This will be the first time the tournament will be held at Oakdale. The track is a par-72 that will play 7,264 yards long.
Rory McIlroy is the defending champion and has won the last two tournaments, winning the 2019 edition, with the 2020 and 2021 tournaments being canceled due to COVID-19. McIlroy opens as the favorite to win (+450 at FOX Bet) and pull off the potential three-peat.
A couple of quick notes. With the U.S. Open next weekend, this tournament won’t feature the full slate of top golfers. And, in bigger golf news, the PGA Tour agreed to merge with LIV Golf. How that impacts the players’ focus and psyches this week and moving forward is still to be seen. We can only keep the train moving for now.
Now that we teed off with the basics, let’s approach the favorites and my outright portfolio for this tournament.
