Parker's Tour Favorites:

Favorite course: Quail Hollow Club at the Wachovia Championship - It's a great course to play on, and the fans in Charlotte are a lot of fun.

Favorite hole: #16 on TPC Scottsdale at the FBR Open - This is one of the most well-known holes on tour. It's a 162-yard par 3, lined with bleachers and fans who are always cheering you on. As soon as you walk through the tunnel onto the tee box, you're greeted with unbelievable cheers.

Toughest hole: #1 at Waialae Country Club at the Sony Open in Hawaii - This hole is a 480-yard par 4. In the 2008 Sony Open, only 30 birdies were made on this hole throughout the entire tournament.
