Hole 14 - Chinese Fir

Published:

PAR 4 - 440 YARDS

Got to hit a draw off the tee and then we’re talking an 8-iron or so.

You mustn’t be short and it’s 14 yards from the front of the green to the ridge in the middle. With some flag positions here you can hit it 30 feet left and it’ll run 20 feet from left to right. This is a hole where two shots can pitch a foot apart and one has a five-footer for birdie and the other a 55-footer.

The Quiros way: There’s no real risk off this tee with no fairway bunkers to worry about. So again it’s a case of pulling the driver out. I’m left with a 9-iron or wedge in. I’m looking to favour the right side of the pin because on landing, the ball can move sideways on the sloping green. Targetscore: 4

The Wilson way: I’d drive down the left because the sloping fairways kick the ball to the right, leaving only about a 9-iron in. Again, I’ll be seeking the middle of the green as the slopes will feed the ball down to most pin positions. Targetscore: 4
