This hole always plays as the easiest of the 18. It will give up the most birdies; 50% more than any other hole. It is reachable in two shots by many in the field. The difficulty off the tee is taking the gamble for the long ball with a high, fading tee shot. This shot will have to go around and over two, very deep, fairway bunkers. There is also out of bounds on the right side. If you hit into these bunkers, you will have to lay-up with a 7 to 9 iron. Because of these difficult bunkers, some players will play this hole in the "lay-up mode": long iron off the tee, long iron second shot and full wedge onto the green. With the exception of the back center hole location, the green is receptive to shots. When the pin is placed on top of this narrow knob, birdies will not come easy.
