The 8th at Southport is a good three shot par 5.
The double dog leg doesn’t allow you to feel safe over any shot. The longer hitters need to carry the corner on the right side with the drive or risk running out of room on the left. The best play for your second is to carry the big tree on the left side of the fairway leaving you with a short iron into this large green. This hole is not a realistic eagle opportunity for even the really big hitters. The green is guarded at the front with water both left and right. Be careful or your score card may receive some damage.
