  • Merion Hole 1 Preview on WGT

    07 May 2013

    Merion Golf Club is hosting the 2013 U.S. Open Championship, and is now available to play free online on World Golf Tour (WGT).

    Hole 1 at Merion is one of golf's great opening tee shots, right next to the clubhouse patio for some extra pressure. It's a shorter dogleg right par-4, about 350 yards, but the sycamore tree on the right will discourage most big-hitters from trying to drive the green. A more conservative drive and an accurate approach shot will avoid the bunkers and could yield an opening birdie.

    Try it yourself! You can play Merion Hole 1 free on WGT. And stay tuned to play all 18 holes on Merion Golf Club.

    And if you haven't played WGT yet, join the millions of golfers playing virtual golf free online at wgt.com.
