1934 yardage: 350, par 4
"The left hand side of the green is very narrow; whereas the right side is broad. It is easy for anyone to reach the wide portion of the green with their second shot but difficult to reach the narrow end where the pin will usually be placed."

Did it work?
The bunker rarely comes into play, although Jeff Maggert ran into trouble here in 2003. The shortest par-4 on the course tempts the big hitters to use a driver, but the devilish green is the key on this classic short hole. A well-placed approach is a must here to avoid a three-putt.
