Play on the par 3 holes during this week could well decide the winner of the 93rd PGA Championship. No. 4 is a scenic start to some very challenging par 3s. A large lake guards the front of the green, surrounds the entire left side, and wraps around the back. A new tee has been added to offer 15 more yards. If the wind blows, it wreaks havoc on a player's club selection. Most players will hit a mid to long iron into a long narrow green that possesses tough hole locations on the left side both front and back. The back-left hole location can stretch this hole to 230 yards. The tendency is to favor the right side of the green but putting from right to left is lightning quick. If the hole is located front right, you can look for some birdies if players have the nerve to flirt with the water. Otherwise 3 is a good score on this demanding par 3.
