Hole 8 at TPC at Scottsdale 'Stadium Course' is a long par 4/5, measuring 470 yards from the championship tees and 395 yards from the women's tees. It has a slight dogleg left with an approximate fairway width of 31 yards, so accuracy off the tee will be rewarded. There are 3 bunkers in play on this hole, two of which are greenside. The green area measures 9028 sq ft and there is 2% bunker coverage around it.

Given its length and layout, Hole 8 can be approached in different ways depending on your skill level and playing conditions (which may vary throughout the year due to local weather). In general windy days can significantly affect ball flight distance due to altitude for this course located in Scottsdale, Arizona 85255; while during summer temperatures may reach over 100F degrees making it more challenging to hit long distances drives or approach shots accurately.

For players hitting driver ~217 yards, 7 iron ~140 yards and pitching wedge ~120 yards like our golfer we're giving advice to here - we recommend aiming slightly right off the tee as far as possible while avoiding any potential hazards that could lead to penalty strokes or lost balls; then using either a mid-iron or hybrid club for your second shot towards the green depending on how much risk you want to take when approaching it; finally chipping onto the green with a pitching wedge if needed given its large size.

Club Recommendations

For players with a longer drive, we recommend using driver off the tee and aiming for the left side of the fairway as much as possible. This will give you more room to work with your second shot while avoiding any potential hazards along the way. Once on approach, use either a hybrid or mid-iron club depending on how close you are to the green. Finally chipping onto it with a pitching wedge if needed given its large size.

In all cases, be sure to take into account wind direction and speed when selecting clubs off the tee and for your second shot; also pay special attention to sand bunkers surrounding it in order to avoid penalty strokes or lost balls due to bad luck shots that may end up there.
