Hole 5 at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club in Southhampton, New York 11968 is a slightly dogleg right par 5 with an impressive distance of 487 yards for the men's tees and 529 yards from the championship tees. The fairway width is approximately 50 yards wide and there are 12 bunkers in total, 1% of which are greenside. With local weather that can vary across four seasons, golfers must be prepared to adjust their strategy depending on altitude, temperature and/or wind conditions which may affect ball flight. In order to reach this hole in two shots, drivers should aim for the left side of the fairway while avoiding any potential hazards along the way; hitting a 7 iron off your drive will give you a good chance to make it onto the green with your second shot. However if you find yourself too far away from the green after your first shot then pitching wedge could get you close enough for an easy putt or chip-in!

Playing Tips:

1. Aim for the left side of the fairway with your driver to give yourself a better chance at reaching the green in two shots.

2. Be mindful of potential hazards along the way and adjust your strategy accordingly depending on local weather conditions such as altitude, temperature and wind speed which can affect ball flight.

3. If you find yourself too far away from the green after your first shot then consider using a pitching wedge to get you close enough for an easy putt or chip-in!

4. Use a 7 iron off your drive if you want to make it onto the green with your second shot but be aware that this is not always possible due to varying weather conditions that may require more or less club selection than usual.
