  • 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.
