Kaufman 1

Par 4, 362 yards

You have to leave your tee shot short and left of the water on the right, which is no sweat for me with my lefty slice. The green is elevated and guarded by bunkers, but reachable in two or three for the average player.

I shape a decent 5-wood off the tee. With 180-plus to the green, I don't think I can make it with an iron, but the incline and slope of the green make me want to keep my woods in the bag, as long as I carry the pesky creek on the right side. I duff my 6-iron and shank my 8-iron, then come short on my pitching wedge and watch my sand wedge roll one to the back fringe. It's a 3-putt from there, and an inauspicious snowman to start the round. 8.
