We are back for another week of Outlaw Tour golf and we are only two weeks away from the PGA Tour returning to action. While it’s likely a pipe dream, I hope Outlaw golf sticks around on DraftKings even when the PGA Tour is back. This week’s event starts on Tuesday and features a field of 75 golfers. Unlike most mini tour events, we actually have some course history to work with. This same event was played here in September and two Q School events were held here in 2018 and 2019. Ak-Chin Southern Dunes Golf Club is a Par 72 that measures over 7,500 yards.
While this is desert golf (ball carries and rolls farther), it’s still the longest course that we’ve seen over the last couple of months. Based on some of the names at the top of leaderboards here in the past, it’s not a bad idea to load up on the bombers. The difficult part is trying to figure out which of these golfers are long off the tee since we don’t have any driving distance statistics to work with. In terms of course difficulty, the last three winners here finished at -21 (three rounds), -17 (four rounds), and -16 (four rounds).
