Volvik Founders Cup About the Hole
This week focuses on the 15th hole at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge, Wildfire Golf Club, a reachable par-5 which presents good opportunities for birdies and eagles late in the round.
Volvik Founders Cup Key Decision
The key decision here focuses on whether a player goes for the green in two or plays the hole with a three-shot strategy.
The elevated green on this par-5 is well protected by greenside bunkers and has run-off areas on all sides, making it hard to hold the green. This will be a key factor for players when making the decision on their second shot.
