U.S. Open Hole 17 preview -- Chambers Bay, 18 holes in 18 days

BY foxsports • June 16, 2015

In the 18 days leading up to the June 18 start of the U.S. Open Golf Championship, FOX Sports.com and Golfweek will preview the Chambers Bay course -- one hole at a time.

Today’s hole: No. 17 -- Par 3, 172-218 yards

A rarity at Chambers Bay, this hole is pretty much on one level. The back right tee affords a lower start and is more demanding on the cross angle with steep sand the entire way. The more forward tee, slightly raised, provides an unimpeded view into what will likely be the more heavily defended line of hole locations, along the right side of the green.
