This dogleg right is the signature hole at Oakland Hills. Players must keep the ball in the fairway by avoiding water right and trees left. Like the 18th hole at The Belfry, this second shot will be one of the most intimidating with a match on the line. A short-iron approach will be one to a wide, shallow green that has a ridge running from front to back with water protecting the green along the front and right side. Some players may be tempted to use one extra club and take the water out of play.play. They run the risk of catching one of the four rear bunkers and leaving a difficult sand shot.
