Overview with Gingerbets

The par-70, 7,244-yard championship course at TPC Southwind was built by famed architect Ron Prichard, with input from Hubert Green and Fuzzy Zoeller. There are undulating zoysia fairways, champion Bermuda greens, and multiple lakes, streams, and ponds on the golf course.In January 2012, TPC Southwind was ranked No. 23 in Golf World magazine’s Exclusive PGA Tour Course Rankings. The golf course has long been rated one of the more challenging courses on the PGA Tour schedule.

 

Considered one of the best courses the players attend all year round, here is some insight into the keyholes. The 165-yard, par-3 11th hole, which is considered by some to be a smaller counterpart of TPC Sawgrass’ legendary 17th Island Green, requires a short iron over water to a small island green; and the 231-yard, par-3 14th, which is frequently listed as one of the toughest par-3 holes on the PGA TOUR, and the course’s spectacular 461-yard, par-4 finishing hole, requiring a tee shot played alongside a water hazard that protects the entire left side of the fairway.

 

5 Key skillsets required

  1. SG around the green – This week’s events will require a world-class short game as the greens are small and even the best players in the world will be missing them on their approach shots 25% of the time or more.
  2. GIR – always excel in this area putting less stress on their short game over the 4 days.
  3. SG approach – ties in with GIR importance, hitting it close helps more so this week as when you get the opportunity to attack you must take advantage.
  4. Par 4 scoring 450-500 yards – with 6 holes in this range, players who play long Par4’s well will separate themselves from the field.
  5. SG Putting on the bermudagrass greens. This is a specialist surface which many plays don’t like.
