Video: Olympia Fields' Toughest Hole

Lessons in the third hole on the North Course at Olympia Fields Country Club.

A blind tee shot downhill, followed by an uphill shot to a green surrounded by potential traps. No wonder the third hole on the North Course at Olympia Fields Country Club is rated as the No. 1 handicap hole on player scorecards.

The par-4 hole was the most difficult in the U.S. Open in 2003, according to Club President Jeff Goldman.

Out on the links, club member Mike Lewis shared a bit of local knowledge and did Patch the honor of explaining an ideal way to attack the daunting hole. Then, he did a good job himself of completing the task, recovering from a minor fairway bobble to salvage a bogey-5.
