Garrity: You can't call number 12 the best hole out there. It's a great fan favorite, but it's so dependent on a completely unpredictable wind pattern. It's all guesswork.

Van Sickle: That takes some of the skill out of the shot selection. Remember the study that SI commissioned, and those scientists determined that the wind often gusts in opposite directions and produces tricky crosswinds. It was too much chance, not enough skill. I have to agree with Garrity on number 10. The slope of that hill is astonishing, and the green is framed by pines and flowers.

Shipnuck: Plus it's got that beautiful Mackenzie bunker down there, which isn't really in play, but it's so dramatic to look at as you walk toward the green.
