This week's event at Montreux in Nevada swaps strokeplay for stableford. Check out our course and current form stats compiled by Andy Swales ...

"It is always worth remembering that the reason a golfer is competing in Nevada, is because they probably haven’t qualified for the WGC-tournament in Ohio."

For a 20th straight year, the PGA Tour is off to Montreux Golf & Country Club for this week's Barracuda Championship.

This picturesque venue, which sits at the foot of Mount Rose, was opened in June 1997 and laid out more than 5,000 feet above sea level.

Surrounded by dense woodland, Montreux is an undulating tree-lined course which meanders through towering pine trees and alongside fast-flowing streams.

Jack Nicklaus rates the course as one of his best-ever designs and there are approximately 70 white sand bunkers dotted around the layout.

Nicklaus also oversaw the building of three new holes in 2002. This additional trio replaced the original three opening holes, which now form part of the club's practice facilities.

And for a seventh consecutive year, the Barracuda Championship will use a modified Stableford points system.

Horses For Courses

Of those teeing-up on Thursday, the golfer with the best Montreux history of the past decade, albeit without a victory, is Scot Martin Laird.

His last four starts - which span a period of 10 years - have all yielded top-10 finishes.

Two of these arrived during the pre-Stableford era, although it is always worth remembering that the reason a golfer is competing in Nevada, is because they probably haven't qualified for the WGC-tournament in Ohio.

Kevin Tway is certainly one pro in decent form right now, while Richy Werenski - beaten in a play-off at Montreux 12 months ago - was a runner-up in Kentucky during mid-July.

Joel Dahmen and Abraham Ancer are also in good shape, with the former enjoying a run of five straight top-25 finishes - three of them top 10s.

Old Heads

Two of the more experienced players in town this week are Ryan Palmer and Nick Watney.

Both have had three top-10s at Montreux in the past, and their current form is adequate, bearing in mind the lack of quality on show at the Barracuda Championship.

Although Watney hasn't won on Tour in almost six years, and his most recent eight starts have failed to yield a single top-25 finish, he is still one of the six lowest-ranked golfers in the field.

His best finish of 2018 came in early May at Quail Hollow, where he tied for second behind Jason Day.

As for Palmer, who tied-ninth here 12 months ago, the 41-year-old Texan sneaked into the top-25 in Canada on Sunday, and enjoyed a top-10 finish in Maryland at the start of July.

Points Format: Double Eagle: 8 pts; Eagle: 5; Birdie: 2; Par: 0; Bogey: -1; Double Bogey or more: -3
