Winning on the PGA Tour is hard, really hard.¬† Repeating is even harder.¬†This event moves from Mexico City to Bradenton, FL and Concessions GC (what a great name btw ūüĎć).¬† It starts a run of events in the Sunshine State. Will Patrick repeat?¬† Will Rory get the final piece to his WGC-Slam?¬† Will JT emerge from the personal loss and return to his normal form?¬†

Time to pick your horses.

Patrick Reed will defend the title he won last season at the Club de Golf Chapultapec. (Keyur Khamar/PGA TOUR)

Well, the guarantee of hitting the ball a long way and blowing away the field is once again proven incorrect by Bryson shooting a smooth +6! Just TWELVE strokes behind the leaders.

I just pick him up in a trade so I’m going with Scottie Scheffler for the W. He is playing well and has been towards the top of the leaderboard almost every week.

I'm still getting spooled up on how player fields are determined for the 4 World Golf Champion events. I thought I had it correct but I didn't. I'm still researching this but, best I can tell, there are slight differences in how the fields are selected.  If anyone has the scoop on this, please share.

I also was unaware of the history behind the now over two decades old format and that it has not exactly enjoyed a smooth ride along the way. For instance, did you know that these events are run by the International Federation of PGA Tours? (I did not). Did you know that Greg Norman was instrumental in its creation? (I did not). I also did not know that DJ is the only player to own a WGC Slam.  Tiger and Rory are still looking for one each to complete their slam.

For me, they've just always been another venue on the tour and I like watching all of them.  Now just trying to understand the field selection process a little better.

I'm going with Reed for the repeat... hey, what can I say, he's on my team¬†ūüôā.

Here is the breakdown I found on Wikipedia.  Homa got in by virtue of his win getting him to #10 in FedEx points.

Yes but Tigers WGC table wobbles and DJ's is rock solid¬†ūüėČ. Great stat however, considering that 97% of the PGA players will not achieve 18 wins in the career let alone 18 on one subset of events. (Note; I completely made up the 97%... but doubt it's off by much).

It's supposed to be close to 90 on Sunday.¬† Ball should be flying.¬† This is a course that I've actually played, though not from 7,400 yards. ūüôā

Ping G410 - turned down to11.25 degrees, neutral setting - Fujikura Motore X R flex

Ping G410 5-9 wood

Wilson D7 forged 6-GW -  Mamiya recoil 460 R flex

SCOR 52,60

EVNRoll ER 5

Titleist Pro VIx optic yellow with revkev stamped on them

Currently testing Edison wedges to replace SCORS that are wearing out. Also auditions for the 14th spot in the bag.  Current possibilities are a Ping 26 degree hybrid - duplicates the 9 wood or 5 iron but would be used almost exclusively for chipping or Tour Exotics 3 wood simply because you can carry 14 clubs and I might occasionally hit it in certain unusual wind conditions once every four or five rounds.

I got Sungjae or Brooks to win it this week. I also want Wolff to turn it around, his driver has been off the past couple weekends.

Here's some interesting reading on Concession's course. Note: I bummed out because I'm only about 20 miles away and can't attend.

Wow, this track looks brutal.¬† It's up there with the likes of Kiawah Island and Bethpage Black.¬† Perhaps this is a typo, but is the rating/slope even higher since the renovation?¬† BAD, having played here before, and if his driver is accurate, looks to have a slight advantage. It boggles my mind¬†reading "if you see the course from 310 yard carry distance off the tee, it's not very hard"... just nuts.¬†ūüė≤

A good many of us might finding breaking 90 on The Gimme Course challenging¬†ūüôā.¬† Sounds like a fun venue with holes being designed to look like famous holes around the globe.¬† I think you Florida Boyz should meet-up and play both courses.... need intel on possible locations for the National MGS Roundup.

Well, TGC has decided I'm watching the Puerto Rico Open this morning.  Not complaining mind you. As windy as it is here today, the interwebz could be kaput.

Is it just me or does Bryson look like he's slimmed a pretty decent amount from his most bulked form? Could have just been a camera angle or something, but I swear he looks a lot slimmer than I'm remembering the last year.
