THIS WEEK VS. LAST WEEK

In the men's U.S. Open, the sixth hole played the hardest on No. 2 while the fifth hole was the easiest for the field.

No. 6, a par three playing from 192-245 yards, yielded 12 birdies in the four days. There were 150 bogeys and 14 double bogeys or worse adding up to a 3.37 stroke per player average.

No. 5, a par five playing from 528-572, played at a 4.80 average. It gave up 17 of the 22 eagles the course allowed with 144 birdies compared to 56 bogeys and 14 doubles or worse.

In the women's Open, the eighth hole played the most difficult for the four rounds combined. The par four, at 423 yards in Sunday's round, played at a 4.51 stroke per player average. It gave up 28 birdies while seeing 51 double bogeys or worse.

The two par fives were the easiest holes compared to par in the women's Open with No. 5 edging out No. 10 as easiest, at 4.90 strokes per player. Birdies were more common on No. 5, but eagles were more frequent on No. 10, especially Sunday.

Nine eagles, including one by Michelle Wie which took her to 3-under for the tourney, were holed on No. 10 in the final round along with 43 birdies, 19 pars and no bogeys or worse.

No. 16, a 453-yard par four, was the most difficult hole on Sunday giving up two birdies, 31 bogeys and six double bogeys, also including one by Wie.


LOW AMATEUR

16-year-old Canadian Brooke Mackenzie Henderson shot a final-round 1-under 69 to win the low amateur title Sunday.

Henderson, from Smiths Falls, Ontario, shot 71, 73 and 72 in the first three rounds finishing 5-over overall and tied for 10th overall. She made five birdies in her final round and hit 86 percent of the fairways for the week. This was her second U.S. Women's Open.

"The best players in the world are here and to know that I'm right up there, it's really awesome," Henderson said.

"I still have a long way to go to where I want to be in the next couple years, but it's really exciting to know that I have the potential and it was a great finish here this week."

Henderson wound up feeling she grew even within the four rounds at Pinehurst.

"When I first got here I was like, wow, this is an extremely tough course and it's going to take four really solid rounds to even like come close to, well first to make the cut and then to climb up the leaderboard," she said.

"I was almost intimidated the first couple days and then as I got playing and I started to hit the ball really well, I knew where to hit it on the fairways and where to hit it on the greens and I became much more confident...I sort of wish there was another round to go back out there, but next year."
