The course

TPC Southwind is a 7,233-yard par 70 venue that formerly hosted the FedEx St. Jude Classic before the World Golf Championship's Invitational tournament was moved to the Memphis area in 2019.

The course, which is relatively long for a par 70 layout, features water on 11 holes and greens that are smaller than average in size. Daniel Berger is a two-time winner at the course, highlighting the fact that golfers with a good all-around game can contend and will not need to be a bomber to stand a chance.
