Per River Oaks Head Pro Scott Taylor:

“Great hole here. We have a waste bunker all throughout the middle of this par 3, so it’s all carry.

“There is a front bunker on this green as well as a very deep bunker to the right of this green as well as a grass bunker, so I definitely recommend not erring to the right of this green. It’s going to be a difficult up-and-down from there.

“The green slopes from back to front, and you can get a pretty lengthy putt as this is a big green. Just be sure to get it up a little long and to the left on this green, and you should be able to walk out of there with a 3.”
