Hole 16 - Inish More, Par 5, 555 yards/507 metres
Ian Woosnam: There is a double dogleg, left to right and then right to left. They call it the "greatest Par 5 in Ireland." I believe the back left tee will not be used so there is an opportunity to go for the green in two off the front tee. New trees down the right hand side, one at 280 yards and one at 300 yards, force the longer hitters to go down the left. The River Liffey runs in front of the green that has been extended so increasing the choice of pin positions. The green has also been redesigned. An exciting hole for The Ryder Cup as a lot of matches will be on the cusp of being won or lost coming to this hole. If you go for the green you're taking a risk; if you lay up you still have a good chance of making four.
