Highlights

• Since 2003, the 18th green has been the toughest to hit in regulation on the course (GIR 42.1%).

• Not only is the 18th the toughest green to hit on the course but it's also the 2nd toughest to salvage par when missing the green. Since 2003, 57.9% of all second shots have missed the 18th green in regulation. Of those missed shots, only 43.5% have managed to save par.

• With water left, players have a tendency to bail out right from the tee. Since 2003, there have been 900 approach shots from the right rough. Only 20.3% of those players hit the green in regulation (1 in every 5 players hit the green from the right rough).

• The 18th hole has ranked inside the top 50 toughest holes on TOUR in 15 of the last 27 years on TOUR.
