Hole 2 at Royal St George's
418 yards, par four

This hole has got a new tee, which is positioned a little further back than the one at the 1993 Open.

There are a couple of bunkers near the dogleg, on the left-hand side of the tee, that you have a chance to flirt with.

Do you take them on?

Well, there's plenty of room on the right, so many may choose to lay up there because the rough is quite sparse.

Otherwise you could go for broke, use a driver and hope there is sufficient wind to carry the ball through.

A lot of players will slump for an iron or three-wood.

The green is small and set over a little hollow which slopes from front to back.

It's best to come up short of the flag and leave an uphill putt.
