Hole 12 at Oakmont Country Club is a long par 5 that plays 667 yards from the championship tees. It's a slight dogleg right, with an approximate fairway width of 45 yards and no water hazards in play. The green area measures 10717 square feet and is guarded by 12 bunkers, 4% of which are greenside.

In the summer months, temperatures can be hot but breezy conditions may help keep golfers cool on this long hole. In the winter months, weather conditions can range from cold to mild depending on the day so players should adjust their ball flight accordingly based on wind direction and speed. As for other seasons, spring tends to bring rain while fall brings cooler temperatures with less wind than summer months.

From the championship tees it will take two solid shots to reach this green in regulation; most players will need a driver off the tee followed by a mid-iron into the green if playing conservatively or even an extra wood shot if looking for more aggressive approach options as there is plenty of room down either side of this fairway due its wide dimensions. Players should also consider using their pitching wedge for approaches within 120 yards as they have been hitting it 140 yards with their 7 iron during practice rounds leading up to competition days.
