Quail Hollow Hole By Hole Guide: Hole 18
Hole 18 – Par 4 – 494 Yards
Quail Hollow hosts the 2017 USPGA Championship, here is a guide to the eighteenth hole.
The 18th Hole, the final hole of the tournament and the last in “The Green Mile”, is seen as one of the hardest holes in professional golf.
Golfers must watch out for the bunker on the right and the snaking watercourse on the left when making their drive onto the fairway.
If on the fairway and in an adequate position, the second shot will still be tricky as in approaching the green you have to avoid two more bunkers and the same stream.
2003 showed the trickiness of the hole where David Toms with a hold of the lead took eight strokes to end the hole.
Despite this he still won the then-Quail Hollow Championship by two shots over Vijay Singh.
If something similar happens this time round, it will almost be impossible for someone to hold onto the lead looking at how even the field is.
