No. 1 - "Cut the Corner"

446 yards, Par 4

This slight dogleg left is a deceptive par 4. From the tee, the hole may appear tame, but the approach shot will be dramatically different from what players experienced in the 2000 PGA Championship because of the addition of two greenside bunkers – one front right and one back left. The front-right bunker is a visually intimidating sight for approach shots to front-left or back-right hole locations. The left bunker is positioned to gobble up errant shots aimed at the back portion of the green.
