Tim,Thanks for starting this thread.The 1st is one of my favorite openers, and admittedly I have a fond memory of playing it with Dan Lucas and Mike DeVries. I flew the central bunkers, got a huge bounce down the slope, hit my second to about three feet, and made eagle. I won't mention what happened after that...I think Mike grumbled something about needing a new tee, but got his revenge shortly thereafter I believe we were playing from the "Black" yardage, it certainly wasn't any longer than that.
I think it depends on HOW FAR you smack it down the left. I think for a short to medium length hitter or a long hitter who wants to hit a fairway wood off the tee it's not necessarily a bad option. But for me, if i try and crush a driver and take that hill, and miss it left, well its not good.
