ISPS Handa Women's Australian Open Opportunity
A bunker in the middle of the fairway forces players to make a strategic decision off the tee. The safe approach is down the left side and the aggressive, but risky approach, takes on the trap and favors the right side of the fairway. On a player’s second shot, bunkering further down the fairway forces another strategic decision to play safe or go for the green.
