Edgbaston: Course open, trolleys and trikes permitted but no buggies today. Please stick to fairways, extremely wet in areas.
The drive is uphill with the woods waiting for a hook and the silver birch for a slice. The second shot is more steeply uphill to an armchair green with very difficult borrows.
There is no room for error here. The hole is not long so the more prudent can sacrifice distance for placing the tee shot in play. Whilst only needing a mid iron or less, the second shot offers no compromise at all. A short shot will find a deep bunker whilst a long shot will come to rest on the top of the severe slope at the back leaving an impossible chip.
