When the PGA TOUR replaced the Buick Open with The Greenbrier Classic in 2010, it was not without the persistence of Greenbrier owner, Jim Justice. A collegiate golfer himself, Justice’s love of the game, coupled with his determination to bring new exposure to America’s Resort, resulted in a long-term contract with the TOUR.
This popular stop on the PGA TOUR is played on The Greenbrier’s Old White TPC. Originally designed in 1914, the links were remodeled in 2017 due to catastrophic flooding the previous summer. The new course, a Par 70, features generous fairways and challenging putting greens. Expect to see all sorts of drama unfold as 156 rising stars and long-time professionals confront the demands of this state-of-the-art course.
Based on previous years, tournament play often comes down to a photo finish. In 2015, Danny Lee emerged from a dramatic four-person playoff to claim his first PGA TOUR victory. The South Korean-born New Zealander played his way into the sudden death playoff with a final round 3-under-par 67. Lee and David Hearn then birdied the first playoff hole to eliminate Robert Streb and Kevin Kisner, who both missed the green on the par 3, 18th hole. Lee then two-putted the second playoff hole, the par 5, 17th, to seal the victory after a bogey by Hearn.
With 2016 canceled due to record flooding, 2017 was the year Xander Schauffele earned his first PGA Tour title. He birdied the final green, finishing 14 under and only one shot under runner-up, Robert Streb.Subcribe Now
