So, we looked at the scoring average on each hole on the PGA Tour in 2015-16, taking the 18 hardest, non-major holes from the 48-50 courses they play each year and putting together the toughest course of PGA Tour holes possible.

With Torrey Pines' South Course and the Champion Course at PGA National proving the two hardest courses on the PGA Tour each year, it's no surprise that those courses have so many holes in the 18 toughest. The same is true with Innisbrook's Copperhead Course, which hosts the Valspar Championship.



As you've probably noticed, there wasn't a single par 5 on the 18 hardest holes on the PGA Tour in 2015-16. For good reason. They're supposed to be easier to score on, for the most part. So, what's the hardest par 5 on the PGA Tour? It's the 14th at Pebble Beach Golf Links because it has one of the hardest-to-hold greens for a par 5 on the planet.
