The Old White TPC

  • Last Updated: July 5 2012, 17:07 BST

The PGA Tour heads to West Virginia for the third staging of The Greenbrier Classic.

The 18th hole at The Old White

Once again The Old White - one of three courses at The Greenbrier's Sporting Club complex - plays host to one of the newest tournaments on the American schedule.

Designed by Charles Blair MacDonald and opened 98 years ago, The Old White combines generously wide fairways with undulating large greens.

The course is also well-known as being the stomping ground of one of the game's all-time greats - Sam Snead.

Snead, who died 10 years ago and was the winner of seven Major championships between 1942 and 1954, was the former head pro at The Greenbrier Resort in White Sulphur Springs.

Another of The Greenbrier's three layouts hosted the 1979 Ryder Cup and 1994 Solheim Cup.

So who's teeing-up this Thursday?

Jim Furyk: Remains one of the most consistent professionals in world golf. He tied ninth at The Greenbrier two years ago.

Brendon de Jonge: A brace of top-four finishes over The Old White. Top 12 performances in each of his most recent two PGA Tour starts.

Dustin Johnson: After missing much of the season through injury, the 28-year-old is still making up for lost time. Was a winner in Tennessee in early June.

Jeff Overton: Unfortunate to miss out on a victory when The Greenbrier staged its maiden event two years ago. Leader after 54 holes, it needed a brilliant 59 from Stuart Appleby to deny him a first Tour title - and he's still waiting.

Andres Romero: Tied for second behind Tiger Woods at the Memorial Tournament and seems to be re-discovering the sort of form that propelled him into the top-25 of the world four years ago

Steve Stricker: Has had a reasonable season so far but just one victory in the last 10 months.

Tiger Woods: Three wins in the last seven starts now for the rejuvenated Woods. The hot favourite to make it back-to-back titles after his victory at Congressional last week. This is his tournament debut.
