Par 5, 580 yards
A shaved slope guarding the left side of the green
Why It Matters
At the 2010 AT&T, the bank left of the green was shaved down to the bottom of the hill, and you saw what happened to Paul Goydos (he made a 9 after some futile chips). The USGA requested that only the top half of the slope be shaved, so balls will stop sooner, giving guys more options. They can hit it higher, without worrying about the branches that come into play farther down the hill, or they can play a little bump-and-check. Then again, the green is going to be firmer, so balls not struck crisply can still run through the green, and you're back to square one.
