    JAYALGER’S WEEKLY BEAR TRAP


    “You don’t know what pressure is until you play for five bucks with only two dollars in your pocket” - Lee Trevino





    PREVIEW AND PICKS FOR THE NORTHERN TRUST 2019 The Course - Liberty National Golf Club

    It’s time for the FedEx playoffs where the top 125 ranked golfers on the FedEx points list get to compete for a $70 million prize pool with the winner getting a nice payday of $15 million. The first leg of the playoffs is at Liberty National Golf Club in Jersey City, NJ. This parkland-style course has a superb view of the New York City skyline with a patriotic Lady Liberty in view. LNGC will play as a par-71, 7,353-yard course with four par 3s and two par 5s.


    Hole breakdown is as follows:
    Par 3 4

    Par 4 450-500 5

    The Stats to Consider
    • Limited data to 4 rounds in 2013. Therefore, it is difficult to tell if correlations are truly relevant.
    • The longer par 4s (450-500) are the most difficult. Scoring on the par 4s (or at least avoiding bogeys) will be advantageous against the field.
    • Holes are only in same direction twice - holes 8 & 9 and holes 15-16; course routing will keep golfers guessing where the wind is coming from as this is a coastal course and open to winds (usually worse in the afternoon).
    • With smallish greens, long iron approach shots will need to be on target.

    Quotes about the course
    • ADAM SCOTT (2013) - “The greens are not very big, so if you're hitting the green, I think you're going to see a lot of birdies because they are not going to be long putts.”
    • JASON DUFNER (2013) - “I think the green complexes and the approaches are very, very challenging. I think at times you can hit good shots and end up 40, 50, 60 feet away, or sometimes in a bunker off the green.”
    • PHIL MICKELSON (2013) - “I love this golf course. I think it's very well done, and without the rough, it plays‑‑ I would equate it to like Augusta National.”
