Hole 2 at PGA West (TPC Stadium course) in La Quinta, California 92253 is a par 4 that plays 371 yards from the Championship tees. It has an elevated tee box and doglegs slightly to the left. The fairway width averages 33 yards, with 8 bunkers scattered throughout and 5% of them located on or around the green. This hole can be tricky for those playing from the longer tees due to its length; however, there is plenty of room off the tee if you can keep your ball straight. Local weather conditions will also have an effect on this hole as altitude, temperature and wind may impact ball flight conditions depending on season. During warmer months you may need to club up due to increased air density while during cooler months it might be beneficial to play more conservatively because of decreased air density. For players hitting a driver ~217 yards, 7 iron ~140 yards and pitching wedge ~120 yards it would be wise to use your driver off the tee before taking out either a 7 iron or hybrid for approach shots into this relatively large green area measuring 7585 sq ft.
