Scott Piercy found how difficult the great par-4 10th hole is a t Riviera Country Club.
The par-4 10th hole at Riviera Country Club in California is one of the most famous short par-4’s in golf. The drivable hole brings with it an alluring chance of birdie but an equally good chance of making bogey, or worse.
As Scott Piercy found out this morning during the opening round of the Northern Trust Open.
Piercy began his day at the 10th and his aggressive drive found the front green-side bunker. The narrow green doesn’t make it easy to find the putting surface and Piercy needed four bunker shots to do so. Eventually draining the 7-ft putt for double-bogey.
Piercy never recovered and carded a 9-over 80 for the day.
