Hole 3 at Royal St George's
210 yards, par three

A wonderful par three to a two-level green.

All you are trying to do here is aim at the centre of the putting surface with a long iron from the tee.

You can land the ball off to the right flank of the green and hope that it kicks on.

The green, which is only 15 or 16 yards wide, is very unforgiving down the left as the ball is likely to bear the brunt of the humps and hollows.

It's a good and challenging par three. It will be all the more interesting if there is any crosswind, which would make finding the green very difficult.
