A guide to the fourth hole at Oakmont Country Club ahead of the 2016 US Open
US Open 2016 Oakmont Country Club: Hole 4
Hole 4 – Par 5 – 609 yards
The first par-5 at Oakmont is a long one, and just like most of the holes on the course there’s sand everywhere.
The Church Pews bunker once again comes into play off the tee so don’t go left, and you’ll be lucky to avoid sand if you go right as well. The bunkers are very deep and so is the thick rough surrounding them.
This slight dogleg to the right is only reachable for the big hitters on a calm day, and most will play it as a three-shotter.
The green is heavily guarded by sand but with just a small wedge in hand those who play the hole well should make a four.
