  • Muirfield 8th Green

    Approach to the 8th Green

Place the tee shot correctly and this becomes a relatively easy par four, but the critical factor is knowing where to put it. The carry over the cluster of bunkers on the dog leg corner is 284 yards. Most players opt for a three-wood or long-iron for position in the left half of the fairway to set up a shot over the cross bunkers to a green that drops away at the back and left.
