Port Royals nightmare 16th

RSS

SOUTHHAMPTON, Bermuda – A new wind greeted players for the final round of the PGA Grand Slam of Golf, particularly favorable for the seaside 16th hole, a par 3 that played mercifully downwind for the final turn.

The fourball played the hole in 1 under on Wednesday, thanks to winner Ernie Els’ tumbling 35 footer for birdie. For the two days the Grand Slam group played the hole in 1 under but Graeme McDowell was quick to warn anyone who would dismiss the 230 yards of watery fear.

“I’d like to see a full field play that 16th today,” McDowell said. “It would be a nightmare with about eight groups backed up on that tee.”
