WGC Workday Championship at The Concession 2021


Recommended Posts

Definitely up there as being the most stupid name of a tournament, especially when you read out WGC in full as opposed to the acronym. In any event, World Golf Championship action returns this week. Instead of heading down Mexico way, they head back to Florida and Patrick Reed is technically the defending champion and is in the field although given the the change in venue and the change in name, that feels like a little bit of a stretch to me but I guess the Tour wants it that way to add prestige to the WGC's as opposed to simply being known as the money grab (which they clearly are).

 

Notables in the Field:-

Dustin Johnson

Jon Rahm

Justin Thomas 

Xander Schauffele

Tyrell Hatton

Collin Morikawa

Patrick Cantlay

Rory McIlroy

Webb Simpson

Bryson DeChambeau

(The Entire Top 10 in OWGR)

Daniel Berger

Jason Day

Tony Finau 

Tommy Fleetwood

Sergio Garcia

Viktor Hovland

Sunjae Im

Brooks Koepka

Justin Rose

Adam Scott

 

Course:-

The Concession Golf Club

Par 72

7,474 yards

Designed by Jack Nicklaus alongside Tony Jacklin.

Bryson is about the only player in the field with competitive experience, having won the NCAA's there in 2015.

What is Nike doing with Scottie Scheffler's shirt? The lines look like wrinkles and overall it looks like a big red scrotum.

Definitely not going to be anywhere near the most impactful thing which comes out but, I simply cannot believe that the PGA Tour still put JT up for his scheduled press conference so soon after the news about Tiger broke. Who in their right mind thought that that was a sensible thing to do?

 

As it was, interspersed between questions on JT’s thoughts on the course were questions about how he felt hearing the news about a close friend having been involved in a car crash and the recent passing of his grandfather. It definitely seemed like they cut it short but the whole thing was just amateur hour from the PGA Tour.

Covid concerns.

I liked it at Doral.

Yup, bummer to lose tournaments with long histories. The WGCs led to the demise of Doral and the World Cup. I loved both of those events. Grupo Salinas offered the most money. That was all that mattered. Tournaments around the WGCs have been severely impacted as well. If this was really a world tour thing, the South African Open and Australian Open should have been elevated. Plus FedEx Cup was allowed to crush the Western Open! Money grab. You cannot buy history.

Finally on the east coast and some decent TV times for us europeans. The season normally really begins now.

Wrong broadcasting company, imagine that like 5-6 years ago we swedes could watch every tournament on the pga and european tour for 12$ month, now its 65$ per

month to have both, insane

Thomas Detry also played in the NCAAs that season for my Fighting Illini. #1 ranked team all year long, won 7 tournaments and the stroke play portion of the championships but lost in the semi finals of match play to USC. Curse you, Rico Hoey! 😡

 

Thomas was tied for the individual lead going into the final 9 holes, ended up T3.

Yep, more and more people find other ways to see golf.  I have skipped the US tour long time now for money reasons.

$1.82 million to the winner... That will keep ya pretty warm alright! 
🔥💰🔥

Oh yeah, plenty of money on offer, but not particularly special from a viewing perspective. The only WGC that stands out for me is the matchplay and that's because of the format.

10:00 CST start time for PGA Tour Live, ugh.  Maybe I'll just put my head down on the desk and take a nap.

I saw the thread and remembered it was Thursday and quickly went to PGA Tour Live forgetting it's a WGC event, smaller field, and tee times are later and left ☹️! And I also just realized Spieth is an alternate and didn't get in.

      This week, the PGA Tour is at TPC San Antonio on the Oaks Course for the Valero Texas Open. GolfWRX was on-site Tuesday to catch a glimpse into the bags of some of the world’s top golfers.
       
      The field of 144 is getting ready to battle starting Thursday for the $7.7 million purse, with $1.386 million going to the winner. The tournament is also the last event where players can qualify for The Masters, just like Canadian Corey Conners did last year.
