Hole 6 - Par 4, 393 yards

One of the best looking holes on at TPC Sawgrass, a short yet dangerous one. A massive bunker down most of the left side and water if the players hit it way off line. A slightly elevated green guarded by palm trees and bunkers. The slopey green can cause some trouble when it comes to the putt.

Hole 7 - Par 4, 451 yards

Standing on the tee, the players eyes will be drawn to the sand running down the left and water even further left of that. Missing right will cause serious trouble, with plenty of rough and grass traps where balls seem to bury themselves. Two small bunkers sit front and left of the green. Players such as Jon Rahm who hit a fade will find this tee shot easier than some.

Hole 8 - Par Par 3, 237 yards

A challenging par 3, with it being the longest of its kind on the course. There are 10 bunkers and multiple drop-offs on this hole, so missing the green will cause the players to bring out the very best in their short game if they want to walk away with a par here.

Hole 9 - Par 5, 583 yards

A great chance for birdie at the final hole of the front 9. The tee shot is a fairly simple one, but hitting the green in two is a challenge as it brings the trees into play.The green features a severe slope from the front to the back right and difficult bunker sits around the left and back of the green. The smart way to birdie this hole is by laying up and letting the wedge do the work.

Hole 10 - Par 4, 424 yards

A dogleg par 4 to kick off the back nine. A large bunker awaits anything left and dense trees to the right. This is another par 4 where accuracy is the key so expect to see a lot of fairway woods instead of drivers. Miss the green left and the it's a lottery with how your ball will sit in the grassy mounds. The position of the drive will be crucial for the approach shot.
