The par-4 15th begins a home stretch that could play very different from day to day all depending on wind. Downwind, the 15th and 17th will play very short, but into the breeze those two will become more challenging while the 16th and 18th might be neutral for the world’s best.

The flyover of the 418-yard 15th does not capture the difficulty of land forms here or the exposure of the green, but does give you an idea that another right-to-left shaped tee shot seems in order.

Calamity in all its glory, at 236 yards, is a stunning-looking par-3 though I don’t know how much the 75-foot falloff will come into play for the world’s best golfers.
