You know, I don't remember. I actually forgot it even existed (the back one) because it isn't clear on google maps unless you look closely - there's a tree blocking it.
Further, if you measure the hole, it's pretty clear that based on the card, the blues are measured from the tiny one (466), and the whites are measured from the big one (430) that is still prior to the ditch. So if they have the tees where they're supposed to be, we're all going to have a fun time finishing up on Sunday. :)
I think everybody's target should be the dude's cart in the google maps overhead shot (it's out of reach, but I think its a good, safe-ish line). Just a little left of the bunker, playing away from the water. It's going to leave a 180-200 approach for most of us, unless you want to get a little daring and hug the waters edge, which could cut 10-20 yards off your approach.
(I sense there will be a lot of pitch and chip shots being attempted from short and left of the green) ;)
EDIT: And to add to the fun, IIRC correctly, it plays upwind.
