I’m ready for a breather after that tense Sunday at TPC Sawgrass, but I’m not sure this week’s Valspar Championship is going to provide it. A semi-loaded field includes last week’s contenders Jon Rahm and Dustin Johnson at a tough course that should be full of drama.
As the Masters bears down on us here in just a few weeks, there will be plenty of golfers trying to get in some last-minute prep work for Augusta. Or, even better, trying to win and get into the first major of 2019.
We won’t get a redux of Tiger Woods trying to win this tournament last year because of where it’s moved on the schedule, but with this solid of a field and this good of a course, I imagine the golf is still going to be pretty great.
It was at this course a year ago that Tiger Woods finally proved he still has what it takes to finish atop the leaderboard, as he came up just one stroke short of winner Paul Casey after failing to birdie the 72nd hole.
The Tiger effect was real at the 2018 Valspar Championship, which was the highest television rated non-major tournament in the past five years. Unfortunately for Tiger fans this year, Woods will not be returning to the greens until next week’s WGC-Match Play in Austin, Texas, after finishing tied for 30th at The Players Championship.
Only two of the world’s top 10 golfers – Dustin Johnson and Jon Rahm – are in this week’s field, as many opt to sit this event out to avoid playing four tournaments in four weeks with the Masters looming around the corner.
