2017 Greenbrier Classic Picks and Tournament Preview

Greenbrier Classic LogoIn only its 8th 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 2017 Greenbrier Classic Tourney Preview

The Greenbrier Classic was cancelled last year due to severe flooding that caused damage to the area as well as the course. The area has recovered and the 2017 GreenBrier Classic will be a GO once again! The Classic is used by some PGA golfers as a final tune up for the British Open Championship. There are still some top golfers already committed to play: Bubba Watson, Phil Mickelson and John Daly. The field is not a strong one, so top ranked golfers 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 - Golfbanker.com - a proven winner.
