Shriners Hospitals Open 2020 | 10 Key Stats

The PGA Tour heads to Las Vegas this week for the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open at TPC Summerlin. We’d encourage you to start your research for the week right here with the 10 Key Stats we find critical to handicapping the field whether betting or playing DFS.

TPC Summerlin is a resort style track par 71 playing around 7200 yards and featuring bentgrass green surfaces. The greens aren’t super difficult to hit or navigate in terms of slope. I disagree with Pat some on fairway finding off the tee being a requirement. If you didn’t need to find fairways at Winged Foot…you won’t need to find them here. I’m leaning distance, approach play and bentgrass putting prowess. Now, the course does sit at elevation with the ball flying about 5-7% farther according to our caddie friends. The three par 5s are all gettable by the field, but you better take advantage. Given the weather looks pretty benign, I think the winning score will be around -18 to -20.
