For a second straight week, players from both the PGA and DP World tours battle it out on American soil.
Many of those who narrowly failed to qualify for The Open Championship in Scotland will be turning their attention to this unique event at the California ski resort of Tahoe Mountain Club.
Located almost 6,000 feet above sea level, Tahoe Mountain Club is a picturesque venue laid out within 600 acres of forest and meadowland.
Opened in 2004, the club's Old Greenwood course is surrounded by the many peaks of the Sierra Nevada mountain range.
Towering pine trees line most of the fairways, while water comes into play on six holes.
The putting surfaces at this Jack Nicklaus-designed course are extremely undulating and quick, which puts a premium on accurate approach shots.
The club is situated around 40 miles from California's state border with Nevada. Because of its height above sea level early-morning frosts are not uncommon, even during the summer months, when some days experience temperature swings of around 50℉ degrees.
Modified Stableford format
The points' format for this week's 72-hole tournament remains as follows: Double Eagle: 8 pts; Eagle: 5; Birdie: 2; Par: 0; Bogey: -1; Double Bogey or worse: -3.
With more points awarded for a birdie, than a bogey, it is a system devised to encourage attacking golf.
