Sung Jae Im
The PGA Tour now moves back to the mainland and tees up at the La Quinta resort PGA West California and set at the foot of the majestic Santa Rosa Mountains offering breath-taking views. Due to the ongoing COVID pandemic there will be no Pro-Am this year so the tournament will be played on only two courses instead of the usual three.
The PGA West Stadium Course was designed by the legendary Pete Dye and like his design at TPC Sawgrass also features an island green at the par 3, 17th that has been dubbed Alcatraz. The 7,300-yard course that is rated one of the "Top 100 Courses to play" (2016-2017) by GOLF Magazine and 4th toughest course in America in Golf Digest’s "Top 50 Toughest Courses in America" (2007).
Meticulously groomed undulating fairways are framed by mounding offering spectators some wonderful vantage points. There are over 80 bunkers on the course and water comes into play on nine of the eighteen holes, so strategy is key here.
The Nicklaus Tournament Course is a combination of lush green playing surfaces and abundant palm trees set against the majestic Santa Rosa Mountains backdrop. Undulating tapered manicured fairways again require strategic placement from the tee as fairways slope away to lower levels or into bunkers.
There is a great variety of bunkers sizes here from small and deep, to enormous waste areas. The green complexes are mainly raised and well protected, with subtle undulations and will test even the best putters.

My tips to Win:
I feel this could be a big year for Patrick Cantlay 14/1 – with WilliamHill – who has already won on this wraparound season at the Zozo Championship. Patrick has only played in this event twice before with one missed cut and a ninth-place finish, but it’s certainly a different Cantlay who’s turning up this year to the one that played in those two tournaments.
A player that always seems to be around the top pages of the leaderboard recently is Patrick Reed 16/1 – with BetWay – and he has not been outside the Top 25 in his four starts so far on this wraparound season, although he has yet to seriously challenge. Patrick is a past champion of this tournament, but this event hasn’t been on his schedule in recent years and I think he may just fancy his chances this week.
It’s very rare for Sung Jae Im 22/1 – with BetFred – to miss a tournament, it’s also even rarer for him to not challenging for two weeks on the spin. With that in mind and his relatively poor finish by his standards in Hawaii, if you also throw into the mix that Sung Jae has two Top 15 finishes from his two starts in this event, you can see why I feel Im will be back challenging again this week.
With the Ryder Cup on the horizon I am sure Steve Stricker and Rickie Fowler 45/1 – with UniBet – will be hoping that his new swing changes start to kick in and when you look at those odds they should tell you how far Rickie has been off his usual golf game. It has been a month since Fowler last teed it up when he missed the cut in Mayakoba, but with his short game and the work that he has no doubt put in over the last month, these could turn out to be very generous odds.
I was slightly surprised that Adam Hadwin 66/1 – with UniBet – didn’t play in this tournament last year, especially with his record the three previous years 2016 sixth-place, 2017 runner-up, 2018 third-place, 2019 runner-up. His current record in this year’s wraparound season may not be good, but you can’t argue with his stats in this event.
How much mental scar tissue will there be from Sunday in Hawaii for Brendan Steele 100/1 – with SportingIndex – we will soon find out, but it looks like the bookies feel he is going to be badly wounded at these odds. Brendan has had a runner-up finish here and several Top 20s so he knows he can play well here and I am sure there will be plenty of determination on his part to bounce back from Sunday’s last round as quickly as possible.
Try Andrew Landry 160/1 – with UniBet
As always good luck
