Padraig Harrington: A hole-by-hole guide to Carnoustie

Carnoustie No 1

1 - Cup

Par 4

Yards 406

“A generous par-4 to start off with, and a hole that’s going to be around 15 yards shorter this year to make room for a new grandstand around the tee. It’s just a lay up off the tee. There’s out of bounds and a burn down the left, so stay away from that and the right hand bunker and, from there, it’s only really an 8-iron or a 9-iron into a reasonably big green. Avoid the greenside bunker, make your par and off you go. It’s as straightforward as that.”
