PGA Tour: WGC-Bridgeston Invitational Preview & Picks

The 2017 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational makes its way back to Akron, OH from August 3rd to August 6th.

Tournament Preview

This is an invitational tournament so be reminded there are no cuts in this one as there are only 78 golfers in the field. If you are playing fantasy golf this obviously makes things a little easier as you know every player will get 4 rounds of golf. For sports betting it certainly makes things interesting as if we bet on the outright winner, there is potential for a larger upset.

Firestone Country Club is a Par 70 course measure 7,400 yards. It is one of the toughest courses on the PGA tour even though it only has 2 par 5’s. But need I mention the 16th hole measures 667 yards. The course is filled with long par 4’s all around the course, it has difficult to hit fairways that include not only tough landing spots, but thin landing spots at that. The rough isn’t anything overly tough as it is pretty average, and with a lot of these guys coming off playing at The Open, this rough will seem a lot easier.

Important Statistics

The statistics that should be looked at the most and taken into most consideration is:

  1. Strokes Gained Off the Tee
  2. Driver Distance
  3. Drive Accuracy
  4. Par 4 Scoring
  5. Green in Regulation
  6. Birdie or Better %
  7. Course History

Looking at these statistics should us see what golfers have the greatest potential on not only winning the tournament, but winning their group play as well.
