OVERVIEW

This week we get quite the controversial event in Saudi Arabia for the European Tour. If you’re not familiar with what I’m referring to, a quick twitter search should help out, but basically, it’s politically (and morally) driven. That’s about all I’m going to go into on that side of things as this is a happy place where we prefer to #sticktosports.  The course typically plays as a Par 72, but will be played as a Par 70 for the pros this week. There are only two Par 5’s (the 4th & 18th holes), so making birdies or better on these two holes throughout the week are sure to be the difference makers when the trophy is hoisted. There are some water hazards in play as four lakes are featured on five holes and some of the other holes on the course are ocean-side.  The head architect was involved in the redesign at Crans and Wentworth, so those courses may be beneficial to helping us decide which players will play well this week.
