A guide to the sixth hole at Oakmont Country Club ahead of the 2016 US Open
US Open 2016 Oakmont Country Club: Hole 6
Hole 6 – Par 3 – 194 yards
The first par-3 has arrived, and it’s a devil.
At 194 yards it will be a mid iron for most, unless the wind is in to the players’ faces.
A huge bunker guards the right side of the putting surface and from there the green slopes away from you so the left-hand bunkers will see a lot of action, in which there’s four of them.
Expect to see the majority play to the centre of the green, take two putts and walk to the next tee as quickly as possible.
