Hole 18 - Holly

Published:

PAR 4 - 465 YARDS

Lots of length added again. Bunkers are well in play, although it’s 300 yards to reach them. You’ll see some guys play 3-wood off this tee and then a 5 or 6-iron.

Others will cut a driver and leave an 8-iron. Four pins here, front left and right and back left and right. For the front flags, you need to pitch it past the hole where you have 12 yards before you reach the top tier.

The back pins are harder because judging the length of the approach is tricky; short and you roll back, long and you bounce through.

PETER ALLISS: "The finishing hole sees you blast your tee shot up the hill but the bunkers on the left have been enlarged for an extra challenge. The ridge that runs across the green can be so important. I’ve seen it so many times – you think a player is miles long, then the ball stops, you just see a little movement and the ball trickles back all the way down and ends up inside 10 feet from the Sunday pin"
