Hazeltine National Golf Club Course Guide: Hole 14

Hole 14 - Par 4 - 448 yards

The fourteenth is a big dogleg-right par 4 that has a risk-reward element to it for the longer hitters.

The big hitters may be able to take it over the bunkers down the right with a fade which will then kick the ball down to within 100 yards of this green, otherwise it's a drive hit to the left of them.

The green entrance is really narrow, with bunkers either side, meaning that most will be trying to carry the ball to at least the middle of the green to avoid any sand.

Seven bunkers on this hole all come into play, and many players will find them, so this hole could be critical in matches and will see a some big moments.
