Andy Swales supplies course and current form stats for this week's PGA Tour event at White Sulphur Springs...

"Not including the first winner at The Greenbrier in 2010, five of the other six subsequent champions were making their debuts at the course, including Xander Schauffele who claimed his breakthrough title last year."

The PGA Tour makes its annual stop in West Virginia for this week's eighth instalment of The Greenbrier Classic.

Despite being a relatively new event, the venue is one of the oldest on Tour, with The Old White at Sulphur Springs in existence for more than 100 years.

Opened in 1914, The Old White is one of four layouts at this luxury resort in the Allegheny Mountains.

Trees, rather than water, are the main hazards at this wooded venue. Most of the significant water appears late in the round, while the tree-lined fairways are generous in width.

The putting surfaces are reasonably undulating on a course where the great Sam Snead learnt to play golf.

First staged eight years ago, the tournament was cancelled in 2016 due to severe flooding in parts of West Virginia during June.

Due to considerable damage caused by these floods, all the fairways and putting surfaces had to be re-seeded and re-grown from scratch.

With many of the game's top stars preparing for the forthcoming Open Championship at Carnoustie, the field for this week's tournament does not have the strength in depth normally associated with PGA Tour events at this time of year. And it usually remains this way throughout July.

Major Names

Three leading Americans who have decided to turn up in West Virginia, ahead of their Atlantic crossing to Scotland, are Bubba Watson, Phil Mickelson and Webb Simpson.

Watson, a three-time winner on Tour during 2018, is the highest-ranked golfer in the field at No 12.

However, this season's Sawgrass champion Simpson will be just as confident, thanks to three top-10 finishes at Greenbrier in the past.

Another former major champion with a good record here is Jimmy Walker. The 2016 PGA Championship winner has posted three top-four finishes at The Old White.

Walker has played solidly this season, as has Russell Henley whose two most recent trips to this event have yielded top-five finishes.

Henley, a three-time winner on Tour during his career, tied-sixth on his most recent outing at TPC River Highlands.

Tony Finau is another who can boast good course form, along with decent current form, although history shows this particular combination is often overrated at The Old White.

Classic History

Not including the first winner at The Greenbrier in 2010, five of the other six subsequent champions were making their debuts at the course, including Xander Schauffele who claimed his breakthrough title last year.

In fact, few champions have posted other top-10s at The Old White with inaugural title holder Stuart Appleby missing the cut in all five follow-up visits.

The only winner to have enjoyed as many as three top-25s here is Danny Lee, champion in 2015.

Among The Greenbrier debutants teeing-up on Thursday are Anirban Lahiri and Andrew Putnam, both of whom are playing reasonably well at present.

Lahiri is coming off the back of two top-15 finishes, while Putnam was runner-up to Dustin Johnson at TPC Southwind last month.
