Kaufman 10

Par 4, 364 yards, dogleg right over a creek

After a handful of par-4's on the front with few frills in their layout, this tee shot will make you think. The creek is from 210-220 yards from the tee, so the play for the average player is to leave it short with a 5-wood or low iron, then cross the creek with a mid-iron to get to the green.

I flub my 4-iron off the tee, and worry my front nine swing woes have made the turn with me. I cross the creek from the back edge of the fairway with a 7-wood, but don't get much farther than that. I leave my 9-iron short and chip to within 10 feet, then two-putt for a 6.
