2004 U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills
The par-3 seventh hole, with its severely sloping green, was regarded by players and the toughest to play during the 2004 Open. Coniditions got worse when the green was accidentally "rolled" the night before the final round, leading to a super-dry turf that saw several putts skid off the green.
