The back nine starts with a 415 yard par-4, known as Eastward Ho.
Shinnecock Hills Hole By Hole Guide: Hole 10
Hole 10: Par-4: 415 yards
Measured at 415 yards, the par-4 10th plays significantly less than that because it is usually downwind, and there is a giant hill in the middle of the fairway which will carry long drives even further.
If you can get your ball to the bottom of the hill you won't have more than a wedge into the hilltop green. Alternatively, you can lay up to the top of the plateau and his a longer iron in.
The green slopes from front to back, and you have next to no shot if you go long because everything slopes way from you.
A golfer for most of his life, Sam is a Senior Staff Writer for Golf Monthly.
Working with golf gear and equipment over the last five years, Sam has quickly built outstanding knowledge and expertise on golf products ranging from drivers, to balls, to shoes.
He also loves to test golf apparel especially if it a piece that can be used just about anywhere!
As a result he has always been the one family and friends come to for buying advice and tips.
He is a graduate of Swansea University where he studied History and American Studies, and he has been a part of the Golf Monthly team since December 2017. He also previously worked for World Soccer and Rugby World magazines.
Sam now spends most of his time testing and looking after golf gear content for the website. He also oversees all Tour player content as well.
Unfortunately, Sam is not a member of any club at the moment but regularly gets out on the golf course to keep up the facade of having a handicap of five.
