A closer look at the 13th hole at Valhalla Golf Club in Kentucky – host of the 2014 USPGA Championship…

Valhalla hole by hole:
Hole 13 – Par 4 – 350

After two tough holes, the 13th presents a real birdie opportunity. It’s all about spin control on the approach, though. There is simply no excuse for missing the fairway, but many balls will topple off the island green – built on top of 20 feet-high boulders – and into water, even with a wedge. That said, if players judge spin and distance correctly, numerous birdies are in the offing.
