Hole 14, a 572-yard par 5 with a slight dogleg right at Pebble Beach, presents a challenge from all tee positions, with distances of 560, 548, and 434 yards for the Pro, Men’s, and Women’s tees respectively. The fairway, approximately 50 yards wide and hosting 7 bunkers, demands an accurate tee shot. The green, guarded by two deep bunkers on the left and one short on the right, slopes back to front. Weather conditions, including high summer temperatures and gusty winds in winter, significantly influence club selection and shot execution.

Club Recommendations

High Handicapper: High handicappers should focus on a safe tee shot aimed at the center of the fairway, using a club that balances distance with accuracy, like a fairway wood or a hybrid. The approach should be with a mid to high iron, considering the green's slope and bunker layout. Weather conditions, particularly wind, must be factored into both tee and approach shots, adjusting club selection and aim accordingly.

Medium Handicapper: Medium handicappers might use a driver off the tee but should prioritize fairway placement over distance. The approach, likely with a mid-iron or a hybrid, should account for the green's slope and the surrounding bunkers. In windy conditions, adjusting trajectory and club choice is crucial to navigate the hole effectively.

Low Handicapper: Low handicappers can take advantage of their driving distance, aiming for a strategic position on the fairway. The second shot requires precision, potentially with a long iron or a fairway wood, to manage the green's slope and bunker defenses. Adapting to the local weather, especially the challenging wind conditions, is key for successful shot planning.

"The most important shot in golf is the next one."
