  • Pinehurst No. 2 Hole 18 Preview on WGT

    13 Jun 2014

    It's U.S. Open Week and play is underway at Pinehurst No. 2, so we're previewing the final holes of the famed course and host of the 2014 U.S. Open Championships.

    The fairway on the finishing hole at Pinehurst No. 2 is much narrower than it appears from the tee box. Players should avoid the deep fairway bunker that runs down the right side of the fairway and another tricky bunker that sits to the short, right side of the green. After missing his tee shot in the right rough, Payne Stewart saved par on this closing hole to win the 1999 U.S. Open.

    Play the 18th at Pinehurst No. 2 free without sign-up on WGT.

  • Pinehurst No. 2 Hole 17 Preview on WGT

    11 Jun 2014

    It's U.S. Open Week, so we're previewing the final holes of the famed Pinehurst No. 2, host of the 2014 U.S. Open Championships.

    This picturesque hole helped Payne Stewart secure his victory in the 1999 U.S. Open when he stuck his tee shot within several feet of the hole and drained his birdie putt. Proper club selection is essential in scoring well on this iconic par-3, as the green is guarded by several bunkers. Players should take enough club to avoid the fall-off in the front of this large green, and if played well this hole offers a good chance for birdie.

    Play the 17th at Pinehurst No. 2 free without sign-up on WGT.

  • Pinehurst No. 2 Hole 16 Preview on WGT

    09 Jun 2014

    We're less than a week away from the start of the 2014 U.S. Open Championships at Pinehurst No. 2, so we're previewing the final holes of this famed course.

    A well-positioned tee shot is key in scoring well on this tricky dogleg-left par-4. The hidden bunker on the left side of the fairway should be avoided when picking a landing spot for tee shots. Most approach shots to the green will feature a slight downhill lie. The front portion of the 16th green includes a pronounced back-to-front slope and putts toward a front pin placement will require a skillful touch.

    Play the 16th at Pinehurst No. 2 free without sign-up on WGT.

  • Pinehurst No. 2 Hole 15 Preview on WGT

    06 Jun 2014

    We're less than a week away from the start of the 2014 U.S. Open Championships at Pinehurst No. 2, so we're previewing the final holes of this famed course.

    This is a long and difficult par-3 for players of all skill levels. The 15th requires a well-placed tee shot to this small, crowned green bordered by a bunker on the right side. Keeping your tee shot on the green here is an achievement as most golf balls landing on the front portion of the green will make their way into a collection area. A score of 3 or better is a success on this hole.

    Play the 15th at Pinehurst No. 2 free without sign-up on WGT.
