                About Hole #16 at the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open
                The Kodak Challenge par 5 hole #16 at TPC Summerlin was the fourth easiest hole
                on the course in 2007 and in 2008 it saw 28 eagles and 218 birdies. To reach the
green in two, pros try for a good tee shot to start setting themselves up to use a mid-
iron for shot number two. Although it’s relatively downhill, pros must avoid hole #16’s
trees on both sides of the fairway and the lake guarding the front of the green.
