The homeward stretch is now started with a long par 5 – over 600 yards off the championship tee’s. Out of bounds lines the right of the hole and ruins many a score card. The 17th is a real 3 shot par 5 and the new bunkers 70 yards short of the green need to be avoided. A long green can lengthen the hole further and is protected again by front bunkers.
Keep your ball left off the tee, you will still be in play and have a chance of a par. The out of bounds is like a magnet and is to be avoided at all costs. Lay up with your second shot and this will afford you a simple pitch.
