Mines 3

Par 4, 350 yards

Just a few holes in and the terrain has you thinking twice about where to put your shots. After two uphill tee shots, this one is downhill, followed by an approach to an elevated green.

With an unforgiving left side of the fairway, I take out a 4-iron but catch it weak and left. My next play is 5-wood, but that's also short and left--I must be turning my head on contact. But I salvage a pitching wedge, placing it on the front edge of the elevated green. I line up the 18-footer and play 6 inches of break. My biggest concern is getting it there. I strike it and watch it curl toward the cup and drop. 4.
