The course - TPC Summerlin par 71, 7,255 yards

Key Features

Desert terrain, elevation, altitude, large elevated bentgrass greens, risk reward theme, generous landing areas

Premium on

SG: Off the tee, SG:T2G, birdies/ par breakers, distance control at altitude, controlled aggression

Note: TPC Summerlin is a risk reward course where elevation changes coupled with altitude and some raised greens with run offs means both approach play and scrambling are necessary. Power off the tee is a an advantage but you can't spray it here either. Ultimately it will come down to the blue circles carded.

Kevin Na reckons he has a big advantage knowing the nuances of the greens and strong putters like Kaufman (in a previous life) and Kizzire have excelled here.

Well the best value tip this week has got to be Aron wise at 66/1 ew. Wise resides in Reno and his coach has been based out of TPC Summerlin. Aron contended on his debut season at this event opening 66-65, and owns form of 10-32-15 in his successive appearances here. It's no coincidence given his field ranking of 4th and 8th respectively in the key metrics above. Wise is already a winner on tour and also owns form at the correlating event at PGA West

Kurt Kitayama 200/1 ew is a big hitting American that's won 2 times on the European tour in the last 10 months. What's more, he is showing #progressive form too with 36-21-14 recent finishes on the ET, and hit 71-71-68-69 at Wentworth last week for that 14th place. The American ranks 3rd in driving distance on the ET, and is on a course that rewards big hitters generally speaking. Track will suit his style. It may not work out but he was one of those overlooked in the market. Opened as high as 12/1 for a top 20

Matthew Wolff 50/1 isn't ranked in the stats categories yet on the PGA Tour site but I can tell you when it comes to long hitting and par breakers he passes the test with flying colours. Already a winner on the main stage, and TPC Summerlin is the type of gaff I have him profiled for. Wolff's scorecards tend to have more blue circles than a packet of smarties.
