No secrets here. But if you slice one off the tee, make it a big slice so you can play your second from the 16th fairway and feel like Seve. The wind will help your slice. Left off the tee is good. You'll be at the mercy of the rough, though, and a few tiny trees recently planted to make your life miserable. The best angle for the approach is from the left side of the fairway. If you miss it, again, miss it short, or left off the green. There are two bunkers guarding the right side of the green. They are not very visible from the fairway, but they're there. The green slopes just like the others: back to front, and towards the ocean (left). There's an optical illusion that may make you believe there is a break to the right. You don't have to have your eyes examined, just trust me and play the break towards the ocean. One more time, all together now, "do not miss the green long". The beautiful, yet annoying, Torrey pines will challenge your short game.
