If this hole plays into the wind, The Beardies make it a very tight drive. From here, a simple splash out is the only option. OOB down the right is also a threat so the pros will often opt for a 3-wood for safety from the tee, which will leave them short of the bunkers as well. Up at the green and another table-top green ensures that everyone will have to work hard for their birdie by getting their spin control spot on.
