CARNOUSTIE: The Pros, the Caddies and YOU
If you've played it, tell us how you fared. If not advise how you might approach it. And when you watch it during The Open TV coverage, we'd value your observations on the incidents you spot on Hole 16.

I think I read that Tom Watson has never birdied this hole... (or was it par?)Its very tough - into the wind I need a wood which ended up a way right of the green - escaped with a pitch and 2 putt 4. (and was thankful for it!)

I played it a couple of years back. Thinned a 3 iron as i recall to the green, 2 putted for par. It was a bit shorter than 248 though from the tees we had to play from. I think I was in the Barry Burn about 3 times though on 17 & 18 !

Played it at the beginning of June. 248 yds to the pin that day. Tend to hit the drive a little further than that and as I never used a 3 wood (got one after this round) played a 3 iron into the front bunker. Up and Down for +1, was quite pleased. mulliganplus
