St Andrews: Hole by hole | 16th
Hole 16 – Corner of the Dyke – Par 4, 418yds
I used to hit iron off the tee and leave a 4-iron. But you can leave yourself on a mega up or downslope making it hard to control your ball in the wind. Now I hit driver or 3-wood right to the corner of the 3rd or even down the middle of the rough and hit a 9-iron in. By doing that, you stay away from out of bounds on the right and the big bunker. It cuts four clubs off. A lot of guys leave it short of the fairway bunkers and some go right, but that’s fraught with danger. There are so many elements to consider.
