With the final round of @attproam here, thinking back the spectacular uphill par 5 6th hole. ⛰ USGA added the left fairway bunkers for the 2010 US Open to pinch the fairway. I heeded @kevinp613’s advice and went left of the bunkers and was aided by a healthy cart path bounce. @kevinp613 here does his best @michaelgreller, providing an aiming point for the green. 🎯 I missed it.
“The seventh is a little gem of a mashie shot, only 106 yards and a drop of 40 feet from tee to green. It is surrounded on three sides by the bay. There is usually a little wind blowing on this point, which gives it every natural hazard to the golfer, making this hole one of the most interesting on the links.” ~ Co-designer Jack Neville, 1917
Jack Nicklaus called the approach shot on Pebble Beach’s 8th hole the “finest” 2nd shot in all of golf. Agree. It’s also the “finest” 4th shot in all of golf.
