I dont think this hole is the worst at all. Heres how I play it.
First Shot. You need to get a good tee shot on this hole. Maybe around 230 yds. Take a driver.
Second shot take a 3 wood, and put it straight down the middle. Aim left of the traps. You should be able to clear the brook crossing the fairway without to much trouble.
That should leave you a 3rd shot of around 60 - 70 yds, and you can put it fairly close from there and get your birdie.
Thats how I play it and its not really that hard.
Just get on that practice round and keep practicing, you'll get there.
