THE OVERVIEW

The Old White TPC, White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia - This week the PGA is visiting West Virginia in what is being dubbed "A Military Tribute." The Greenbrier has been hosting this event since 2010 and the Old White TPC track will play as a 7,286-yard, par 70 this week, but it is at some elevation. The course features big fairways, bentgrass greens, and tree-lined fairways.

Bombers who are putting well may have a distinct advantage. When picking players FGWW was looking at SG:OTT, SG:Putting, Par-4 Scoring, current form, and course history.

THE 'FORE' SOMES

'FORE' SOMES are chosen by selecting one player from a "low tier" betting pool (30:1 or better), two players from a "mid tier" (30:1 - 75:1), and a final player from a "high tier" (75:1 & up).  

KEITH'S 'FORE' SOME 

Bubba Watson  (16:1).  With Bubba's performance so far this season it might be hard to see anyone keeping up with him at Greenbrier. A huge hitter who has touch with his irons and his flatstick. Could he get his fourth win of the year this week? Might be more likely than it sounds.

Brian Harman  (33:1)  & J.B. Holmes  (33:1).  Harman started off the season white hot. Cooled off a bit, but has been trending back to that form lately. T14 at Fort Worth, T36 US Open, and T6 last week. Gains nearly half a stroke off the tee and more than half a stroke with his putter. Isn’t consistently long with his driver, but with these fairways he’ll be able to let it loose a bit. JB Holmes is seriously getting into form just in time for Carnoustie. He's a Kentucky Boy who will be right at home in West Virginia. T13 at Memorial, 3rd at the St. Jude, T2 at the Travelers. MC last week, but that doesn’t bother me. Gains a full stroke off the tee. Not the best putter, but current form could supercede that.

Trey Mullinax (125:1).  Super big off the tee. Doesn't give away strokes on the green.
