Hole 4 at Royal St George's
497 yards, par five

This used to be a par four but the tee has been put back.

There are two bunkers sitting in front to the right-hand side of the tee, which you used to be able to drive over but now they are very much in play.

The two bunkers are actually more like huge chasms, especially the right-hand one which is quite difficult to fall into and even more difficult to get out of.

Most players will have to play to the left of it. The fairway up to then is on a hogsback and 25 yards wide.

But, after you have passed the hazards, it widens out to about 50 yards.

The approach to the green is fairly difficult as you don't quite know where to land the ball.

There's a big ridge in front of the putting surface so an ideal shot would see the ball scoot up it.

This hole should offer a birdie opportunity because it's not a particularly long par five.
