Hole 15 at Merion Golf Club (East Course) is a par 4, measuring 366 yards from the Pro tees, 353 yards from the Men's tees and 334 yards from the Women's tees. The fairway has a slight dogleg to the right with an approximate width of 36 yards. There are five bunkers on this hole; 6% of which are greenside bunkers. The green area measures 9581 sq ft and there is no water hazard in play.

In ideal weather conditions, players should be able to reach this hole with their driver off the tee shot as it plays slightly downhill for most of its length. However, depending on temperature and wind direction, using a 3-wood or hybrid may be more beneficial since accuracy will still be important when approaching this green due to its size and numerous greenside bunkers. Players who can hit their 7 iron 140 yards should have an easy wedge shot into the green while those hitting 120 yard pitching wedge shots may find themselves too close for comfort if they do not take into account how much spin they put on their approach shots due to potential backspin overshoot issues that could lead them off the back side of this large putting surface!

Club Recommendations

Playing Tips:

1. Take into account the temperature and wind direction when deciding which club to use off the tee shot. If it is cold or windy, a 3-wood or hybrid may be more beneficial than a driver for accuracy purposes.

2. Calculate your yardage with your 7 iron in order to determine how far you need to hit your approach shot in order to have an easy wedge into the green.

3. Be mindful of backspin overshoot issues that could lead you off the back side of this large putting surface if you don't take into account how much spin you put on your approach shots!
