Shriners Hospitals for Children Open

TPC Summerlin
Las Vegas, NV

The PGA Tour heads to Vegas this week as many of the game's big stars come back into the fold. When the new schedule came into play a few years ago, it not only brought more intrigue into the fall portion of the schedule, but also more big names out of the woodwork earlier than before. It's not that we see big names every week – anyone who followed last week's event can attest to that – but it feels like the better golfers make more of an effort now that the season begins – rather than ends – in the fall. An added bonus this week: not only is the field strong, but many of the top golfers have a nice track record at this course. Speaking of the course, it's been in play for almost two decades, so we'll have plenty of history to comb through this week. If anything, recent form could be an issue, as many of these guys have been absent since the U.S. Open, and it's even tough to take too much from that event given how much harder it plays than most other tournaments.

LAST YEAR

Kevin Na shot a final-round 70 on his way to a playoff victory over Patrick Cantlay.

FAVORITES
