A 421-yard dogleg right that can play 20 yards longer if the PGA elects to use the very back tee (on the front of No. 1), as they did in 2001. Players will most likely start on the No. 1 and No. 10 tees alternately every five minutes for the first two rounds, giving spectators the opportunity to view both starts from the same location. A pair of bunkers guard the left side of the fairway from 260-310 yards out. It will require a left to right tee shot to turn the corner and shorten the distance for the second shot. Most likely a short iron shot will be played into a deep three club green that can be hard to get close depending on the hole location. A large bunker guards the front left side and entire left side of the green. Players need to take extra care to guard against long or left as shots winding up in either of these places can spell disaster. Stay below the hole.
