Baltusrol Golf Club Hole by Hole Guide: Hole 10

Hole 10 - Par 4 - 460 yards

The back nine starts with a tough par-4 where four is a great score.

The tee shot cannot be leaked otherwise the creek will come into play and a penalty shot will be accrued.

The bunker down the left narrows the fairway severely so a pulled drive will find sand for all but the longest of hitters.

The green is raised with a narrow entrance with two huge bunkers short right and left that will catch anything mis-hit.

There's also a bunker back-left which will catch pulled iron shots as the green runs away from the players.

A very tricky hole that will play over-par for the week.
