PINEHURST, N.C. — Pinehurst’s No. 2 course will be set up the same way for both U.S. opens it will host later this year.
U.S. Golf Association Executive Director Mike Davis said Saturday that the par-70 course will play at about 7,500 yards for the men’s Open and about 6,700 yards for the women.
“On a given hole, if the men are hitting drivers, we want to see the women hit drivers,” he said during the USGA’s annual meeting. “If the men are hitting 6- to 8-irons for approach shots, that’s what we want to see the women do.”
