Honda LPGA Thailand About the Hole
This week focuses on Siam Country Club's 15th hole, a risk-reward par-4 that presents a different scoring opportunity depending on the tee box used.
Honda LPGA Thailand Opportunity
From the forward tees the hole plays 265 yards and is reachable for most players in the field. When attempting to drive the narrow, angled green, players must avoid the severe green-side bunker.
From the back tees players are presented with two key challenges to analyze: a tree in the fairway that must be avoided, and a carry of 225 yards - the longest on the LPGA Tour - to clear the water and set up a short wedge approach.

Honda LPGA Thailand Advantages
Players will approach 15 with an aggressive game plan in mind and go for the green. The risk is worth the reward and it will come down to confidence and execution.
While all players in the field will take an aggressive approach off the tee, the longer hitters are able to minimize the risk of the forced carry and take the water completely out of play.
