The wind quarters into you, so it will move the ball left typically. This green is crazy and if the pin's on the lower level and you're on the upper level, it's hard to keep it on the green. A neat hole, kind of a double dogleg.
It will be a hole guys will go for in two if the wind's not blowing hard. They can get it down to where they're in the 230, 240 (yard) range out and probably hit it with a hybrid. It's a tough green to hit. A pin on the left side would be a little more inviting to try to go for it, even if you miss it in one of these bunkers. The bunkers out here are fairly easy to play out of, which I think guys will find that to their liking. When they go for a par 5 and miss it in a bunker, they probably figure they can get it up and down most of the time. A good opportunity here for birdie.

The club has named this hole, normally its 16th, for the late Ben Cowdery. A 10-time club champion who was a World-Herald executive, he was well-known for placing his second shot on the fairway shelf — known as "Cowdery Ledge" — 100 yards out, from where he often made birdie.
