The 14th at Bandon Trails is awful. Played it several times and there is nothing controversial about it. The green holds no shot, not even wedges or chips. The 8th on Bandon Trails is a great short Par-4. One a lot of players can make 2 or 6 on and understand is was their own doing.

I've played the 10th at Riviera and it is all about angles. No matter where you hit your drive the second shot is touchy and either over the bunker to an nothing of an oblong green or just coming from a bad angle to try and hit a tiny target.

I played BT once and hit driver up high on 14...held it up there, had a little pitch into the green, held the green and made 4. Same with #16 on BD in two tries...up left, pitch on , two putts. Maybe I was too aloof to realize what I was doing. Doak, Coore/Crenshaw and Kidd understand the shortie and its value. The one way to kill it is to put a death hazard (like water) in front of it. Old Course has at least five great short par fours, with #1 the only one that has water in front. I agree with your conclusion that a ... conclusion should be a shortie, to leave the player with a chance at glory and/or a good closing hole.
