Hole 8 at Torrey Pines Golf Club's South Course is a par 3, measuring 176 yards from the championship tees, 163 yards from the pro tees, 155 yards for men's tees, 146 yards for seniors' tees and 92 yards for women's tees. This hole has an overall handicap of 17 and offers a challenging approach to golfers of all levels. The green area covers 9028 sq ft with 2 bunkers covering 11% of the total area.

When playing this hole in cooler temperatures or during windy conditions it may be wise to use more club than normal as ball flight can be affected by these elements. With your driver averaging 217 yards off the tee, this should leave you with approximately a 7 iron or pitching wedge into the green depending on which set of tee boxes you are using. Be careful when approaching as there are two greenside bunkers that could come into play if you're not accurate enough with your shot selection!

Club Recommendations

When selecting a club, take into consideration the wind direction and strength as well as the pin position. Aim for the middle of the green to give yourself a chance at birdie or par. Avoid going long on your shot selection, as there is significant trouble beyond this hole's green. The bunkers are also deep so be sure to factor in extra distance when hitting from them. Finally, practice your short game around these greenside hazards before you tee off - knowing how to get out of them will save you strokes!
