Mackie: It's important to hit the small lay-up area between a new island of rough at 220-230 yards and another finger of rough that juts into the fairway around two bunkers at 260-285 yards. Players will want maximum control of a lob-wedge approach into a subtly contoured green that lies just beyond a hidden bend of Jockie's Burn.
