  • Pebble Beach Hole 17 Preview

    07 Mar 2013

    Pebble Beach is America's top-ranked and most famous golf course. The famed Pebble Beach Golf Links golf course is the most recent addition to World Golf Tour, now available as a free closest-to-the-hole online game.

    The famous par 3 hole 17 has a small green surrounded by bunkers, and typically shots are hit straight into the breeze coming off the ocean.

    On this hole in the 1982 U.S. Open, Tom Watson brilliantly holed out of the greenside rough with a sand wedge for a birdie. He went on to beat Jack Nicklaus that year for his only career U.S. Open title.

    The shot on World Golf Tour is from that same rough, see if you can create your own miracle shot.

    WGT Hole 17 Tip - Consider switching to a lob shot and aiming left and short.


    You can sign up for World Golf Tour here and play Pebble Beach, St Andrews and other famous golf courses free online.

  • Pebble Beach Hole 16 Preview

    05 Mar 2013

    Pebble Beach is America's top-ranked and most famous golf course. The famed Pebble Beach Golf Links golf course is the most recent addition to World Golf Tour, now available as a free closest-to-the-hole online game.

    Hole 16 is a challenging par 4, as the small green is lower than the fairway, surrounded by bunkers and trees, and sloping sharply from right to left.

    Try it for yourself on World Golf Tour, with a 177 yard approach shot from the fairway to the challenging green.

    WGT Hole 16 Tip - Aim carefully and swing with less power due to the downhill green.

    You can sign up for World Golf Tour here and play Pebble Beach, St Andrews and other famous golf courses free online.
