Rose: Albany's closing hole 'one of the toughest par-4s' of the year

NASSAU, Bahamas – As Justin Rose stood on the interview podium Wednesday at the Hero World Challenge, his eyes couldn’t help but wander to a nearby television, which was showing Gary Woodland hit his approach shot into Albany’s par-4 18th hole.

“That's probably one of the toughest par-4s you'll play all year, so save it for December,” said Rose, who escaped the hole with par.

The 470-yard finishing hole is tricky – down the left is water from tee to green, down the right are dunes and a treacherous fairway bunker that makes reaching the green tough.
