August 20, 2013

The ninth hole at Champions Run annually ranks among the easiest par-4s on the Web.com Tour. This driveable 315-yard hole offers players the chance to go for the green and have an eagle putt. Chip Beck made a hole-in-one on this hole in 2003, and Jason Gore eagled it on his way to a course-record 59 in 2005.

Since the tournament began in 1996, the hole has played as the easiest par-4 10 times, including the past seven consecutive years.
