Hole 4 at Pebble Beach Golf Links, a 327-yard par 4, presents a slight dogleg right with a moderately wide fairway. The key is to aim just left of center off the tee for optimal positioning, while factoring in the seven bunkers, 6% of which are greenside, and a large green area of 4544 square feet. Seasonal weather, especially temperature and wind variations, plays a significant role in club selection and shot execution.

Club Recommendations

High Handicapper: High handicappers should focus on a controlled tee shot, possibly using a hybrid or a fairway wood for better accuracy. This strategy aims for a favorable position on the fairway, avoiding hazards. The second shot, likely with a mid to high iron, should target the middle-left portion of the green, accounting for weather conditions. Choosing the right club for the approach is crucial, especially considering the effect of colder temperatures on ball flight and the varying elevation around the green.

Medium Handicapper: Medium handicappers should use a driver or a 3-wood off the tee, aiming for precision rather than maximum distance. The goal is to land on the fairway, setting up an approach shot of around 120-140 yards. A mid-iron or a short iron is suitable for the second shot, depending on the exact yardage and pin location. The approach should be tailored to the green's size and the day's specific weather conditions, including wind and temperature changes.

Low Handicapper: Low handicappers can take a more aggressive approach with a driver, aiming to maximize distance while maintaining accuracy towards the left side of the fairway. This can set up a shorter approach, potentially with a short iron or a wedge, allowing for a precise shot to the green. It's essential to factor in the wind conditions and temperature when selecting the club for the approach, aiming to capitalize on the large green size while navigating the bunkers effectively.
