How to Play the Hole
The pros will advise you to not be fooled by the yardage on Cypress Bend’s hole 3. The tee shots should favor the right side to avoid fairway bunker on the left, and a solid tee shot will set up the opportunity to reach the green in two. Your lay-up shot must be placed between the bunkers that guard both sides of the fairway. Be sure to check the hole location for the approach shot to avoid the bunkers and water guarding the right side of the green.
