Hole 17, Lake
Hole 17
Keira Knightley
By Helena Wade
Royal Liverpool, handicap five

This hole is a long par-four for the men and a par-five for the ladies.

The prevailing south-westerly wind makes this hole one of the most difficult and testing par-fives.

Recent changes include new bunkers, which protect both sides of the fairway and force the long hitters to be more accurate with their tee shots. But the fairway is wide and inviting, with the bunker on the right out of reach from the ladies tee.

If the conditions are favourable, then I consider this hole to be a great birdie opportunity. A solid drive will provide me with a chance to go for the green in two.

If the wind is against then three good shots are required to hit the green in regulation. It is very rare that the wind is favourable on this hole.

The putting surface is a deep two-tier green that is protected by a number of bunkers.
