Hokom and PP took eagles on six as well, so apparently not super difficult hole.

It's arguably not a par 5, at least for those with even moderate length off the tee. If they have the power to clear the water with their second throw (and Henna and Paige certainly do), an eagle three shouldn't be tough at all.

Barsby has to get those drives/approach shots closer if has any hope of making a charge. MJ...wow...that was a bit rough at times to watch.
I have to imagine they are pretty used to it at this point. I know this is worlds, but it seems like they play quite a few rounds in a season without much of a gallery. Eagle isn't really surprising me given how much he dislikes Eureka. I wouldn't be surprised if this is one of the last times we see Eagle at Eureka for quite some time.

Today it played about 1/3 of a stroke under par. If it was a par 4 it would have been the 4th hardest hole on the course rather than the easiest. At Ledgestone this year, with all 3 rounds at Sunset, the best the hole did was 0.2 under par (round 1). I think having an eagle-able hole or two on the course isn't a huge deal, but if this hole was playing closer to a half stroke or more under par, I think I'd want to see it switched.

Dang Erika and Catrina are really cutting the lead down.

yup. halfway through the round, the lead has been cut in half. My math says that's on pace to cut the lead down completely by the end of the round if they keep this pace up.

Absolutely, it's a tweener for sure. At Ledgestone I had a little tailwind in the final round, and had an albatross look after my drive. It flashed just past the basket and skidded down in C1.

Of course I missed the eagle putt. FML.
