Hole locations for the second round of the PGA Championship present some formidable challenges for players on day two of the PGA Championship. If there’s anyone who knows the intricacies of TPC Harding Park and how these pin placements will impact the outcome of play today it’s the course’s General Manger, Tom Smith. Here are his insights on which holes will present the toughest tests.

Par 3, 8th
“Aggressive shots will bring on the grass bunker and a long shot will put them in long rough behind. Plus, that area mystifies the eye when finding the putting line.”

Par 4, 13th
“It’s a fair pin but will bring the deep bunker into play. There will be a lot of longer putts to be had on that location.”

Par 4, 16th
“It’s right up front so we might see some guys trying to drive the green.”

“It’s almost the same location to where Tiger made his putt to win his match in the Presidents Cup, which secured the Cup for USA.”
