Strategy, solid data and sound advice are key ingredients to conquering the most challenging courses on the PGA TOUR.

Episode 1

Episode 1: The par-5 18th at Torrey Pines (South)

The site of some of Tiger’s most iconic victories, the finishing hole of the Farmers Insurance Open is also one of the hardest fairways to hit on TOUR. How does THE G.O.A.T. strategize his way to making birdie here 48 percent of the time?

Episode 2

Episode 2: The par-4 10th at Riviera Country Club

Tiger calls the drivable 10th hole at Riviera, the home of the Genesis Invitational, “One of the coolest par 4s we’ll ever play.” As he explains here, there’s a lot more to this iconic risk-reward design than meets the eye.

Episode 3

Episode 3: The par-5 16th at Bay Hill Club and Lodge

Tiger Woods has won eight(!) Arnold Palmer invitational titles at Bay Hill—more professional victories than he’s captured at any other tournament venue in the world. But that doesn’t mean he couldn’t have won more; he feels the 16th hole in particular has “cost him the tournament” in the past when he didn’t play it smartly enough.

Episode 4

Episode 4: The par-4 14th at Quail Hollow Club

Sometimes the most benign-looking holes can be the most duplicitous. For Tiger Woods, the short par-4 14th at Quail Hollow, home of the Wells Fargo Championship, sets up beautifully for a “hammer-draw 3-wood” off the tee, but a deceptive green and creative pin placements always end up influencing his decision-making.

Episode 5

Episode 5: The par-5 15th at Muirfield Village Golf Club

The 560-yard 15th hole at Jack Nicklaus’ Muirfield Village, the home of the Memorial Tournament, used to be considered an “easy” par 5 that five-time Memorial champ Tiger Woods could reach in two with a driver and a 7-iron back in the late 90s. But designer Nicklaus has transformed the hole several times in the years since, and in this episode, Tiger takes us through all the new obstacles the players have to take into consideration in 2021.
