On October 8th, Beijing time, don’t call it the "West Bund Swing Tournament", because from January to February, the real "West Bund Swing Tournament" will come again, but the PGA Tour will indeed be in the next three weeks. It will be held in the Pacific time zone.
starts with the familiar Holy Land Brotherhood Children’s Hospital Open. Since 1990, this race has been held in the autumn. Then due to the new crown epidemic, the two stations of the Asian Swing Tournament were temporarily transferred to Nevada (Xijie Cup) and California (ZOZO Championship). Among the three races, only the Holy Land Brotherhood Children's Hospital Open has a full lineup of 144 and also has a knockout line. The other two stations are 78-person invitational matches, and no elimination line is set.
In TPC Samlin, traditional thinking and empirical data often conflict. As the weakest par 71 field in the schedule, TPC Samlin was the easiest among the 10 par 71 fields last season, with an average of 68.859, a record low since the first tournament in 1992. Here, the strategy is definitely: "Go to the green, push into the putt", but it seems to be the same elsewhere. It should be said that for every good stadium, the champion is likely to be able to rely on a sharp putt. Luo Xiangyu (Kevin Na) proved this last year and finally defeated Patrick Cantley in the playoff.
在TPC Samlin中，传统思维和经验数据经常会发生冲突。作为赛程中最弱的71杆标准杆，TPC萨姆林是上赛季10杆71杆标准杆中最容易的一个，平均为68.859，创自1992年第一届锦标赛以来的最低记录。绿色，将其推入推杆”，但其他地方似乎都一样。应该说，对于每个好的体育场，冠军都有可能依靠锋利的推杆。罗向宇（Kevin Na）去年证明了这一点，并最终在季后赛中击败了Patrick Cantley。
TPC Samlin has a length of 7,255 yards. Considering that this area is often windy, the area of the green is relatively large. However, when the wind is not blowing, the tournament can easily become a putting competition, because players can easily create scoring opportunities on such greens. In this regard, consider that last year's champion Luo Xiangyu had 13.5 greens per round (tied for 46th), which is even a drop below average.
Obviously, Luo Xiangyu's deadly weapon is putter. In the process of hitting 261, which was 23 under par, he ranked second in birdie putts. He scored putts, marked the number of putts, the number of putts, the distance of putts into the hole, and the rate of one putt And the conversion rate of 10-foot putter leads the audience.
Leading the other 11 players in the top ten on the list, nine of them entered the top ten in terms of green rate data, but only three of them broke through the top ten in putting scores.
The scoring conditions for the first two rounds of this week are very good, but during the weekend, a blast of cold air will come. With the intrusion of cold air, the wind from the main direction of the southwest will increase its strength and then turn to the north wind. The maximum daytime temperature will drop sharply from around 90 degrees Fahrenheit on Thursday to around 80 degrees Fahrenheit in the final round. But it will not rain.
For the third consecutive year, the main length of grass will be limited to 2 inches (previously 3 inches). The speed of the Bent grass green will be about 11 feet and a half, which will further bias the aggressive putting style.
