European Tour playing its shortest-ever par 3 at the Made in Denmark

shortest par 3 in golf


Everyone loves a good short par 3, but the European Tour outdid themselves on Sunday for the final round of the Made in Denmark tournament.

The 16th hole at Himmerland Golf and Resort Spa played just 79 yards for Round 4, making it the shorted par 3 in the tour's history.

The PGA Tour doesn't routinely keep statistics on the shortest and longest holes on tour in each round, but the seventh hole at Pebble Beach Golf Links is the shortest hole on the PGA Tour each year, playing at just 106 yards for the pros.

In this year's AT&T Bryon Nelson, torrential rains forced tournament officials to convert the par-4 14th at TPC Four Seasons in Irving, Texas, into a 100-yard par 3 for a round. Gary Woodland made an ace on the hole.
