Par 3 or Far 3?
It’s not common to be thrilled with a bogey. But on No. 9 at Salem Golf Club, you’ve done good with a bogey.
In fairness -- this is a Par 4 pair of trunks that someone squeezed into a Par 3 swimsuit.
At 258 yards from the tip, scoring a three on this is as tough a task as the Greatest has asked of anyone all year.
Um, sorry. It’s also one of the reasons that it is one of final holes on this year’s Greatest 18 – Reader’s Choice.
Even the member distance of 233 yards is asking a lot for three shots.
If the distance wasn’t enough, the green complex is testy, with bunkers and drop-offs around the green and a slick putting surface on it. And there is OB lurking as well.
Enjoy the crowd out at Salem as they’re nice folks. And enjoy a bogey on No. 9.
