Hole 6 - The Liffey Stream, Par 4, 478 yards/437 metres

Tom Lehman: The tee shot is the key on this hole, simply because of the water which fronts the green. If you hit it in the rough you probably can't reach the green. You can actually aim it a bit further right than you think and take it aggressively over the rough and if you hit a good enough drive you can find the fairway and shorten up the hole. The second shot can be deceptively long but it depends again on the wind. The green has some nice possibilities for pin positions but it is all about the drive on this hole.
