Quail Hollow Hole By Hole Guide: Hole 5
Hole 5- Par 4- 449 Yards
Quail Hollow hosts the 2017 USPGA Championship, here is a guide to the fifth hole.
The fifth hole on the course will offer a new challenge for the players as it has undergone significant changes since 2016.
It is due these implementations that it now plays down a shallow valley which sits up unevenly on a hill near the sixth tee.
On top of this it has been been made tougher by being changed from a par-5 to par-4.
There is also a slight dogleg right which, along with the bunker to the right hand side of the green, will make it tough for most of the golfers to land it on the putting surface.
Depending on the organisers choice of pin position, this could be made even worse as the players may have to take a bunker shot in a an effort to get it near the hole.
