Bethpage Black Course

A hole-by-hole look at Bethpage Black Course

HOLE 1: | par 4 | 430 yards

The opening shot from an elevated tee bends sharply to the right, with a cluster of tees right of the fairway that will block any approach. The left side is preferred, for a deep bunker guards the front right of the green. The front third of the green, the smallest on the course, slopes sharply, and approach shots with too much spin could roll off.

Tiger Woods' card in 2002: 4-3-4-5.

Mike Davis says: "If you can hit the fairway, you're home free."
