A guide to the fourteenth hole at Oakmont Country Club ahead of the 2016 US Open
US Open 2016 Oakmont Country Club: Hole 14
Hole 14 – Par 4 – 358 yards
The 14th is short by modern standards and is stroke index 18.
It only requires two irons for the world’s best players however on a calm day or down breeze the Jason Days of this world will fancy their chances of driving this green. The bunker left is a good leave.
If you do hit an iron, there are 10 bunkers lining the fairway on both sides so a poor shot will be punished.
The green is harsh and slopes from right-to-left so players will have to ensure don’t leave themselves above the hole.
Despite that, at just 358 yards this hole should be a real birdie chance.
