A guide to the fifth hole at Oakmont Country Club ahead of the 2016 US Open
US Open 2016 Oakmont Country Club: Hole 5
Hole 5 – Par 4 – 382 yards
Still no par three.
Players will need to be careful here because there are three large bunkers down the left and four smaller ones down the right.
The fairway runs out into a big wispy hollow which you then play over with your approach so it is just an iron off the tee to leave a wedge in.
The putting surface here is very tricky so accuracy is a premium with the second shot. A poor approach will do well to miss all of the five bunkers guarding the green.
