No.2 512 yards
par 4

This hole normally plays as a par 5 but has always been converted to a par 4 for major championships. If the tee is stretched to 512, it should play as a tough 4. The hole sets up best for a right-to-left shot off the tee to a narrow, well-bunkered landing area. Bunkers protect the right side from 256-344 yards out. A good drive will most likely leave a mid- to long-iron shot for most players. Trees and heavy rough protect the left side of the fairway. The green is well-bunkered with plenty of slope and a number of challenging hole locations. This green was reconfigured in 2006, adding a new back-right hole location. The toughest, however, may be the front right just over the bunker. Four is a good score on any par 4 that plays over 500 yards.
