How I played it
I’ve played it many times, but most memorably in the final round of the 2005 Open. The three I made jumped me up to a tie for fifth, so it was a pretty big birdie. My tee shot finished 30 yards short of the putting surface and 20 yards in from the out-of-bounds fence. That left a little pitch-and-run that broke about 25 feet from rightto-left and finished eight feet from the cup. It was a pretty straightforward shot, made simpler by the fact I could take the Valley of Sin out of play because the ground slopes so much towards the pin.
