One of the great championship holes, the fourth is an intimidating prospect. A towering bunker, perhaps the tallest in Britain, and with a long back, faces the driver, and attempts to skirt it by aiming left often run further left into trouble.
Once the fairway has been found, approaches that can range from pitches to a full 3 wood have to contend with a green cut at an angle. Shots run in from the left, and balls right of centre will fall off on the other side.
Accurate clubbing is required – anything short is caught by a Valley of Sin with a six foot climb to the flag that makes two-putting a rarity, but out-of-bounds is only three paces over the back.
