The American Express Tips Guide

American Express target player proflie:

It's simple, fire at the pins and smoke up that putter. Arguably the easiest set up on tour at the PGA West Stadium, NP and La Quinta courses. Some of the purest greens on the schedule here. Risk/Reward theme.

The courses....

TPC Stadium Course at PGA West, 7,113 yards, par 72.
Nicklaus tournament: par 72, 7,159 yards
La quinta: par 72, 7060 yards

Key features: Pure, straight greens. Easy pin positions. Risk/reward theme with water / sandy area trouble, but landing areas generally open. Sparse rough. Island green 17th on Pete Dye stadium course, similar to Sawgrass. Deepest bunker / sandy area ever on 16th on Stadium.

Premium on: Total birdies, Putting from 5-15 and 10-25 feet, aggressive approach proximity

Chicken nuggets:

Adam Hadwin shot 59 at La Quinta in 2017.

Patrick Reed holds the 72 hole tournament record with a score total of 260. Pleased to say Nicspicks followers benefited after I tipped him at a whopping 140/1 pre tournament, giving rise to the hashtag: #GetGreedyWithReedy

American Express Championship Featured Tip

Phil Mickelson 40/1 EW, FRL - is tournament host this week but I'd expect that to help rather than hinder the American enigma. I'm most interested in Phil's tactics here last season where he said he wanted to bomb it everywhere, get as close to the green as possible and go from there. The reason being he's scheduling events where landing areas are forgiving and tracks with lesser rough. It worked last year and when he missed it was easy for him to get up and down I noted when watching. Phil is still no 1. in strokes gained: ability, in this field and around a track like this one. Mick was 8th in approaches from 125-150 yards in 2019.
