I played at Yale last week and thought you all should get a look at the ninth green. This is the hole where Ben Hogan once found his tee shot, a roughly 200 yard shot from an elevated tee over water, on one plateau while the flag was on the other...NO worries for Mr. Hogan...take out a wedge and FLY that ball to the other side! Apocryphal? Maybe..A realistic alternative to a crazy hard putt? ONly if the greenskeeper and members aren't in view!
My ball rolled past the pin located on the front tier and came to rest on the fringe. Missed the birdie putt of roughly 20 feet, but made the par putt! Rare for me on this hole..
