Golf Monthly takes an in-depth look at Royal Liverpool's course ahead of the 2014 Open Championship.

Hole 8 – Par 4 – 431 yards

Being the only blind drive on the course players need to find the right line from the tee to avoid the gorse bushes down the left of the fairway. If competitors successfully avoid the hedgerow and the bunker on the right of the fairway, a straightforward second shot to the large green is easily achievable. The green, which is protected by four bunkers, slopes upwards at the front, however towards the rear, it flattens out.
