THE CJ CUP @ SUMMIT

The Summit Club
Las Vegas, NV

The PGA Tour stays put, as the pros again tee it up in Las Vegas this week. 

Unlike this past week's track, The Summit Club is brand new to the PGA Tour, which considering where this tournament lands on the schedule, is going to make it tricky forecasting a winner. As always, we'll move forward with the data we have and make our best guess. 

While the course is new to us – always a pain – we at least get a lot of big names back in the mix, which should be fun. Motivation is frequently a question with a number of players in that category, as it's difficult to discern whether or not they're taking it easy for the rest of the year or if they are still grinding it out and trying to get a leg up on the competition before 2022 rolls around. An easy way to figure that out is to check a player's past results in the fall. Some guys fare well this time of year and others don't. You'll need more than a year or two of data to make an assumption, though, as a small sample size could be indicative of some other condition, such as a hot streak or a temporary distraction. Not all the best golfers are on hand, but there are more than enough to make me think this should be an exciting week.
