The 2009 Open Championship:
1st hole – Ailsa Craig, 354 yards, par 4
The first hole is a nice pleasant opening hole, although it depends on how the wind is blowing as to how it will play. Generally it will be a lay up off the tee with a hybrid or maybe even less; depending on how firm conditions are it maybe even a four or five iron off the tee and then an 8 iron second shot. It could be drivable downwind but that is a riskier proposition. Overall, a nice pleasant start.
