About the Cambia Portland Classic
This week focuses on the par-5, 12th hole at Columbia Edgewater Country Club.
Cambia Portland Classic Opportunity
This par-5 is a three-shot hole for all but the very longest hitters. To reach the green in regulation requires three solid shots played between tree lines and a large embankment on the right. The green is large but can be very challenging for up -and-downs if the player ends up out of position
Cambia Portland Classic Insight
Aon Insight - is that the success of this hole centers around the tee shot. An optimal line off the tee is left center and anything hit right will result in a difficult recovery to get home in three. In 2018, the field recorded a score of birdie or better only 27% of the time and par or better 92%.
Cambia Portland Classic Advantage
Restraint and strategic approaches can make this hole a relatively stress-free par. As a three-shot hole for most players, setting up a third shot from a player's preferred yardage is the best opportunity for birdie on this long hole.
