Zurich Classic of New Orleans 2019: Form stats for this week's PGA Tour event at TPC Louisiana

Zurich Classic of New Orleans at TPC Louisiana
TPC Louisiana: Eighty two-man teams are teeing-up at this week's event in New Orleans

Andy Swales supplies course and current form stats for the two-man team event which tees-off in New Orleans this Thursday ...

"In-form Jason Kokrak is keeping good company among the big names at the top end of the Strokes Gained: Tee-to-Green category."

The last week of April takes the PGA Tour to Louisiana for the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

For the third year running, the tournament is a two-man team event comprising 72 holes of strokeplay.

As with each of the previous two instalments, 80 pairs will tee-up at TPC Louisiana, where days one and three will feature fourballs (better ball), while rounds two and four involves foursomes (alternate shots).

Marquee Partnerships

It's fair to say there are six eye-catching partnerships lining-up in the Deep South.

They are Tommy Fleetwood & Sergio Garcia, Louis Oosthuizen & Charl Schwartzel, Bubba Watson & JB Holmes, Jason Day & Adam Scott, Henrik Stenson & Graeme McDowell and Patrick Cantlay & Patrick Reed.

Cantlay & Reed teamed-up in each of the last two years, registering finishes of tied-14th and tied-seventh.

Oosthuizen & Schwartzel stood on the podium together 12 months ago, while the pairing of Fleetwood and Garcia could be interesting if they can re-capture some of the infectious spirit which carried the Europeans to victory at last year's Ryder Cup in France.

However, on both previous occasions the Zurich Classic was staged as a team event, victory went to players just outside the top echelon of the game.

In 2017, Cameron Smith & Jonas Blixt emerged triumphant, while Billy Horschel & Scott Piercy stood atop the leaderboard last year.

Course Specialists

One player who has really excelled at TPC Louisiana in the past, carrying his good form over into the team event, is Jason Dufner.

The one-time major champion is a former winner over the course, while posting a brace of top-fives in each of the past two years.

However, the big downside for Dufner is that neither he, nor team-mate Pat Perez, has registered a single top-40 finish on Tour during 2019 from a combined total of 14 starts.

The aforementioned Watson is also a former champion from eight years back and, together with the experienced Holmes, are a formidable partnership on paper at least.

The same applies to Stenson and McDowell whose accuracy could work well together in foursomes.

Other Teams

Ryan Palmer and Jon Rahm make an interesting combination while three other partnerships to consider are Tony Finau & Kyle Stanley, Charley Hoffman & Nick Watney, and Jason Kokrak & Chris Stroud.

Finau is usually a safe pairs of hands with the driver; Hoffman and former Zurich Classic champion Watney team-up for a third straight year; while in-form Kokrak is keeping good company among the big names at the top end of the Strokes Gained: Tee-to-Green category.

15-Year-Old Venue

Designed by Pete Dye and opened in 2004, TPC Louisiana made its Tour debut 14 years ago replacing English Turn as tournament host.

However, the latter returned for one year only after Dye's new creation was badly damaged by Hurricane Katrina, when much of New Orleans suffered catastrophic flooding in August 2005.

Laid out on the delta wetlands of this low-lying coastal city, TPC Louisiana covers more than 250 acres and is dotted by more than 100 bunkers.

Water comes into play on eight holes and, although rough is not a major issue when compared to many PGA Tour venues, accuracy off the tee will still play a vital role in determining which two-man team comes up trumps on Sunday.

Many fairways enjoy subtle changes in direction, while a couple have severely sharp dog-legs, which means locating the correct line from the tee will prove invaluable.
