Other difficult holes at this year's Canadian Open include:

#6 – 437-yards (par 4)

watch the water - The large green has a hill in the back.

#14 – 457 yards (par 4)

With water, rough and a narrow fairway, this is one of the most difficult holes at Glen Abbey.

#16 – 485 yards (par 5)

This previouly par 4 hole has been converted to a par-5 for this tournament. There is a small valley that bisects the fairway and can lead to either downhill or uphill approaches for those trying for the green on their second shot.

#18 – 524 yards (par 5)

This is the hole where the rubber meets the road. Memorable finishes here include Billy Andrade's decision in 1998 to dump his shot from behind the green into a bunker in the first playoff hole to beat Bob Friend and then there was Tiger Woods' famous 6-iron approach from a bunker that cliched the victory.
