The 2019 US Open Thursday pin sheet has been released for the first round during which will be played under good weather conditions on Day 1, including sunshine, 61-degree temperatures and modest wind. That weather will impact how Pebble Beach plays and how the 156-player field will approach the course. So, too, will the hole locations (pin placements) as selected by the USGA US Open Competition Committee.
2019 US Open Thursday first round pin placements
Some things to note:
- The hole location on the seventh is not a birdie pin, inviting players to play conservatively.
- The second shot to the eighth hole will require some guts to pull off over the ocean, especially with the prevailing breeze.
- The pin on No. 14 is a test of the remade green that was so controversial in 2010.
- The hole location on the 18th is the most accessible for a second shot, meaning there could be a few eagles on the day.
