The second "catch up" hole on the front nine presents you with a very slight dogleg left where where a tee shot down the left side is rewarded with some extra roll.
However, you really don't want to be in the treeline. Some folks figure it's better to give up the extra distance for the safety of the right side.
The bunker on the left isn't the only thing that guards this green. The green is somewhat "domed" and off-center shots can run either direction. The putting is a little bit of a challenge, too, since many putts will appear to break up a hill (it's a really difficult green to read).
