SIG­NA­TURE HOLE AT ERIN HILLS

-

HOLE NINE

135, 143 or 150 yards, par three In the mid­dle of a course of mon­strous length lies a gem of a short par three that, un­less the wind is howl­ing, will play no longer than a wedge shot which­ever of three tees is em­ployed.

The penalty for get­ting the shot wrong, how­ever, is po­ten­tially calami­tous with no fewer than seven deep bunkers of­fer­ing am­ple pro­tec­tion.

One of those holes where there should be plenty of twos….but there will also be more than one or two fives.
