TPC San Antonio’s Oaks Course presents a challenging blend of accuracy and power. With over 70 bunkers and a few water hazards, the course’s defenses are primarily its fast, firm greens, notorious for their difficulty in holding shots. The wind is a significant factor, expected to play havoc with approach shots and make the greens even more challenging to navigate.

With a projected winning score of -15 and a cut at +2, past champions like Corey Conners and Jordan Spieth have demonstrated that a balanced attack is key to conquering this course.

  • Shots Gained Approach

PGA DFS Strategy
