Hole 6 – Juniper


PAR 3 – 180 YARDS

A mid-iron off the tee, it plays eight to 10 yards downhill.

Easiest pins are on the left, but they also place two flags in the week on the plateau to the right which is virtually a green within a green. You need to be so precise or you’re facing a very tough two-putt.

BILLY FOSTER REMEMBERS: “On that top plateau, Tiger pitched it two feet away and got a tiny bit of spin… which took it back down the slope. The ball finished 10 yards short of the green and he was still there after two shots because his chip rolled back to his feet.”

PETER ALLISS: “I can remember when this used to be about 140 yards but it’s now a lot longer. The large and undulating two-tier green, protected at the front by a large bunker means you have to be extremely accurate off the tee. Find the right part of the putting surface and control your spin to keep it close to the pin or you’ll be seriously struggling to escape with a par.”
