KEN ON THE COURSE: HIS HOLE-BY-HOLE GUIDE

Golf Asia - - GOLFING SCENE -

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.
