Chris Stein, Head Golf Professional -
45 yards has been added to this hole to bring the only fairway bunker on the course into play. The fairway bunker has been brought in to the right 5 paces. The rough has been moved further left in front and beyond the bunker which will allow tee shots to have more of a chance to roll into the bunker. The second shot will play a little shorter as it is slightly downhill and usually down wind. There is a false front on this green and ideally you want to be just short of any hole location which will give you an uphill putt.
Pat Finlen, Director of Golf Maintenance Operations - Since the U.S. Amateur in 2007, two new rear tees have been added to the sixth hole. With a tight shoot from the back tee, the fairway bunker on the left will now be in play. The fairway bunker has been repositioned further right into the fairway with a width of only 25 yards between the bunker and the right edge of the fairway. The bunker has also been deepened to make it much tougher to have a shot from the bunker hold the green. The fairway has also been narrowed before and after the bunker to a width of 31 yards. Bleachers will be installed left and rear of the green.
