Make Or Break: World Challenge

The World Challenge always brings the top quality golfer for the T.V as it issues a winners cheque of $1,000,000 However it's not all about prize money this week as all proceds go to the Tiger Woods College Access program.

This year it will not dissapoint as it has attracted 13 Ryder Cuppers Which include 11 from the American team and @Graeme_McDowell Visit His Twitter Profile Here With @IanJamesPoulter Ian Poulter's Twiter Here From the Victorious European side.

There will be 2 past champions in the field, Tiger Woods and Graeme McDowell who was just recently Engaged so i'm not too sure which way that could play.!

Now to the Make Or Break. The Course its self is rated as one of the best in the world and was designed by Jack Nicklaus. Its a short-ish course standing currently at 7,027 yards, However it does have the Parkland feel going for it with its 1,800 mature Oak trees gaurding the fairways and swallowing up any arrent tee shots. Accuracy is a must off the tee on this course.

Distance also helps, With five par 5's and five par 3's The longer hitters will have much shorter clubs in their hands going into theses mentioned holes and that is a Make Or Break moment this week,

 Can the long hitters get into position to have easier shots in? we'll have to find out.

Their are a couple of Make Or Break holes in Sherwood Country Club such as
1)  A Driveable par 4 1st,  for the longer hitter going fot the green to tray for eagle it is well protected by Large trees and a bunker left.
2) 2nd, The first of the par 5's,  an island green reachable in two big hits, however there is a fairway bunker and if your ball gets caught in this trap there will be no chance of reaching the green in two.

18) We'll skip staright to 18. Course designer Jack Nicklaus describes it as,  " The 444-yard par-4 eighteenth hole the finest finishing hole he has ever created. "  The hole is known for its senic qualities and the mental effect it has on the players. With the Waterfall on the right alongside a pot bunker. A demanding hole to say the least.

It is a true Make or Break course with all the water hazards and spectacular views.

I predict Hunter Mahan To take the spoils.
