1934 yardage: 400, par 4
"The second shot is usually played with a 3-iron or a stronger club, and a player must be bold indeed to go for the pin when it is in this location (left-hand side). ... a great many players play this hole safely to the right, relying on getting a long putt or chip dead for the par."
--- Bobby Jones
