An upgrade of course
Question of the Day
Said Brandt Snedeker, one of the first PGA Tour pros to see the new layout after it opened April 18: “It’s definitely got the build for a tour event. I had never played it before, so I never saw the original layout, but whoever did the redesign did a very good job. It’s a strong course, and it will be interesting to see if we go back there someday.”
The new TPC Potomac certainly has the capacity to host another event. Not only is the course greatly improved, both the clubhouse and practice facility have been renovated, expanded and modernized.
Is the tour considering bringing another event to Avenel Farm? The AT&T; National probably isn’t an option. Not only is the event booked through 2014 at Aronimink (2010-11) and Congressional (2009, 2012-14), Tiger Woods prefers the kind of historic major venues with which Avenel just can’t compete. But don’t be surprised if TPC Potomac receives serious consideration when Baltimore Country Club’s contract with the Senior Players Championship runs out after next year.
“We didn’t build it with any specific event in mind, but our intent was for the final product to be a PGA Tour-caliber test and an exemplary facility for the TPC brand,” said Zink, who didn’t tip his hand but went out of his way to say he didn’t feel the course was too challenging for Champions Tour players. “We are exploring possibilities right now, and there’s no question that we would be interested in hosting an event at TPC Potomac if we can match the right opportunity with the right time frame and the right tournament.”
