will have a mid iron into this green which slopes from front-right to back-left.
Two green side bunkers protect the right side of the putting surface and there’s also a bunker front-left – a fade off this is the shot to play.
Expect to see a lot of balls at back-left on this green where two putts up the hill will be difficult but should be feasible.
