Mackie: Sandhills covered in thick rough line both sides of the fairway as it swings gently to the right between bunkers at the 280-yard mark. Miss the fairway and it will likely cost a shot. There is a three-club difference between front and back pin positions on a green that cuts back more than 50 yards into the dunes and is surrounded by humps, hollows, bunkers and rough. The prevailing wind is across from the right.
