Former Winners at The Greenbrier Return to Historic Course for Next LIV Golf Tournament

After a two-tournament stint in Europe, LIV Golf returns for the first of three events in the United States with this week’s LIV Golf Greenbrier event in West Virginia.

LIV Golf Odds

This is the first time the circuit will head to the historic course, but many LIV players are no strangers to The Old White. More than half of the field has played here when the course held a PGA Tour event from 2010-19 (except in 2016, when it was canceled due to severe flooding in West Virginia).

The two most recent winners here (Joaquin Niemann and Kevin Na) are in the field, as is 2015 winner Danny Lee. In all, 10 members of the 48-man field have logged a top-10 finish on this course. So unlike many LIV events, there is some history to draw on as the golfers descend upon a course for the first time under the LIV banner.

The Course

The Greenbrier is a luxury resort in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia, a few hours’ drive away from Washington, D.C. A total of 28 U.S. presidents have stayed at the hotel and a bunker was built on the grounds that was meant to hold the entire United States Congress during the Cold War era in case of a disaster in the nation’s capital.

The resort has four golf courses. LIV will be playing on The Old White, which hosted the PGA Tour last decade and also played host to the 1979 Ryder Cup, which was the first to feature the U.S. vs. Europe format.

The course is a par-70, 7,286-yard track and is unique in that its finishing hole is a par 3. Expect low scores; the PGA Tour record of 59 in one round was achieved here two times. One of those 59s was shot by Stuart Appelby in 2010, and he holds the 72-hole record with a 22-under 258.

Cam Smith Favored to Win Second LIV Event in a Row

Cameron Smith (+750)

Despite not being able to defend his title at The Open Championship two weeks ago, Cameron Smith comes here with plenty of momentum. Smith won in London, which was the most recent LIV event, and has a worst finish of 12th in his last six tournaments. He sits second in the season-long points standings.

Smith struggled on the green at Royal Liverpool, but his putting has been excellent before that. Expect Smith to rebound and make up for his performance in the year’s final major in golf.

Other LIV Golf Greenbrier Contenders

Brooks Koepka (+1100)

Has cooled a bit since his LIV win in Orlando, a runner-up at the Masters, and winning the PGA Championship. But even so, Brooks Koepka got two third-place finishes since May and sits third in the standings. Despite being a mainstay on the PGA Tour, this is his first time teeing it up at The Old White.

Bryson DeChambeau (+1200)

Did compete here one time, finishing 14th in 2017. The big hitter, who finished runner-up at Valderrama, had his run of top 10s end at three following a 13th in London. Bryson was 60th at the British Open two weeks ago, so we’ll see if he can regain his form that nearly earned him a victory on the LIV tour.

Patrick Reed (+1400)

Has been close to his first LIV victory nearly all year, coming in the top five four times in nine events, which includes a runner-up to Smith in London. Reed wasn’t able to figure this course out on the PGA Tour, however, as his best finish in four tries was 20th.

Joaquin Niemann (+1600)

Won the last major professional golf tournament here in 2019. He was also fifth the year prior. Joaquin Niemann hasn’t contended for a win since joining LIV nearly a year ago, but he’s turned it on a bit as of late, logging three top 10s in his last five starts.

Sebastian Munoz (+1800)

Has the combination of good form (four top 10s in nine starts) and a solid history at the West Virginia resort (a pair of top 10s in two trips, including a third in 2017.

Cameron Tringale (+2000)

Is the most experienced golfer on this course, having played in all nine of the PGA Tour’s events here. While he missed the cut in four of those, he also has a pair of fourth-place efforts. Tringale hasn’t been spectacular in 2023, but he does have a top five and three other top 10s in his last six starts.

Harold Varner III (+2000)

Won the last LIV event in the U.S.—and not far from here in the Washington, D.C. area. Varner’s worst finish in three Greenbrier events was 29th, and he had a fifth-place finish in 2018.

LIV Golf Greenbrier Longshots

Kevin Na (+2500)

Hasn’t had the season he’s been looking for in 2023, but coming to a course where he’s triumphed in the past should help his confidence. Na was eighth in D.C. for his second top 10 of the year, and he was 15th in his most recent outing in London.

Henrik Stenson (+2500)

Won at Bedminster last year, which is the site of next week’s LIV event. In recent weeks, he placed ninth at LIV Golf London and had a solid showing at the British Open, finishing 13th at Hoylake.

After starting the season with a win in Mexico, Charles Howell III (+4500) has dropped off as of late. But after taking nearly a month off after London, seeing a familiar course should help; Howell has a top-10 finish here in eight starts.

Aside from Smith, who has played well despite a hiccup at Royal Liverpool, there’s value in the bunched-up odds board. We like Reed, Niemann, Munoz, Varner, and Stenson to fare well on a course they’re familiar with.
