THE OVERVIEW

TPC Summerlin, Las Vegas, Nevada - The TPC Summerlin is a par-71, 7,255- yard track laid out just below stunning red rock foothills on the west side of Las Vegas, Nevada.  The course winds over and through numerous jagged-rock canyons and features lots of elevation change, big greens, some elusive fairways, and plenty of risk/reward situations. All together, it is a bit of a bomber's course and scores should be really low (Rod Pampling shot an opening round 60 here in 2016).

Some variables that we will be paying close attention to are: current form, course history, driving distance, and putting.

GOLF PICKS

THE 'FORE' SOME

'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 

Bryson DeChambeau  (12:1).  After fading the top three names, give me Bryson DeChambeau. Was absolutely lights out to finish the 2018 season. Back-to-back FedEx playoff wins and followed that with 19th place finishes at the BMW Championship and Tour Championship. 6th on the OWGR and finished T7 here last year. 14 to 1? Book it.

Andrew Putnam  (50:1)  &  Joaquin Niemann  (50:1).  I’m taking two names at 50 here this week. And they’re both kind of gut plays more than anything. Not a lot to say. I am going to continue my heavy play on Andrew Putnam. Something is telling me that he is feeling it right now. And I am expecting Joaquin Niemann to have a big tourney early this season. It could really come at any time. Beau Hossler at 40:1 just missed this spot, I ended up taking the higher value.

J.J. Spaun  (100:1).  There are a ton of fun names in this range this week. I almost took Danny Lee, but I fell on Spaun.
