Photos from the WGC-Cadillac Championship

Published

on

GolfWRX is live from the newly redesigned TPC Blue Monster at Trump National Doral Miami for the WGC-Cadillac Championship, just an hour down the road from last week’s event in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. The Blue Monster, a par-72 design measuring 7,481 yards, gets its name from the brutal closing hole that measures 470 yards with water down the left and a guarded bail out to the right.

Donald Trump and Gil Hanse, with the help of a $200 million renovation, made the course longer and more difficult, while breathing life back into the dated layout. The most notable changes appear on the closing stretch, where water now comes into play on the par-3 15th hole and the drivable par-4 16th hole.

Trump’s version of the Blue Monster will makes its PGA Tour debut by hosting each of the top-50 players in the Official World Golf Rankings. Barring any late withdrawals, this will be the first time since the PGA Championship in 2012 that the top-50 players will compete in the same field.

The most likely player to withdraw is defending champion Tiger Woods, who exited the Honda Classic mid-round on Sunday citing back spasms. He won last year by two strokes over Steve Stricker and will reportedly seek treatment in order to defend his title.

    Looking forward to seeing the course $200m investment should equal a great job. But why extend 7481 yards which as usual puts it out of the realms of us mere mortals. Merion proved last year that a course doesn’t need to be stupid long to provide a severe test for the best, so why not tighten it up, re-bunker, contour the greens etc and still keep in under 7000?

    I really don’t like those Ping hats and I especially don’t like the “uniform” look like the Taylormade guys do. This ain’t a team event! On a positive note Doral looks impeccable this year. Nice job Mr. Trump.

    Are any of the pros still using metal spikes?

      Several, if not most, still use spikes. You can usually notice when they walk the cat paths.

        A lot of pro’s say they get better torsion through the swing with traditional metal spikes.

      about 40% use metal or a combination soft spike with metal tip in center of spike

      He took a Tour Edge putter with a Champ grip out to test (the one he was trying in the photo) and is having a couple of others made.

    I love the smell of fresh cut grass in the morning.
