From the tee, players will aim to move the ball right to take full advantage of the downhill contours at this sweeping dogleg left fairway. Most players can reach the green in two. A solid shot will be rewarded by a putt for eagle. However, accurate judgment is vital with Rae’s Creek in front of the raised green and four bunkers behind. Japan’s Tommy Nakajima posted an unlucky 13 at the hole in 1975. Nakajima found water off the tee and the water again in front of the green. And then incurred two penalties: first when the ball landed on his shoe after he tried to play it; then, when he and his caddie fumbled his sand wedge and it touched the water.
