Shriners Children's Open

TPC Summerlin
Las Vegas, NV

The PGA Tour heads to Vegas and we get our first glimpse of some high-end talent this season.

I should take that back – after all, Sam Burns played this past week and picked up his second PGA Tour win, and he might be in the "high-end" category already. His rise up the ranks has been swift and maybe a little unexpected, but any questions about where he was headed have been answered. He appears to be the real deal and will be in action again this week. Wouldn't it be something to see him pull off another win?

Burns won't have things as easy as he did in Mississippi, as this week's tournament features a much stronger field than anything we've seen previously this fall. Stars like Brooks Koepka, Viktor Hovland and Scottie Scheffler are in the mix. We aren't getting the bulk of the elite players just yet, but that will come soon. In fact, while we've been taking baby steps in the field department, we will likely see a big jump next week, with just about everyone likely to take part in the CJ Cup. It might be difficult to peg the form of some golfers at this point, as it will be the first appearance this season for many. However, we do have plenty of course history in play, so there won't be any issues in that regard.
