Ultimate Golf Photo Tour: The Hay

The Hay
Tiger Woods and Pebble Beach will forever be linked if for no other reason than Woods' dominating U.S. Open win in 2000. That June, Woods, 24, who had won the Pebble Beach AT&T Pro-Am just months earlier, won his first U.S. Open by an astounding 15 strokes. Now, Pebble Beach Company is unveiling The Hay, a Tiger Woods-designed nine-hole short course located on the former short course originally designed by longtime head golf professional Peter Hay in 1957. The course opens on April 16. (Photo: Pebble Beach Resorts)
The Hay — Hole 2
The second hole is designed in the likeness of Pebble Beach Golf Links' iconic par-3 seventh. All nine holes are associated with a name or hole of special significance to Pebble Beach — Hay (No. 1), Seven (No. 2), Watson (No. 3), Bing (No. 4), Grace (No. 5), Lanny (No. 6), Jack (No. 7), Kite (No. 8) and Tiger (No. 9).  (Photo: Pebble Beach Resorts)
The Hay — Hole 3
Each of the nine holes' yardage corresponds to a significant year in Pebble Beach history and have plaques on each tee telling the story. The third hole, for example, is just 82 yards in honor of Tom Watson's U.S. Open that featured him chipping in on the par-3 17th and going on to defeat Jack Nicklaus. (Photo: Pebble Beach Resorts)
The Hay — Hole 5
The fifth hole is just 48 yards — 1 yard longer than the fourth — and recognizes the 1948 U.S. Women's Amateur Championship that was won by Grace Lenczyk. (Photo: Pebble Beach Resorts)
The Hay — Hole 8
The Hay was designed in in such a way that the views of Carmel Bay could be maximized, such as the 92-yard eighth hole.  (Photo: Pebble Beach Resorts)
The Hay — Hole 9
The finishing nine hole plays away from Carmel Bay, and pays homage to Woods' 2000 U.S. Open victory. It also is steps away from the a creatively-designed 20,000 square-foot putting course that covers 100 yards and has varied routing possibilities.  (Photo: Pebble Beach Resorts)
