The course

TPC Harding Park is a par 70 course set at 7,234 yards in length. Located less than 10 miles south of the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, Harding Park will rely heavily on the wind as its main line of defense. Longer hitters will always have an advantage but early indications from the grounds suggest the rough will be very punitive, which will place a large emphasis on finding fairways.

While it's never hosted a major championship before, the venue played home to the 2005 WGC-Championship won by Woods, the 2015 WGC-Match Play when McIlroy claimed victory, and the 2009 Presidents Cup, where Tiger produced one of his most famous club twirls ever.
