There's a new tee on this one.

The angle has changed so instead of playing the shot slightly across the green you now play straight down.

The tee shot needs to be fed down the right-hand side - there's a couple of bunkers you have to flirt with in order to end up in the middle of the putting surface.

The green is much bigger than it looks. It's a long surface that invites you to play a run shot.

Many competitors will find it difficult to get close to the flag - what looks like a good shot from the tee often happens to be about 40 feet away from the flag.
