This hole can be challenging during all four seasons due to the altitude, temperature and wind conditions in Oakmont, Pennsylvania 15139. During spring months, golfers may experience gusty winds that could affect ball flight trajectory on both the tee shot and approach shot. In summer months, higher temperatures will cause balls to travel further than usual so golfers should adjust their club selection accordingly. In fall months golfers should expect moderate temperatures with some wind but no major weather disturbances affecting playability of this hole. Lastly in winter months golfers will need to take into account colder temperatures that could potentially reduce ball speed off the clubface resulting in shorter distances traveled for each shot taken on this hole.

Given average driving distance of 217 yards for your golfer you should consider hitting driver off the tee here as it will provide them with maximum distance advantage over other players in their group who might hit shorter clubs such as 3 wood or even hybrid off the tee box instead of driver due to fear of missing fairway or hitting it too far past green location if they hit driver here. On approach shots given average iron distance 140 yards for your golfer they should aim at center-right portion of green since any shots landing slightly right side would still have chance to trickle down towards pin location while avoiding bunker located directly behind flagstick position on back-left corner portion of green surface itself making it very difficult recovery shot from there if landed inside sand trap itself instead just short or long part around its perimeter edge like mentioned before when aiming center-right section initially upon initial impact point near putting surface overall speaking strategically wise here anyways .

Club Recommendations

Overall, the best playing tips for this hole are to hit driver off the tee and aim slightly right of center on your approach shot.
