HOLE 7: | par 4 | 525 yards
A par 5 for the public, this converted par got even longer with a new tee that is 36 yards farther back and the fairway was doubled in width to nearly 50 yards in spots. The tee shot is fairly straight, then the hole turns to the right. Tall trees down the right prevent players from cutting off any of the dogleg. The approach will be a long iron to one of the few greens that is not elevated, allowing for a ball to run up, a rarity at Bethpage. A large bunker guards the right side, with a smaller one left of the green.
Woods' card in 2002: 4-4-4-3.
Davis says: "Looking back at '02, that hole did not play right. The way the fairway was contoured, they couldn't drive the ball because there wasn't enough fairway to hit. We built a new tee to absolutely put driver in their hands, but the key is we doubled the width of the fairway."
