Pebble Beach Golf Links is a par 72. Yet, at 6,816 yards, it's the shortest course on the PGA TOUR. The absence of distance tee to green hasn't prevented long hitters from emerging victorious but length can be ruled out as a necessary means to contend. In 2012, Pebble Beach averaged 71.857 strokes per round. It was just the second time in seven years that the field averaged under par on the famed layout hugging Stillwater Cove.

First introduced into the rotation in 1967, Spyglass Hill Golf Club can stretch to 6,953 yards, longest of the three co-hosts, but it was still the fourth-shortest par 72 of 20 used in non-majors in 2012. For the fourth consecutive year, it registered the lowest average distance off the tee (268.6 yards) of any course. On the scorecard, it averaged 72.581. In the last 14 years, it's checked in under par only once (71.603 in 2010).

Rounding out the rota is Monterey Peninsula Country Club's Shore Course. In play for just the seventh time (1965-66, 1977, 2010-12), it's a par 70 measuring 6,838 yards, thus qualifying it as the second-shortest course on the PGA TOUR. For each of the editions since the late Mike Strantz redesigned it in 2003, the Shore Course has averaged under par. Last year's clip of 69.883 was the highest the modern pros have submitted.
