Valspar Championship details
Venue: Copperhead Course, Innisbrook Golf and Spa Resort, Florida
Date: April 29-May 2, 2021
Course stats: Par 71; 7,209 yards.
Course summary: This challenging, tree-lined course is a real test for the players, with plenty of factors to consider. Water is in-play on five holes, with tricky dog-leg turns and the potential for devilish winds. Small Bermudagrass greens are hard to find and even harder to put on, with patience a key factor to success. Even par makes the cut here most years, with the three-hole ‘Snake Pit’ providing the final hurdle for players coming down the stretch.
Purse: $6.9 million
Defending champion: Paul Casey (-8)
