A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier: How to watch, and who to back this week
After a three week break following the Tour Championship, the PGA Tour returns for the first event of the 2019/20 season, A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier.
The tournament, which is played at The Old White TPC at The Greenbrier Resort in West Virginia, returns to the 49-event schedule after sitting out last season because of the newly shifted FedEx Cup playoffs.
In 2018 (part of the 2017/18 PGA Tour schedule), Kevin Na claimed his first victory in over seven years with a five stroke win over Kelly Kraft. He returns to defend this week, along with a raft of players who recently gained their Tour cards at the Korn Ferry Tour Finals that includes Viktor Hovland and Tom Lewis, who won the Korn Ferry Tour Championship by five strokes.
Below, find out how to watch, and who we've picked to watch this week.
