  • The 2019-20 PGA Tour season begins on Thursday at the Greenbrier Classic in West Virginia.
  • Joshua Perry analyzes the betting board for the curtain raiser and explains why longshots have success here.

The new PGA Tour season is here already.

For the first time, The Greenbrier will host the opening event after moving to the Fall Swing from its usual spot in July on the Tour’s calendar.

The Old White TPC course can be one of the tougher events to figure out because it fits a variety of playing styles.

The Course

The Old White checks in at nearly 7,300 yards for a par 70, which on paper, seems a little long. But because of the altitude in the West Virginia mountains, it doesn’t play to that length and keeps the shorter hitters in play.

We’ve seen the likes of Kevin Na, Danny Lee and Jonas Blixt — none of whom would qualify as long off the tee — win here, so I’ll weigh the approach game pretty heavily.
