Hole 17 at PGA West (TPC Stadium course) in La Quinta, California 92253 is a challenging par 3 from the Championship tees. At 168 yards, it's one of the longest holes on the course and requires an accurate tee shot to avoid greenside bunkers which make up 1% of total green area. The hole plays slightly uphill so altitude and wind can have an effect on ball flight conditions depending on the season. In summer months, temperatures may be higher than normal but with less wind compared to winter when cooler temperatures are accompanied by gusty winds that could affect your approach shot accuracy. During spring and fall expect moderate temperatures with varying wind speeds that will also need to be taken into consideration when making club selection decisions for both your tee shot and approach shots. For players hitting a driver ~217 yards, 7 iron ~140 yards and pitching wedge ~120 yards; this hole would require a mid-iron or hybrid off the tee followed by an 8 iron or 9 iron for their approach shots in order to find success here.

Club Recommendations

1. Use a mid-iron or hybrid off the tee to ensure accuracy and avoid greenside bunkers.

2. Take into account the altitude, wind speeds, temperature and season when selecting clubs for both your tee shot and approach shots - club selection is key on this hole!

3. Aim towards the center of the green as it plays slightly uphill which can affect ball flight conditions depending on season/weather conditions.

4. Utilize yardage markers to help gauge distance from tee box to pin - drivers ~217 yards, 7 iron ~140 yards and pitching wedge ~120 yards are good reference points for players looking to hit their target distances with precision.

5. Be aware of gusty winds in winter that could affect approach shot accuracy; choose lower lofted clubs such as 8 iron or 9 iron for your approach shots if needed due to windy conditions
