Torrey Pines Golf Course, La Jolla, California – This week in La Jolla, the PGA will be playing both the North and the South Course at legendary Torrey Pines. The par-72 South Course will be played three of the four rounds and measures an impressive 7,698 yards. It is a bombers track and accuracy off the tee will also be important due to the penalizing rough. The North Course, a 7,258-yard par 72, will be played by each player once on either Thursday or Friday, and usually plays around 3 strokes easier than its counterpart.
Some stats to consider this week: Driving Accuracy, Driving Distance (less important than accuracy), Par-5 scoring, SG Tee-to-Green.
