Oakmont Country Club – Oakmont, Pennsylvania

Short and Deadly

#2 at Oakmont is a short par 4 where arguably the most challenging part of the hole is the green. On most (calm) days you’re looking to knock down a mid to long iron off the tee to get in position for your approach shot.

Caddy Advice

When I was lucky enough to play this course, one of my playing partners promptly putted his first try right off the green on what actually looked like a good putt. The caddy, unfortunately after the putt was hit, indicated the only way to actually keep that putt on the green was to putt it as if you were trying to hit it about a foot. After everyone looked on with skepticism, he demonstrated how to play the shot to perfection.
