2020 Barracuda Championship: 3 drivable par 4s elevate event

PGA Tour opposite-field event moves to Tahoe Mountain Club’s Old Greenwood course in Truckee, Calif., after 21 years in Reno, Nev.

3: Number of drivable par 4s at Tahoe Mountain Club’s Old Greenwood course, the site of this week’s Barracuda Championship on the PGA Tour. Old Greenwood, which sits at approximately 6,000 feet of elevation in the Sierra Nevada at Truckee, Calif., will be making its debut as host of the opposite-field event. With the modified Stableford scoring format rewarding aggressive play, expect some fireworks from the field at the 357-yard eighth hole, the 345-yard 11th and the 396-yard 16th, according to a report from Jim McCabe on PGATour.com. The Barracuda Championship, formerly known as the Reno-Tahoe Open, was played since its 1999 debut at Montreux Golf and Country Club in Reno, Nev. (tee times).
