Need help cannot think of a course

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Someone asked me today about a specific hole on a course and was wondering what course it was but my mind is drawing a blank.

 

my description is i believe it was played pretty recent at either the US open or PGA championship cannot remember though. Basically the hole im questioning has a HUGE slope before the green where if you hit it anywhere near the front of the green it will go all the way back down the fairway to the bottom of the  fairway. This is a very steep slow if i remember correctly can someone help with this as its driving me crazy!

Hmm, well there's a hole like that at Pebble (15 or 16?) but the slope they were having trouble with was at the back of the green.

I know you said it's not Pebble but the 14th hole is that way.  If you don't hit it on the top portion of the green, the ball will roll all the way back into the fairway and usually in front of the bunker giving the player very little chance of going at the pin.  The other hole is #9 at Augusta, approach shot too short with a little spin and it's back into the fairway it goes.

It was the 13th hole at Torrey Pines, where Phil Mickelson managed a 9 in the 2008 U.S. Open.
