Hole 2 at Oakmont Country Club is a 340-yard par 4 with a slight dogleg right. From the championship tees, this hole has a handicap of 7 and plays moderately difficult. The fairway width is 38 yards wide, giving golfers plenty of room to hit their tee shots off the tee. The green area measures 10072 sq ft and there are 13 bunkers on the course, 5% of which are greenside bunkers. This hole can be played in different ways depending on weather conditions across all four seasons: during summer months, when temperatures are warm and altitude low, players may find that their ball flight carries farther than usual; during fall months, when temperature cools down and wind picks up slightly more often, it might be wise to play conservatively off the tee; during winter months when cold air affects ball flight distance significantly shorter than usual; finally spring season brings milder temperatures but also occasional gusty winds which could cause extra challenge for golfers approaching this hole. Depending on your skill level you'll need anywhere from driver (217 yards) to pitching wedge (120 yards) for both your tee shot as well as second shot approach into this green.

Club Recommendations

Playing Tips:

1. During summer months, be sure to take advantage of the warm temperatures and use a driver off the tee for maximum distance.

2. During fall months, play conservatively with an iron or fairway wood off the tee to stay in bounds and avoid bunkers.

3. In winter months, adjust your club selection accordingly as cold air affects ball flight distance significantly shorter than usual; consider using a hybrid or long iron off the tee instead of a driver for more control over your shot direction and accuracy into this green area that measures 10072 sq ft.

4. Finally during spring season when gusty winds could cause extra challenge, make sure you factor wind directions into your strategy as well as club selection - aiming slightly right side of center line might be beneficial in order to keep ball away from greenside bunkers that are located on right side of this hole's fairway width which is 38 yards wide only!
