Approaching the Seventh by Larry Dyke
Tell Me More
The seventh at Pebble Beach is one of the most challenging and unforgiving holes in golf. Surrounded on three sides by the Pacific and sand traps, your approach shot has to be accurate which can be difficult with the winds wrecking havoc along the shore. This hole also proves to be one of the most beautiful with blue ocean, purple hills and a rocky beachfront where white caps and bubbling foam abound. DF

It’s an expression of what I think the true answer to life is.”
A native Texan, Dyke is the consummate painter of what makes the Lone Star State so unique. As the title of one of his paintings, the artist chose "Deep in the Heart…” of his native land.
