The Copperhead course at Innisbrook held its own on Thursday. The Snake Pit had some bite, too.

The total stroke average for Round 1 of the Tampa Bay Championship presented by EverBank was 73.071, or 2.071 strokes over par -- which ranks as the highest first-round scoring average on the PGA TOUR this season. The second-highest was at the Northern Trust Open at Riviera, which played to an average of 72.211 (+1.211).

Nos. 16, 17 and 18 at Copperhead -- also known as the Snake Pit -- tied for the third most-difficult holes on the golf course in the first round. All three holes played 41 strokes over par.

Here is a rundown of the stats on the Snake Pit:
