LAYING UP LONG
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.
