NO REAL CHOICE
These three bunkers I consider neither challenge nor directional. To finish the hole you have to go over them at some point, so there’s no decision. They boost the importance of finding the fairway with the drive. If your tee shot catches the first challenge bunker (left of the fairway), you might have to lay up short of these three. Reaching the green in regulation will be impossible. It’s just like No. 17 at Baltusrol.
