A guide to the ninth hole at Quail Hollow ahead of the 2017 USPGA Championship.
Quail Hollow Hole By Hole Guide: Hole 9
Hole 9 - Par 4- 505 Yards
Quail Hollow hosts the 2017 USPGA Championship, here is a guide to the ninth hole.
The longest of all Par-4's on the course comes here on the 9th hole at 505 yards.
It is not just the longest but also the most difficult of all the Par-4s; expect many to struggle to keep par.
The bunker to the right of the fairway is very difficult to avoid whilst the second shot will have to be played with either a long iron or a fairway wood.
When the golfers get to the green it does not get that much easier.
Be careful to note that a lot of putts will go astray because of the difficult greens.
The organisers may look to take back some of the shots the golfers will have earned through the adjustable pin which can be put in a number of tricky positions.
