This week the tour heads to The Old White TPC course in White Sulphur Spings, WV for the Greenbrier Classic. This will be a challenging 7274 yd par 70. Scott Stallings picked up the win here last year after a 3 way playoff with Bill Haas and Bob Estes. Driving accuracy, GIR and putting will be key this week, the course ranked 13/51 in difficulty last season. Also the storm that hit Congressional last week also hit Old White with similar damage to trees etc.. Weather will also be an issue this week with rain expected Thur & Fri possibly throughout the week.
A number of big names will be on hand this week including lasts weeks winner Tiger Woods, Phil M. Jim Furyk, Dustin Johnson, this years US Open Champ Webb Simpson and others. Tiger is a big fav once again this week despite the fact he's never played this event, currently 3.5/4.5-1 at most books.
Last week I finished 2nd for the third week in a row also ended up with solo 3rd and T-4th. Disappointing despite going 12-6 H2H I really like to pick the winner and kiss the trophy. The weather will have an impact on all my plays this week mainly reducing the volume in outright and H2H plays. $BOL$

*W. Simpson 18-1

*C. Tringale 55-1
