The shortest of the par fives at Hazeltine, the seventh presents a variety of options. During the 2002 PGA Championship, most players went for green in two when the hole played at 543 yards. That can be a dicey strategy, since the pond on the left prevents easy access and the green can be hard to hold if it is downwind. A different course of action was taken by Justin Leonard; he laid up four times and made four birdies on the strength of his wedge play. New fairway bunkers have been added on the left side of the tee shot landing area making the tee shot a greater test than in the past.
