The tee shot should be aimed down the right side for a good
angle into the green, which features two large bunkers to the
left. Any approach that is short could spin some 25 yards back
into the fairway.
Howell III's take: "Nine has changed a bit with
added length off the tee and the added trees down the right.
For the ideal shot, there's an oak tree you can see in the
distance and it's a draw off that oak tree, Hopefully the ball
will run down to the bottom. If not, you'll just have a wicked
downhill lie to a massively uphill green. It's amazing how low
your approach shot flies into the green off that down slope.
There you got to be below the hole, so you're not thinking 3,
but rather that you can't hit your ball long. Front left pins,
you've seen great shots and disasters. But putting from long
to the front left pin, it breaks 25-30 feet."
Famous Moment: Jack Nicklaus heard a cheer
behind him in the final round in 1986 when he said loud enough
for the gallery to hear, "Let's make some noise of our own." He
made his birdie putt, then shot 30 on the back nine to win.
Hall of Shame: Greg Norman went after the
pin on Sunday and saw the ball spin down the hill back into the
fairway, the start of his record collapse in 1996.
