Hole 3 at Oakmont Country Club is a long and challenging par 4 that measures 428 yards from the championship tees. The hole plays slightly downhill with a slight dogleg left, making it difficult to reach in two shots for most golfers. From the tee, golfers should aim towards the center of the fairway to have an optimal approach into this large green complex. With 39 yards of width in the fairway, accuracy off the tee is key here. There are 9 bunkers located throughout this hole, including 2% of greenside bunkers which can prove tricky if you’re not careful with your approach shot. Depending on weather conditions such as wind speed and direction, altitude and temperature may also impact ball flight; so be sure to factor these elements when selecting clubs off the tee or for your second shot into this green area that measures 27453 sq ft!
