Here's a simple hole that can jump and kick you in your teeth. A
shortish dogleg left, usually into the wind. You hook your tee
shot and all kinds of nasty things can happen to you: canyon,
trees, snakes. If you miss your tee shot it'd better be right. A
simple 3-wood down the middle will do here. Your approach shot
may be compromised a little by a downhill lie. The change in
elevation from the fairway to the green compensates a little bit
the fact that you are hitting into the wind. The view from the
fairway towards the green is a preview of what you'll see on the
next hole, with Torrey pines framing the picture. On a calm
windless day, if you hit it long the sloping of the fairway
towards the green will add quite a few yards to your drive and
leave you with a short pitch for your second. The green is
another one of those that you don't want to miss long. If in
doubt, play just short of the front and to the left. It slopes
from back to front and mostly from left to right.
