About the TOTO Japan Classic
The par-5, 12th hole is a dogleg left that requires sound strategy and execution from tee to green. Players must avoid the fairway bunker on the right to have a chance to go for the green in two, with the water short and left of the green forcing some of the field to lay up and play as a three-shot hole.
TOTO Japan Classic Key Decision
If players find the fairway, the critical decision will be to lay up short of the water or go for the green in two. If laying up short of the water, players will have over 100 yards in for their third shot, with bunkers surrounding the green.
TOTO Japan Classic Insight
From the fairway, 34% of the field is expected to go for the green in two, with around 7% finding the green successfully. Players who find the right bunker off the tee are expected to play the hole over par.
