Torrey Pines South Course - Hole #17

Par 4 - 442 / 429 / 419 / 400 / 347 yards - Handicap 4 / 8

Medium-length par-4, guarded by trees and a canyon all along the left side. In 2001, Phil Mickelson bounced his tee shot off one of these trees to make the fairway, still made double-bogey but it was good enough to beat Frank Lickliter's triple-bogey at the playoff to win the Buick Invitational. Elevated tee provides a beautiful view of the hole ahead and of the spectacular surroundings behind and to the left. Only one large fairway bunker on the right. The green is somewhat more elevated than it seems, so taking half to one more club for the approach will ensure you hit the wide green. Keep it right off the tee.
