A closer look at the first hole at Valhalla Golf Club in Kentucky – host of the 2014 USPGA Championship…

Valhalla hole by hole guide:
Hole 1 – Par 4 – 446 yards

Valhalla starts with a relatively long par-4 that’s been slightly modified since the last  USPGA Championship in 2000. Most players will hit driver off the tee – a product of its length and generous fairway – but the approach presents the main challenge. Two new bunkers – one front right and one back left – serve to both reduce, visually, the size of the putting surface, and to snaffle errant approaches.
