Irving, Texas.

  • Course:

TPC Four Seasons Resort – 7,100 yard+ Par 70, originally designed in 1982 by Jay Morrish with Byron Nelson and Ben Crenshaw. It has tree-lined fairways and large undulating greens. The course shows its teeth when the wind blows

Defending Champion:

Sergio Garcia – he beat Brooks Koepka in a playoff after shooting -15 (265) in regulation play.

  • How He Did It:

Garcia was 9th in Driving Distance, T43 in Driving Accuracy, T4 in GIR and 12th in Strokes Gained Putting.

This year

The Field contains a NUMBER of big names, especially when you consider its easily one of the least-liked courses on Tour. Thanks to that the event will move to a new course next year,

My projections for the field are above. The players listed are roughly my top 20 picks, then I delve into specifics for each one, to narrow those 20 down to 7 Players  (Those which names are green)

So that being said: My top picks this week are: Sergio Garcia, Louis Oosthuizen, Russell Henley, Bud Cauley, Kevin Tway, Smylie Kaufman and Nick Taylor
