I’m not sure TV actually does it justice. So as you are watching today’s final round of The British Open at Royal Portrush, here is the tee shot the players will face on the Par-3 Sixteenth known as “Calamity Corner”. And don’t forget that the hole can play as long as 236 yards, but credit the R&A for moving the tee up for the final round as severe wind and rain is in the forecast.

And what happens if you come up short and right? I found out the hard way in 2012, as you can see below.
