Tiger Woods made his first visit to Kiawah Island's Ocean Course Tuesday for an early look at the site of next week's PGA Championship.
Woods said the course was unusually soft due to two inches of overnight rain but he had plenty to take in as he prepared for the year's final major championship.
"It's going to be long," Woods told reporters Wednesday at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational in Akron, Ohio. "I think it's going to be close to 7,700 yards and that's just a big ballpark."
Woods said many of the holes played into a crosswind rather than the prevailing southwest wind that has approximately half the course playing into the wind and the other half playing downwind.
Woods said it will be only the second time he's played on paspalum greens and he expects them to firm.
According to published reports, Woods' yacht has been seen in the Lowcountry.
"It's going to be a great test," Woods said. "I don't know how the spectators are going to get around this place. First of all, I don't know how they're going to get to it. But once they're there, it's going to be a great environment."
