English Turn has hosted the HP Classic of New Orleans since 1989,
and its watery, heavily bunkered 18th hole, a 471-yard par-4, has
gone a long way toward deciding the championship. With a 4.40
stroke average over 14 years, 18 is the most difficult closing
hole on Tour, and the second-toughest overall. Avoiding a big
number there is crucial.
