TOUGHEST HOLE IN GOLF - 2013

  •  

    Will take an incredibly hard hole to beat the 18th at Merion in 2013.

    Not a single birdie on the weekend and was averaging something like 4.75 +  ...  OUCH !

  •  

    Just had a look at the official stats and No.5 also averaged 4.7+ ... DOUBLE OUCH !

  •  

    That takes Merion off of my 'bucket list". Golf is supposed to be fun. Those holes look like torture.

    The member tees at Merion are a bit less daunting...

    Have to imagine the members tees are a little bit easier...

    Would certainly hope so !!!

    Would have been a fantastic experience to play it as set up for the Open just to see how tough it really was.

    Heard that a couple of fairways had been moved along with some bunkers so wonder whether they change it all back to the way it was before the open.
