GOLF HOLE #1 - NUMBER 16 - TPC SCOTTSDALE - 20,000 DRUNKS & CORP TENTS

16th hole at TPC Scottsdale

Since 2006

Golf fans will often debate which they would rather see more on Sunday: tougher pin placements to challenge the contenders trying to either make a move or hold on to their lead; or easier pins to encourage movement atop the leaderboard.

The latter seems to be the theory adhered to at 16: only once over the last 10 years has 16 played most difficult over the course of the week on Sunday. Seven of the last 10 years, the hole has played to an average score below par in the final round.

From 2006-2009, the 16th hole got tougher — by a small margin — each year. The birdie percentage went from 17.7 in 2006 down to 15.3 in 2009. That trend halted last year, when birdie percentage went up slightly to 15.6, as did the average score to par, which dipped back under the even mark.

16th Hole at TPC Scottsdale, Since 2006
To par Birdie pct
2010 -.016 15.6
2009 +.005 15.3
2008 -.035 16.9
2007 -.002 17.7
2006 -.022 17.7

If you’re looking at when potentially you’ll hear the most boos at 16, consider this: three of the last four years, the highest scoring average on the hole came in the second round. Friday afternoon happy hour, plus missed greens and bad putts, could equal rousing disapproval this Friday in Scottsdale.
