Hole 3 at National Golf Links of America is a par 4 that plays 426 yards from the Pro tee and 378 yards from the Men's tee. The slight dogleg left requires accuracy off the tee as bunkers guard both sides of the fairway, with an approximate width of 47 yards. For longer hitters, there is ample room down the right side to take advantage of a draw for extra distance. With no water hazards or greenside bunkers to worry about, players can focus on attacking this generous 17504 sq ft green in two shots. Depending on wind conditions and temperature, golfers should consider using their driver ~217 yards or 7 iron ~140 yards off the tee to set up a pitching wedge ~120 yard approach shot into this large green complex.
