The key to scoring on this hole is an aerial shot or a low bump and run shot. The bunker short of the approach heightens the accomplishment of a well executed bump and run shot into the firm approach. Cupping areas nearest the adjacent bunkers require added strategy and thought. A shot hit over a back left pin position will find a bentgrass collar “catch area”. If a shot falls down the slope to this area the player will be left with three options for recovery back to the green: a lob, pitch, or putt.

The back left corner of the green offers a tournament cupping area, but you need to pay attention to the bent grass “catch area” behind. From there you will be left with three options for your recovery back to the green; lobe, pitch or putt. This green slopes hard from back left to front right. Best to stay below the hole.
