Hole 14 at PGA West is a challenging par 4 of 389 yards from the championship tees, 372 yards from the pro tees, 348 yards from the men's tees, 328 yards from the women's tees and 293 yards for senior women. This hole features a slight dogleg right with an average fairway width of 37 yards. The green area measures 6633 square feet and there are four bunkers surrounding it (2% of total).

The tee shot should be played to favor either side of this slight dogleg. Depending on wind conditions and seasonality, golfers might find themselves hitting anything between a driver or 3 wood off the tee to set up their approach shot. In summer months when temperatures can reach over 100°F in La Quinta, California 92253 coupled with high altitudes that will cause your ball flight to fly further than usual, players may need to play conservatively off the tee as they don't want to risk going too far down this narrow fairway.

The approach shot will depend on how aggressively you hit your drive; if you're able to get within 140-120 yard range then you'll likely be looking at using either a 7 iron or pitching wedge depending on what distance you have left after your drive. Greenside bunkers provide additional challenges as well so accuracy is key here; aim towards more open areas around the green rather than directly at pin locations if possible!

Club Recommendations

Finally, the green itself is quite large at 6633 square feet so there are plenty of options for finding your way onto it. Putting can be tricky here as well due to subtle breaks in the terrain, so make sure you read the greens carefully and take into account any wind conditions before deciding on how hard or soft to hit your putts.
