Par 4

 

This simple looking finishing hole is another that the longer pros can drive -- Jack Nicklaus did it in every round as long ago as 1964. But there is out-of-bounds all the way up the right side and those who take a more cautious approach are left with a short pitch to a tilted green that climbs up from a deep hollow known as the Valley of Sin. The smarter option is often a low pitch and run up the slope.
