Jim,I will say that I actively look to put long 4's into the wind and short 4's downwind, as you describe. Well, at least some of them. My reasoning is that doing the opposite can really tend to make them all play the same effective length. Some gca's (RTJII wrote this in his book) believe the long par 4's into the wind are just too hard.
Jeff,Thank you. It is getting harder and harder to get a long iron for a second shot into a par 4 as you point out. This seems like a way to do it without going to ridiculous lengths. Very interesting on the use of bunkers. Thanks.
