Bank of Hope Founders Cup - Wildfire Golf Club at JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge ResortThis hole is a reachable par 5 which presents good opportunities for birdies and eagles late in the round. A desert area borders the entire left side, and this must be avoided at all costs, but the fairway here is wide enough for the player to be aggressive off the tee. A well-protected green will provide a reasonable birdie chance for those who play the hole strategically. If the wind is favorable, the green light is definitely on here for either birdie or eagle.
Kia Classic - Aviara Golf ClubThis is a reachable but challenging par 4 where risk and reward lurk in equal measure on and around the green, which is hourglass-shaped with water lying in wait to the left. This hole, a dogleg left, has a generous landing area off the tee but can become especially tricky because of its sloping fairway and uneven lies. Accurate club selection for an approach into an exceptionally deep green is critical, and care must be taken when the pin is cut left.
ANA Inspiration - Mission Hills Country Club , Dinah Shore Tournament CourseThis par 5 will give Players an advantage who go for it and find the green in two. The risk comes in because the fairway is narrow off the tee. Varying pin placements increase the difficulty on the green.
