Quail Hollow hosts the 2017 USPGA Championship, here is a guide to the opening hole.

The first is the beginning of the group of holes which are 500 yards and over at Quail Hollow.

As part of the changes which took place on the course in 2016, this first hole offers a combination of the previous course’s first and second holes.

As a par 4 this would be a tough slog for many amateurs, but this is made even more prevalent with three large bunkers surrounding the putting green.

Expect the larger hitters such as Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson to struggle less on this hole, where they should be able to navigate around the tricky dogleg.
