A guide to the twelfth 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 12
Hole 12 – Par 4 – 518 yards
The 12th hole is the longest par 4 on the golf course at a monstrous 518 yards that plays into the prevailing wind.
The tee shot must stay left of the bunkers to leave a long iron into the green.
The water short right only comes into play for very loose shots.
The green is guarded by two bunkers and is quite flat, so the long hitters may be able to take advantage here and win the hole with birdie 3.
