Playing the 16th Hole at Carnoustie

By: Golfshake Editor | Wed 11 Jul 2018

Ahead of The 147th Open Championship at the famed Carnoustie Golf Links, we are taking you onto the ground of the Championship Course to showcase the challenge that awaits the game's best players. Renowned for its testing closing trio of holes, which are set to define who lifts the Claret Jug on Sunday, the 16th, 17th and 18th combine to create what is perhaps the Greatest Finish in Golf.

Beginning with the formidable and lengthy par three 16th - which Tom Watson notably failed to par in each round of his debut victory in the 1975 Open - Golfshake's Owen Davies takes on this intimidating hole to provide you with a touch of added insight behind what to expect when this year's Championship gets under way.
