Hole One

Par 4
520 yards

An ultra-demanding opening hole played as a par 5 in every previous US Open at Olympic Club, beginning a six-hole stretch that may well be the most difficult start in major-championship history.

The tee shot requires a left-to-right ball flight, and there is ample room on the downhill approach shot to bounce the ball onto the green.

Because the area around the green is closely mown, any shot that misses either long or to the right of the green will run away quickly. Thick brush to the immediate left of the green is to be seriously avoided.
