Hole 2 - Pink Dogwood

Published:

PAR 5 - 575 YARDS

Another hole where it’s very hard to fly the fairway bunker in the way that players used to.

It must be 330 yards out there and most of the time you’re looking at short of the sand, leaving a 3-wood into the green. Many pins are on the top shelf to the left and a lot of guys miss to the right. Miss it left and you don’t have a chip and if you’re long, it’s very difficult to get up and down. Anything landing front middle will funnel round to the Sunday pin on the right corner.

Geoff Ogilvy – "This may be the best green on the whole course, which is why they have replicated it on the practice range. The way you play the hole depends on where the flag is on the green. Off the tee you can a three wood short of the fairway bunker on the right, or try to blow your driver down the hill a bit. If the pin is on the left, your lay-up is almost in the crowd to the right of the fairway. The hardest pin is the one front right. Then you have to leave yourself a pretty straight lay-up and take your chance from there. A great par 5."
