10 The hole can play even longer if the PGA uses a back tee, which is on the front of No. 1.A pair of bunkers guard the left side of the fairway starting at 260 yards off the tee, so a left-to-right shape tee shot is ideal.A short iron for the second shot should avoid a large bunker that guards left side of the green.11The hole begins as a sharp dogleg to the left, although it requires a 290-yard shot to carry the last bunker, and anything short on the left side is blocked out by treesGoing to the right is safer, but makes the hole longer. The approach is downhill.The green features bunkers to the left and water around the right side of the green.12Even with a new tee, this hole tends to play shorter because the drive is downhill. Anything in the fairway opens up the second shot that brings some risk-reward into play. Water is down the right side of the hole for the last 100 yards, which comes into play for those trying to reach in two. The landing area narrows for layup shots, so most will opt The green is small, shallow and guarded by three bunkers.13The shortest par 4 is a sharp dogleg to the right with tall pines lining both sides of the fairway, and while a bunker to the right steers shots to the left, anything too far left The trick is to hit enough club into the prevailing wind to clear the bunkers, but still stay below the hole on this heavily contoured green.The green is slightly elevated and guarded by a series of bunkers in front.14A slight dogleg to the right, with large bunkers protecting the left side up to 350 yards out and the right side up to 330 yards off the tee.The second shot is to the most severe green on the course, with large bunkers in front.The green is elevated and slopes from back to front.15Various teeing grounds give the PGA plenty of options in how long the hole will play. It was the toughest par 3 in 2001.The best way to play it is to copy David Toms in the third round of 2001, when he used a 5-wood for a hole-in-one.While it is slightly downhill, it features a large pond along the entire right side of the green.16The championship tee has been lengthened 35 yards, and bunkers added to protect the right side of the landing area starting at about 315 yards. Players will favor the left side, although they could be blocked by trees for the left hole locations.The second shot is slightly uphill to a mostly blind green, in which the player can see only the flag. The green is fast from back to front.17 The signature hole on the Highland's course, this has tee boxes set at various elevation levels, all of them overlooking a large lake that surrounds most of the greenAnything going long, which is likely because of the water, could find bunkers and leave a difficult shot back toward the water. This played the third-toughest in 2001.18The tee shot on this dogleg left should be right-to-left to make the longest par 4 a little bit shorter. Anything too far to the right might be too far away to reach the green, whiDavid Toms found this out in 2001, chose to lay up and made par to win the PGA.The undulating green is guarded by bunkers and has water front and to the right. This is no place to make birdie, rather to protect par.
