2016 PGA Championship second round hole locations, pin placements


The 2016 PGA Championship is into Day 2 at Baltusrol Golf Club and the PGA of America has released the pin sheet with the hole locations for Round 2. There is a good mix of easy, medium difficulty and difficult pin positions for these players.

Some things to note:

  • No. 4 pin is tough today, with the hole location just atop the ridge at the back of the putting surface
  • A lot of players will not like the hole location on No. 10, including Colt Knost, who tweeted about it mid-rain delay.
  • The pin on the long par-3 16th is precarious, bringing in the most bunkering on the hole and inviting a bailout with a tough two-putt
  • The hole location on the par-5 18th is the most difficult on the hole, bringing in slopes and bunkering with a poor approach
