Hole 7 - Michael’s Favourite, Par 4, 430 yards/393 metres

Tom Lehman: This is a very tough hole indeed. It is into the wind normally and all the new trees on the left have grown up so there is no way to miss left. There is also no way to miss right either because of the creek so again you have to find the fairway. If you don't, you are laying up or dropping. The green has water on two and a half sides which makes it a very tough golf hole. You have to hit a good drive, a good second, and the green is no piece of cake either with the slope in the middle. I would say that in a lot of the matches, if you make a par four, you have a good chance of walking off with the hole.
