A tough start to the round, so hopefully you’ve warmed up on the range beforehand! Several bunkers are to be avoided from the tee and considering this hole usually plays into the wind, quite a narrow green awaits. If you can manage an opening par 4, give yourself a pat on the back before proceeding to the 2nd.
“The perfect line from the tee is the left hand fairway bunker which can be reached in certain playing conditions. Aim to be short of the flag with your second shot in to ensure a good chance of saving your score.”
