Even though this hole is short, it gives me trouble. If I lay up to the area I normally do, it gives me about a PW to a shallow green. Long on this green is very bad, and with the sand, short right is no good as well.
In mid-summer, the hole typically plays downwind. It is also mostly downhill. In these conditions, depending on how I am hitting, I have hit driver. If I catch it clean, I can carry the 225 bunker with the downhill and wind helping. Even though the fairway narrows a bit (it is rough between the fairway bunker and greenside bunkers), if you can get it to that area, for me it is preferable to the lay up area.
Any other ideas? Other than learn how to carry 225 in all conditions.
