SSB 8th hole Review -123 yards Par 3
The famous Postage Stamp hole is a simple hole provided the pro's hit the green! It's certainly a short hole, at 123 yards one of the shortest holes on the Major circuit.
This performance bet has only 2 elements to it - birdies and hole in ones. Much again depends upon the wind. There will be loads of birdies here if the wind behaves, but as it gets up, these will become much more difficult. Hole in ones are impossible to predict.
If you ignore hole in ones, the index will need around 110 birdies just to hit the spread. Bearing in mind that there will be 462 players playing the hole - that is 1 in 4 which is high.
Our view is that this bet hinges on Hole in Ones. If you think that there will be a Hole in One - BUY, if you think not SELL. Probably best left alone.
