Hole 18 at Royal St George's
460 yards, par four

There's quite a generous fairway to aim at from the tee.

It's best to direct the ball left to avoid the risk of falling into a bunker that guards the front right of the narrow green.

The left also offers a good angle to the putting surface.

There's a high side on the right of the green and hollow that tends to gather the ball down the left which will make two putting difficult.

The placing of the pin is all important on the final hole.

There's a back area where the flag will be placed one day which does not offer much room for mistakes.

And with deep rough located on the right many golfers will consider themselves lucky to walk away from the final hole with a four.
