KEN ON THE COURSE: HIS HOLE-BY-HOLE GUIDE
Ken says: Pines now constrain the right side of the fairway. The approach is the beginning of Amen Corner. The best line is right of the flag, away from the pond.
The 11th is the hardest hole on the course. It’s just a long, long par 4. It demands a good drive and if you bail out with your approach, the chances are you’ll drop one at least. The 12th is marvellous because it’s packed with people and there’s only a small sliver of green. And then 13 gives you a chance. There’s a possibility that you could go three-two-three, but it’s equally as likely that you could go five-five-five. There are so many permutations. The wind direction is constantly changing on 12, which makes it very tricky. The flag on the 11th can be going in the opposite direction too, which puts the willies up you. And when the ball gets above the treeline, it can catch you out.
