The 18th has proven to be a great finishing hole time and time again with playoff finishes in the 78th & 82nd PGA Championships as well as the down-to-the-wire finish in the 65th Senior PGA Championship. This par 5 has a large fairway bunker to the left of the landing zone and a spectacular water feature on the right. Most players can reach this hole in two shots but must avoid the large bunker guarding the entire front portion of the green as well as the smaller pot bunker to the left of the green. The green complex itself is very unique and provides three distinct putting areas shaped like a horseshoe, which provides a wonderful reminder of the equine heritage found in Kentucky.
