HSBC Women’s World Championship About the Hole
The par-5, 13th hole at Sentosa Golf Club is a scoreable par-5 that players will try and take advantage of to keep up with the rest of the field. Players must navigate around the bunkers that line the fairway on both sides to give themselves a chance to reach the green in two shots.
HSBC Women’s World Championship Key Decisions
The key decision for players is whether to go for the green with their second shot or lay-up and try and get up and down. A drive in the right half of the fairway will give players the best angle into this dogleg left, but most players will have to hit a wood to the right-hand side of the green to have a change of reaching.
HSBC Women’s World Championship Insight
On the tee shot, power is rewarded far more than accuracy here: 63% of the field who found the short grass off the tee in 2022 gained almost zero strokes on the players who missed. Meanwhile, an extra 25 yards off the tee was worth one-tenth of a stroke on the field. Jin Young Ko played the hole in 3-under par on her way to victory.
