A guide to the fifteenth hole at Hazeltine National Golf Club in Minnesota ahead of the 41st Ryder Cup from 30th Sept - 2nd October
Hazeltine National Golf Club Course Guide: Hole 15
Hole 15 – Par 4 – 405 points
The fifteenth at Hazeltine is a par 4 that will see plenty of birdies.
For most it will be a 3 wood or hybrid and then a mere flick to the green.
The Dustin Johnsons of this world may choose to have a pop at the green if the tees are moved forward. The fairway does slope downhill so a great drive may receive a big kick on.
It ranked as 15th hardest in the 2009 USPGA and in the heat of the moment coming down the stretch at a Ryder Cup, you have to feel that par just won’t be good enough here.
