The Zurich Classic will be played at the TPC Louisiana in Avondale, La. Often ranking as one of the easiest courses on the PGA Tour, TPC Louisiana is a par-72 course that measures at 7,425 yards.

Fresh off his first win in five years, Jim Furyk will be off this week, though there are still a few big names in this week’s field. Jason Day (No. 5), Dustin Johnson (No. 6) and Justin Rose (No. 9) are the top-10 ranked golfers in the Official World Golf Rankings who who will be teeing off, as well as defending FedEx Cup champ Billy Horschel.

Last year, Seung-Yul Noh claimed his first PGA Tour victory by going wire-to-wire to top Robert Streb and Andrew Svoboda by two strokes.

Rose enters with momentum after tying for second at the Masters, and he has finished 15th or better in his last three starts at TPC Louisiana. A potent combination, to be sure.

In the absence of a favorite, stick with the chalk. It’s the kind of week to play for the push and hope to get lucky.

He's finished no worse than sixth in his past three starts, including his win at the Cadillac Championship and a career-best T6 at the Masters.

Finished T8 at Zurich in 2013 and has two top-20 finishes in his last two starts. Look for the LSU product to pick up his first TOUR win in his home state.

Rickie is one of the best "feel" putters on TOUR and he leads the TOUR in scrambling from the fringe at 100 percent. That's right, Rickie is 22-22 from the fringe.

Of Rose's 24 career rounds at TPC Louisiana, 18 have been under par, including 11 in the 60s.

After a poor start to the season, things clicked for Rose at Augusta National. He's now headed to TPC Louisiana, where he has been great, finishing top 15 his last three visits.

He hasn't played in New Orleans since 2009 but was hovering in contention at the Masters. Day's game also suits the lengthy TPC Louisiana well as he is tied for first in par-4 scoring.

He's healthy, happy and coming off T6s at Valero and Augusta. Don't ever count out a healthy and happy DJ.

Going with a tried and true handicapping strategy; a gut feeling. Some decent course history (T6in '13) but mainly just think his immense talent will be on display.

This is about the time on the PGA golf schedule where I start to mosey away from actively watching the game. In my opinion the season is way too long - longer than most other professional sports. Oct 2014 to Sep 2015.  Completely dilutes the tournaments importance.

I'll pay attention to the WGCs, the majors, Jack's tourney, then the Tour Championship and Pres Cup.

Sorry CVS Health Charity Classic . You may be a classic, but I ain't watchig.

I like it even though I don't always watch. It's nice that different cities can get a chance to see the pros up close almost every single weekend. I just wish we could get more tourney's in the mid-west during the summer. I have to pretty much wait for majors/Ryder Cup at Hazeltine or Whistling Straights and then I might not even get a ticket because everyone wants to be there. :pound:

Goodbye. See you and your anti-Tiger-despite-nearly-every-other-pro-doing-the-same-things tirades in about ten months. BTW the CVS Health Charity Classic is not part of the PGA Tour. It is a locally run small exhibition like the big names used to play back in the day to raise money locally to support a good cause.

Since Tiger doesn't really play much of the tour events but cherry picks the tournaments that he'll support, I still will watch him toss clubs and throw out f-bombs. Its almost as if he agrees with me that the tour is over saturated with tournaments for nearly 12 months.

Like I said "anti-Tiger-despite-nearly-every-other-pro-doing-the-same-things". Some things never change. One of them is @Rick Martin -Goodbye.

Your goodbyes are premature - said I wasn't watching the telecasts - didn't say I'd keep from posting my gems.

Not premature-Just wishful thinking.

Pretty compact leader board: -11 currently leads with a projected cut of -4 (83 players currently)...119 under par and within 10 shots. Looks like 66 guys are at -5 or better (4 of the -5 still on the course) with 7 guys at -4 with holes remaining in round 2. [U]Unlikely[/U] , but if 4+ of the guys at -4 make it to -5, there could be some unhappy guys finished at -4 who go to bed tonight (assuming round 2 doesn't get completed) thinking they will play the weekend only to find they miss the cut.

    • What country do you think has the fastest pace of play? Asking for when I retire
    • 4.5 hours being considered fine is just an American view of the game  I think most Americans would find themselves unwelcome if they didnt adjust to the pace in their weekly rounds elsewhere in the world.
    • Played yesterday and today.  Didn't go so well yesterday as I shot a 106 yesterday as my driver was just all over the place and my ball striking overall left a lot to be desired.  Had 4 GIRs, however, 3 were on the front which was a general theme as shot 49 on the front and 57 on the back. Score: 106 CR/Slope: 71.6/121 2 Pars 5 Bogeys 3 DB 6 TB 1 Quad-Bogey View this round on GAME GOLF   Today I was able to bounce back and although I shot 100, I had control over my driver, was moving the ball right to left or straight off the tee and my ball striking felt better.  2 holes ended up doing me in, though.  After starting with 3 bogeys, which really should have included 1 par, and a double bogey, on the par 3 4th hole, I pushed a 7I right  and subsequently overdrew the ball on my reload and missed short and right on a brutal front right location location on a green that slopped severely from back right to front left.  Over-hit my chip shot that went all the way to the back right of the green, had to chip on and then 3 putt for an 8.  On the Par 4 14th hole, I overdrew 2 tee shots with my 3H OB.  Then chipped out, leaving myself 100 yards, took a three-quarter swing with a 52 degree wedge and left it short right.  Flag was on the front right and I thinned my chip shot, leaving it on the back left of the green.  I then 3 putt for a 10.  That said, drained a few longish putts, but my short game, putter notwithstanding, was brutal as I failed to leave myself any gimmies when chipping.  That said, had another birdie and a few pars so there are definitely positives to take away from the round. Score: 100 CR/Slope: 70.4/124 Birdie: 1 Pars: 3 Bogeys: 6 DB: 6 Others: 2 View this round on GAME GOLF 4 rounds in four days - first time I've been able to do that and it was AWESOME!  Shot 95, 95, 106, 100 so, not too shabby for me. 
    • thank you...already loaded up on TM clubs :/...that being said, I've been working on my tee shot and was wondering how much range time is too much?  have had my M2 driver for about 5 days...have hit about 250ish balls with it already...too much?
    • Yep.  Lagavulin is another.  The Isle of Islay scotches are unique.  A lot of people don’t like the peat and astringent iodine.  Good stuff, but not a beginners whisky!
