Golf Monthly takes an in-depth look at Royal Liverpool, the host for the 2014 Open Championship.

Hole 9 – Par 3 – 197 yards

Like the first par 3 hole, the narrow green is also very well protected by reconfigured bunkers, swales and run-offs. Key to doing well on this hole is to steer clear of the gully on the left. With the refurbishment, the right-hand bunker has been significantly reduced in size however it is prone to collecting tee shots that fall down the right side.
