PGA Championship: The 15th hole is playing at just 131 yards for the second round at Oak Hill
While the scorecard yardage of the 15th hole at Oak Hill Country Club reads 155 yards, in the second round of the 2023 PGA Championship, the hole called “The Plateau” is only playing to 131 yards.
For pros, that’s a gap wedge, maybe a pitching wedge at the most, but with a hole location on Friday cut just 3 yards from the right edge of the putting surface and only 3 yards from the front, there is little room for error.
Tee shots that come up short risk finding one of the two spectacle bunkers, and a miss to the right will bounce downhill and find a tightly-mowed chipping area.
The hole played as the easiest par 3 on the course in the first round, and birdies will be made on it again Friday, but hitting it close will not be easy as the wind freshens throughout the day.
