LAY­ING UP LONG

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Play Your Best -

This is a good blend of safe and dar­ing. The wa­ter is out of play, but you still need a solid drive to get a ball all the way down here, where you’ll be re­warded with a short ap­proach. It’s the right op­tion for the golfer who’s more likely to make birdie by stick­ing a wedge close than by bomb­ing a 250-me­tre drive. There is a wrin­kle on this hole: The green slopes from right to le’, so it’s tough to stop any shot com­ing from the right. A back-right pin would be a vote against driv­ing it here.
