Baltusrol Golf Club Hole by Hole Guide: Hole 14

Hole 14 - Par 4 - 430 yards

This slight dogleg-left played as the second-easiest hole at the 2005 USPGA.

The long hitters will be able to take it over the two bunkers on the left which will cut the corner and leave just a mere flick in.

Shorter hitters will opt to play right of the bunkers to leave a longer second shot in which will also be slightly blind.

The green is heavily bunkered with five large traps surrounding the putting surface so any poor approaches will be punished.

However they shouldn't come into play and you can expect this to be one of the easiest holes once again.
