This is a great hole, especially for ladies.
The hole plays 455 yards from the red tees and forces you to make a number of decisions. It has a new green and a number of newly positioned fairway and greenside bunkers.
Ladies can take a risk and take the "Tiger line" from the tee and aim left of the fairway, cutting the corner slightly, which brings the left bunker into play.
I tend to take the safe option and aim right of the fairway in line with the right-hand bunkers.
I used to expect to birdie this hole before the changes were made as you could really attack the green with your second shot. But the changes force you to use your course management skills and look to place your second shot on the right side of the fairway, avoiding the bunker on the left.
When I am feeling confident I try to thread my second shot between the bunker on the left of the fairway and the bunker on the right of the fairway with my five-wood. If I decide to be sensible then I hit my seven-wood up to the bunker on the right which gives you a great angle to attack the green.
The new green now boasts two tiers and almost invites you to make three putts. Therefore, the third shot demands you to hit it close to the pin.
