Kevin Na says the par-4 11th hole at Royal Troon is like the Road Hole at St. Andrews - the hardest hole on the course.
After finding his ball lying next to a stone wall, Na decided to channel his inner “Mechanic” and use the wall to his advantage, ricocheting it onto the green.Royal Troons version of the road hole. #hole11 #royaltroon #openchampionship #titleist #WAAC
Over the years many a player has used this technique on the Road Hole, including Miguel Ángel Jiménez at the 2010 Open.
We don’t know if Na will actually use this shot in competition but it’s always good to be prepared.
