11 of the top 20 finishers at Worlds got a birdie on this hole in the semis.
Only 2 of the 53rd-72nd finishers at Worlds got a birdie on this hole in the semis.
what are they using for par, 4 or 5? there's no way anybody got a 2 on it, a 3 is also pretty hard to imagine.

this is a great hole, it plays up a big hill, downhill slightly, uphill again, down a big slope and then the basket is about 15 ft off the water. Pickard is one of those courses you should play if you come to Iowa. top 3 for sure

It's a 3-shot hole = a Par 5. There were no 3's in the A Pool during competition.

If the grass is cut then a roller. Otherwise blizz boss.

Pickard is rated so high but I was disappointed. Ewing is where it's at!

The one time I played this it was windy and raining a little...

But if I could throw it in 'normal' conditions I'd hopefully go Pd, Pd, Roc, Challenger and try to card a 4 but more realistically a 5. This hole is super tough from the pro tees since you have to play up a hill for about 500', and the fairway narrows toward the green with woods and water protecting the pin.

Sword, then some kind of fairway driver maybe saint or teebird. Opto Pure for upshot if needed. Wizard when I'm close.

I'd throw long off the tee with a boss probably and then finish eventually with a Classic Aviar.

if windy: wraith, wraith, eagle, roc, putt.

if not windy: roadrunner, roadrunner, eagle, roc, putt.

a 4 would be nice on this one, but i think most people will be taking a 5 for par.
