    The Stats to Consider

    • Easy course. Will need a lot of birdies. Will also need to avoid bogeys.
    • Need to score on the medium par 4s (400-450 yards).
    • Look for good ball strikers who excel with their irons.
    • GIR should provide opportunities for birdies.

    Quotes about the course
    • LUCAS GLOVER, 2017: Greens were absolutely perfect. I mean perfect. They were firm with long irons, receptive with everything else and absolutely rolling great.
    • WEBB SIMPSON, 2017: If you're in the fairway here you're going to have birdie opportunities.
    • RYAN ARMOUR, 2017: I think you have to drive it straight. That's something I've done well all year. But, you got to be patient to where you
    • can go flag hunting but you still got to be aware you can't be going through the greens. You got to stay below the holes.
