Bay Hill Club & Lodge, Bay Hill, Florida – Bay Hill is a legendary track that will play as a 7400-yard, par 72 this week. Ample water hazards and tall, thick rough will make for a nice challenge as well as force some drivers to stay in the bag on a few tee boxes. The par 5s will be ripe for scoring and the par 3s will play relatively long.
Bombers tend to do well here, but precision is more important. Upon looking at the numbers it is immediately noticeable that Tiger Woods’ return to form has skewed the odds some. That’s probably because he’s won four of his five starts at Bay Hill (the last one being in 2013).
This week we’ll be looking at SG Approach, Par-5 Scoring, SG Putting, and some course history (there’s tons of it).
