This opening hole is a nice dogleg to the left, for the members a par-5, but for the professionals a long par-4. On the left the entire hole threatens the danger of out of bounds, and the strategically placed bunkers do their job perfectly by getting annoying at every turn.

 

Really a great experience. We had to endure a spicy shower halfway through our round, but we had not yet closed our umbrellas or the staff at The International had already started driving to hand out dry towels. I've never experienced anything like this before.
