2016 PGA Championship third round hole locations, pin placements


The 2016 PGA Championship is into Day 3 at Baltusrol Golf Club and the PGA of America has released the pin sheet with the hole locations for Round 3. There is a good mix of easy, medium difficulty and difficult pin positions for these players.

Some things to note:

  • The tucked hole location on No. 3 is fascinating, flowing left with the dogleg left shape of the hole. But it should be hard to access.
  • After a friendly pin on the shelf on No. 4 on Friday, it's tucked on the shelf on Saturday. It's going to be tough to be aggressive.
  • No. 14 is a hard to access hole location, particularly with the sharp dogleg right nature of the hole.
  • No. 18 might invite a lot of players to get too aggressive chasing eagle, perhaps coming up short and forcing a tough up-and-down for birdie or par.
