Ryder Cup Course 2014

Hole 6 – “Mickle Skelp” – Par 3 – 201 Yards

This downhill par-3 plays shorter than the yardage, requiring a mid-iron to a narrow but deep green. A fairly large bunker will swallow any shot pulled left off the tee, but still gives a reasonable chance to salvage par as the putting surface is fairly flat. Players will regard this as a birdie chance and look to be aggressive with their approaches, particularly in the four balls.
