Valspar Championship

Innisbrook Resort
Palm Harbor, FL

The PGA Tour heads back to Florida as we inch closer to the PGA Championship. If it feels like an eternity since the last major, well, you're asking for a lot! We don't know how lucky we have it. Do you remember the days when the PGA Championship was at the tail end of the schedule? If that was still the case, we'd only be on month one of a two-month break between majors. I know, that sounds awful. Luckily the schedule changed a few years ago and we shouldn't have to wait out a two-month major break again. Well...the break after the Open Championship until the Masters is nine months, but let's not think about that right now. Let's just be content with these brief breaks, and if we get some memorable moments in the middle, that's even better. The PGA Tour schedule isn't going to produce great finishes every week, though, and we can't have big names winning every event – that just isn't possible when nearly 50 events are held each year. All we can ask for is either drama or a spectacular performance from an elite golfer. With a couple guys in the field known simply by the initials DJ and JT, maybe we'll get both?

LAST YEAR

This tournament was not held last year, but in 2019 Paul Casey shot a final-round 72 on his way to a one-stroke victory over Jason Kokrak and Louis Oosthuizen.
