1934 yardage: 340, par 4
"Length is certainly not at a premium here, but the narrow fairway seems to have an added impact because it suddenly confronts the player just when he has become accustomed to the broad expanses of the preceding holes. ... The second shot is normally a steep pitch, often with a wedge, and precise judgment of range is required."

Did it work?
Accuracy off the tee and the added length have made this a more difficult hole. The small, heavily bunkered green now requires more than a short iron approach and yields fewer birdies.
