Hole 17 at Bradenton Country Club is a challenging par 5 that requires both distance and accuracy. From the championship tees, this hole measures 535 yards with a slight dogleg right. As the number one ranked golfer in the world, your player will need to utilize their driver to reach the fairway off the tee, which should be manageable for them at approximately 217 yards. However, they must also take into account any potential wind or temperature changes that may affect their ball flight.

The approach shot on this hole will likely require a mid-iron due to its length of over 500 yards. Your player's average distance for a 7 iron is around 140 yards, so they may want to consider using it as their second shot if they have hit an accurate drive. They can then use their pitching wedge from about 120 yards out for an easier third shot onto the green.

Speaking of greens, Hole 17 has one of the largest putting surfaces on the course at approximately 7155 square feet. The green is well guarded by three bunkers strategically placed near its edges and only making up about one percent of total bunkers on this hole.

It's important to note that water comes into play on this hole as well, adding another layer of challenge and strategy for your player. They will need to carefully plan each shot in order to avoid any hazards and successfully navigate through this par five.

Overall, Hole 17 offers plenty of opportunities for birdies but also presents some risk-reward scenarios that could result in higher scores if not approached with caution and precision. With proper club selection and strategic decision-making based on weather conditions throughout all four seasons in Bradenton, Florida (including altitude changes), your player has what it takes to conquer this difficult yet exciting par five.
