Pros react to the crazy 288-yard par 3 at Oakmont

While there are treacherous hazards all around the Oakmont golf course, the pros have a bone to pick with one of the longest par 3’s on Tour.

When you think of a par 3 you might imagine grabbing your 7 iron or maybe even a hybrid out of your golf bag, but in no way shape or form do you think of pulling out your driver. That’s what the pros are doing on this drive-able par 3 on hole 8 this week.

Webb Simpson took this picture that shows what everyone is thinking.

Par 3’s should not be drive-able!! Just another thing to add to the list of crazy conditions at this years U.S. Open. May the odds be ever in your favor!
