Sunday's final round at Muirfield features several hole locations tucked into corners of its crusty greens that are marbled in light, links brown. Here are a few – and check out Bradley S. Klein's hole-by-hole breakdown of Muirfield for a deeper analysis of the challenge before players today.

Suffice it to say, however, players must gauge their rolls correctly on approach shots, or risk being short-sided often.

Hole No. 1: This back-right pin is listed at 5 yards from the right edge of the putting surface and appears about 7 yards from the back edge.

Hole No. 3: This front-right pin is listed at 4 yards from the right edge and 9 yards from the front edge at its apex, but the curvature of the green means it's practically about 7 yards from the front.

Hole No. 4: This back-left pin is listed at 4 yards from the left edge and appears about 6 yards from the back.

Hole No. 5: Another back-left pin, this one also is listed at 4 yards from the left edge, and the sharp curve of the green puts it about 7 yards from the back at that point.

Hole No. 7: Shifting simply to the left, this pin is listed 6 yards from the left edge and appears to also be 6 yards from the back edge.

Hole No. 8: After some of these measurements, this pin 7 yards from the left edge and 10 yards from the front edge almost seems normal.

Hole No. 9: This back-right pin is listed 6 yards from the right edge and appears about 5 yards from the back.

Hole No. 10: At the front right and guarded by two bunkers, this pin can play tighter than its 9 yards from the right edge and 11 from the front.

Hole No. 12: On this oddly shaped green, the pin is listed at 6 yards from the left and appears about 5 yards from the back at that point.

• Hole No. 17: Another oddly shaped green has this pin listed at 5 yards from the right edge and about 8 yards from the diagonal front edge at that point.

Hole No. 18: The final hole location of the day is listed at 6 yards from the left edge and appears about 8 from the back.

This list doesn't even include holes cut close to the sides of greens, but in the middle. So players are indeed in for a challenge today.
