“The Box Car” is Hole #7, US Senior Open

Bob Barry Jr. says hole #7 is called The Box Car and is a par 5, 511 yards.

“This hole can cause problems.  “The Golden Bear” himself fired a fat NINE on this hole in the 1988 PGA Championship at Oak Tree National.  In fact, it was the first time in Jack Nicklaus’ career he lost TWO golf balls on the same hole.  There’s a creek that runs alongside the driving area until it crosses the fairway, and bunkers in front of the green,” says Bob Jr.
