Originally designed in 1986 and not very liked by tour professionals, it was seriously operated, with changes to 15 hole patterns. Even in the early years, the track was suffering from dewatering difficulties, while the areas used for placing putts were often considered dissatisfactory for top sports. These questions, however, seem to have gone down in the annals of memory, as does the initial TPC Avenel name of the location.
The 2017 green was strong and quick, one of the main reason why TPC Potomac turned out to be the hardest non-major course on last season's PGA Tour. So the only layout with a higher mean number of points over para were those that produced the PGA Championship, Masters and The Open.
The Potomac was even harder than Erin Hills, hosts of the US Open, and TPC Sawgrass. As well as the demanding green, there were narrow fairlyways and tough roughs, while Potomac has some of the smallest turning areas on the tour. TPC Potomac in Avenel Farm is located about 15 nautical miles northwest of the White House on Capitol Hill, Washington DC, on an area of 220 hectares.
Fowler is the greatest name appearing this weekend in Maryland, with the U.S. one of many top professionals praising the course 12 month ago. In the past year, Stanley was at the top of the Greens in the regulatory ranking at this tournament, and he is currently the third in the same class for seasonal statistics at the PGA Tour in 2018.
In 2017 Charles Howell, who dropped a playoff to Stanley, was also second compared to the old TPC Avenel 14 years ago. Italians Francesco Molinari are trying their luck on a course that should match his match, while Tiger Woods have taken on the Potomac challenges for the first year.
Prior to returning to the tour plan last year, two Web.com sessions were held in 2012 and 2013. In Potomac, Sung Kang has taken the top 10 places on both the Web and PGA Tour, while young Chilean Joaquin Niemann comes back after a two-week rest. He is returning from Korea, where he finished fifth on Sunday, while a younger Cink has just finished among the top six for the first straight nine years.
When it comes to beat green in the regulatory arena, the 2009 Open Champions is one of the best in the game.
