Valspar's toughest stretch: The Snake Pit
Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

The Copperhead Course at Innisbrook Resort is home to this week's Valspar Championship, and includes a three-hole finishing stretch aptly named the "Snake Pit."

Here's an overview of holes 16 to 18 at the Copperhead Course.

Par-4 16th, 475 yards - "Moccasin"

The stretch begins with one of the toughest holes on the PGA Tour - one protected by water at the bend of a dogleg. Players will need both power and precision off the tee, while also navigating a slightly elevated green. John Daly shot 90 in the second round of the 2014 tournament, and 12 of those strokes came at the 16th hole.

Par-3 17th, 215 yards - "The Rattler"

Players will have to embrace the largest green on the course, but will also need to hit it first. The putting surface is protected by a large bunker on the right side, two smaller ones on the left, and one behind the green. Plus, the pear-shaped green has a false front and is just 15 yards wide at the entrance - leaving no room for error.

Par-4 18th, 445 yards - "Copperhead"

The final hole features a straightaway tee shot to a narrow fairway that's protected by bunkers on either side of the landing area. The approach shot is roughly 40 feet uphill to a putting surface, defended by a large trap in the front and a bunker behind the green that slopes severely back-to-front.
