Comments: Expert Picks for Transitions Championship

One of the more recent additions to the PGA Tour schedule, the Transitions Championship has gained steam over recent years following outstanding competitions filled with some of the best golfers from all around the world. Its place after the WGC Cadillac Championship brings more than a few international golfers to the field as they seek an extended stay in the States and such is the case again this year with what may rank as the best field this tourney has ever enjoyed. Formerly known by other names – including the Tampa Bay Classic, the Chrysler Championship, and the PODS Championship – the Transitions has been inviting those competitors to the links of Innisbrook for eleven years. Respected as one of the premier golf destinations in the United States, the Innisbrook Resort offers five different the courses with the Copperhead Course, this week's venue for the Transitions Championship, listed the most demanding. It is long (over 7,300 yards) and loaded with native water and vegetation known by all who have enjoyed southern Florida. Fairways are lined throughout with water and the greens, while forgiving, are among the most challenging in the area. Past champions include K.J. Choi and Retief Goosen (both two-time winners), Vijay Singh, Carl Pettersson, Mark Calcavecchia, Sean O'Hair, and the defending champ Jim Furyk. That list proves a talented set of irons are a necessity to compete at Innisbrook while length can be of benefit (though it is not a necessity). This year's group of participants may be as talented as any this course has seen and thus the adjoining ranking were a challenge, but fantasy owners will be blessed with multiple choices who could provide benefit this week.
