A guide to hole 16 at Whistling Straits, called Endless Bite.
Whistling Straits hole by hole - Endless Bite / 569 yards / Par 5
Although this hole is a par 5 there is still no let up from what is a brutal four-hole stretch to finish. The more confident players will believe they can find the surface in two but you need to ensure that your ball does not waver to the right on the prevailing breeze. A huge cluster of bunkers are located in the driving areas that will make it difficult to find this green in three if found.
The green sits atop a slope that increases the length of this hole even more. Any player not sure they have the distance can bail out right but will still not find an easy chip to an undulating green. Brave players will get rewarded on this hole, but if their execution is not perfect they will be severely punished.
Justin Leonard will have less than fond memories of 16 after his final round lapse at the 2004 USPGA Championship. The American bogeyed three of the final five holes, including missing a par putt from five feet on this hole, meaning a play-off spot against Chris DiMarco and Vijay Singh would decide the winner. Singh would go on to lift the Wanamaker Trophy, despite the fact he hadn't made a birdie all day.
