One of Two Eagles to Ever Happen at Firestone Country Club’s 16th Hole

Called “The Monster” for it’s ridiculous length and difficulty, the 16th hole at Firestone Country Club has seen only two eagles since 2003; here’s one of them from 2008 courtesy of Soren Hansen.

The other player to shoot an eagle came via a Charley Hoffman approach in 2007. The other daunting stats are just as impressive.

Should make for some highlights and major fails this weekend as the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational takes center stage.
