Hole Guide

The tee-shot here is the most important shot of the tournament according to Jack Nicklaus. A slight dogleg right hole that requires a precise second shot to an undulating green. A poorly struck approach shot may result in a difficult two putt. Drives to the left may catch the pine trees. It plays uphill with a yawning bunker on the right. Position A is therefore just left of centre.
