A guide to the second hole at Hazeltine National Golf Club in Minnesota ahead of the 41st Ryder Cup from 30th Sept - 2nd October
Hazeltine National Golf Club Course Guide: Hole 2
Hole 2 - Par 4 - 431 yards
The second at Hazeltine is a dogleg-left par 4 that will see plenty of birdies.
The long hitters will be able to carry the bunker down the left to leave a flick in. If he makes the team, Bubba Watson's foursomes partner will enjoy this hole.
Some will choose to hit a 3-wood or even less down the right and play in from there.
The green is heavily guarded by bunkers but with just a wedge in hand they should only come into play if an error is made.
