The legendary hole 6 at Idlewild is the definition of a placement hole. The ideal tee shot doesn't have to be long, but under control to get to the landing zone in such a way as to give you a line into the S bend approach. A Fariway driver or even a mid off the tee that gently fades right to left is the usual choice. Then, if you've got a controlled forehand (rhfh), you have a chance to get to the 'green' in 2 (or 3). Four is a good score on this hole for most players.

This is a relatively short but tricky par 5, but a birdie can be achieved without any long shots. Start with a left to right fade with a mid or fairway, followed by an accurate shot to the next gap. A shot around the opening at the second half of the fairway should set up for an open, gentle right ending shot to the green.
