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.

BILLY FOSTER REMEMBERS: "I once told Darren to aim at the TV tower. He looked at me as if I was stupid. I told him to trust me and he hit it to 10 feet for birdie."

PETER ALLISS: "This is an innocuous hole – the only one without a bunker – and you could say the green is a joke, but that’s what makes it. The fairway is also tough - its slopes often kick shots into trouble on the right. Pitch on one side of the huge humps and you could knock it stone dead, but pitch it a yard the other side and you could be 30 yards away. This is the trickiest green on the course."
