UPDATE: That 100-yard par 4 at the AT&T Byron Nelson has been changed to a par 3

May 29, 2015

If a 300-yard hole is called a drivable par 4, what's one that's 100 yards? A pitch-able par 4?

That's what PGA Tour players will be dealing with during Friday's second round of the AT&T Byron Nelson. Seriously.

Four and a half inches of rain pelted TPC Las Colinas overnight, which now officially makes this the rainiest May in the history of the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The start of the second round was delayed by three hours, and we assume the par is remaining the same on No. 14 for consistency throughout the tournament (Chambers Bay will flip pars on two of its holes during the U.S. Open but par will stay 70 for each round).

So a 100-yard par 4 (104 to be exact) it is. Should be a decent confidence booster for the boys.

UPDATE: Gary Woodland has taken advantage of this situation.

UPDATE NO. 2: The PGA Tour has thought better of this.

Sorry, Gary.
