Greenbrier Classic LogoIn only its 9th year on the PGA Tour schedule The Greenbrier Classic has jumped around the schedule and may have finally found a home in the first week of July.

Played at The Old White TPC White Sulphur Springs, this historic course features generous fairways along with challenging, undulating greens.

The 2018 Greenbrier Classic Tourney Preview

The Greenbrier Classic was cancelled a couple of years ago due to severe flooding that caused damage to the area as well as the course. The area has recovered and the GreenBrier Classic is back to normal! The GreenBrier Classic is used by some PGA golfers as a final tune up for the British Open Championship. The field won't be a strong one, so top ranked golfers that are in the field will be focussed on by fantasy players to claim a win, although in its short history, it’s usually a lesser known golfer that beats out the field.

Making golf picks for smaller PGA Tournaments like this one should be left to the experts. Here's a link to the expert golf handicapper we follow most - GolfStats.com - a proven winner.
