Hole 17 Go to 16

No. 17 - Lang Whang

559 Yards
Par 5


A "good whack" is required for players to have a reasonable chance of reaching the green. The hole has been stretched an additional 60 yards, with new bunkers in the layup area and a new greenside bunker challenging the second shot. The green is protected by two bunkers on the left and two on the right. This is where Tom Watson two-putted for birdie in 1977, taking a one-shot lead when Jack Nicklaus missed a 5-foot birdie putt.
