Shriners Children’s Open – Gambling/DFS Preview 2022

TPC Summerlin – Las Vegas, NV

This week the PGA Tour goes to TPC Summerlin just off the Las Vegas strip for the Shriners Children’s Open.

Course Breakdown

Par 71, 7255 yards, 7 Par 4s between 400-450 yards, course plays a lot shorter due to the elevation so the ball goes 8-10% farther on average here (average drives 296 yds vs. tour average 282), 2 of the 3 Par 5s are reachable in 2 by the whole field and the other one is reachable by some of the field because of the extra length from the altitude, pretty wide tree lined bermuda fairways that tighten up a bit around 300 yards, fairways play firm which leads to extra rollout and even more distance off the tee, missing fairways isn’t very penal with trees spread out and the bermuda rough is pretty short (but can give tricky lies and tough to control distance out of it), rocky native areas if you miss wildly, large bentgrass greens with average speeds and a lot of sneaky slope and undulation with putts breaking more than they look like they will even though the greens look relatively flat, 50 greenside bunkers and 3 inch rough surrounding the greens, top 10 hardest course on tour in scrambling and sand save %, GIR % here is a lot higher than tour average (73% vs. 66%), birdiefest with the winning score around -20

Tournament Notes

  • This event has ended in a playoff 3 of the previous 5 years
  • 12 of the last 21 winners here got their first PGA Tour victory at this event (6 of the last 14)
  • 7 of the last 9 winners were T20 in driving accuracy for the week (Kevin Na, who putted lights out was the exception to that)
