The PGA Tour has visited some of the “scariest” sites on the calendar the past few weeks, as players have braved such sinister venues as “The Bear Trap” and “The Blue Monster”.
Well, there’s no let-up this week on the Copperhead Course at Innisbrook Resort - host of this week’s Valspar Championship. Players will have to tread lightly in order to successfully navigate the closing 3-hole stretch known as “The Snake Pit”.
Fast Fact: The Snake Pit ranked as the 5th toughest closing stretch of holes on Tour last year.
To get through this intimidating gauntlet unscathed, players will need complete trust in their golf ball. And the golf ball of choice is clear.
Of the 144 players in the filed this week at the Valspar Championship, 86 are trusting a Titleist Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball, nearly four times the nearest competitor with 22 and more than all competitors combined.
Titleist was also the favorite in the sand, lob and approach wedge category (138).
Earlier this week, as the tournament got underway, Florida’s west coast was hit by unseasonably raw and wet weather, conditions that are sure to make the Copperhead Course even more treacherous.

Good luck to all the players this weekend!
