Greetings from Superstition Mountain, Arizona, where there's now a Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course

From Retiring Guy's collection

Jack Nicklaus: Know When To Aim At The Flag. (Golf Digest, 4/11/2017)
This is a fairly straightforward concept—except when it isn't. With certain green complexes, the best strategy can be to aim somewhere other than the middle. The par-3 fourth on the Prospector Course at Superstition Mountain (illustrated), a layout north of Scottsdale that I designed with my son, Gary, is a prime example. A big ridge runs through the center, effectively making it play like two smaller greens.
