2021 Valspar Championship Tournament Preview

Valspar Championship LogoThe Valspar Championship will once again be a test of golf for the players that try to survive the Snake Pit of 16, 17 and 18. Many top players pass on the Valspar given the stretch that they’ve been on in the last few weeks but you still have a pretty solid field to make your expert picks from.

Played at the Copperhead Course at Innisbrook Resort, the players will notice a refreshed course with new bunkers, brand new fairways and a general upgrade without any major changes to scare off the PGA golfers.
