This from Robert Hunter:"Not infrequently one sees bunkers so placed as to prohibit good play. Bunkers behind the green often deter one from bold shots to the pin."This sentiment is echoed by The Captain, who advocated fairway extensions behind greens.
...bunkers behind greens can be a good psychological strategic feature, because they get into the agressive low handicapper's mind, but are seldom noticed or entered by high handicappers (who tend to miss short.)
