The 16th Hole

Last week, Peter had the opportunity to play the South course of the Firestone Country Club in Akron. The South course was rated the 15th most difficult out of 52 PGA Tour golf courses  in 2010. So  this was a good test of the golf team's skills.

Of particular difficulty on the south course is the 16th hole.  At 667 yards in length, it is one of the longest par 5's in existence. The pond in front of the green adds to its difficulty.

Peter scored a bogey on the 16th hole. For those of you who are not golfers, that is pretty good. It means he got his ball in the hole with six shots. A bogey is one shot over par.

Arnold Palmer named the 16th hole "The Monster" after scoring a triple-bogey during the first PGA Championship held at the course.

The above photo of Peter and his friend Daniel was taken on the 16th hole.
