Edgbaston: Course open, trolleys and trikes permitted but no buggies today. Please stick to fairways, extremely wet in areas.
The slightest fade will mean that the drive can easily run out of fairway and find the silver birch. The second shot is played to a shelf like green set into a slope that falls away sharply to the right. Anything short will find the formidable pot bunkers from which a bogey or worse is the likely result. The green has a two tier green in the Mackenzie style.
Concentrate on keeping the drive on the fairway, a slight draw is the ideal shot. There is no advantage at all in being short on the second shot so take plenty of club. The two tier green can play havoc with your putting so try to hit the right level.
