Talking about the famous 8th hole at Royal Troon, the Postage Stamp, Kieron says "Into the wind I’ve hit 5 and 6 irons, yet downwind it can be just a touch with a sand wedge" he adds "there is only one way to play the hole: pick a club for the middle of the green and hit it. There is no alternative!"

He classes his career highlight as a hole in one at the Postage Stamp in 2008, a gentle swipe downwind with a 52 degree wedge – his 7th in total.
