Tournament: Zurich Classic of New Orleans
Course: TPC Louisiana
Prize Fund: $6,100,000
Course Details: Par 72, 7,341 yards. This year the Zurich Classic returns to TPC Louisiana after a $2m renovation due to severe damage caused by Hurricane Katrina. The Pete Dye design is back to its former glory, with many testing short par 4?s that will provide the main battleground for the field.
Key Hole: The par 4 12th provides the course?s toughest challenge. The green is well protected by a bunker on the right, and a large chipping area on the left, meaning that Par is an excellent score on this hole that measures 486 yards.
David Toms (pictured) will start as favourite, as the highest ranked player in the field of his home state tournament. Boo Weekley will hope to follow up his win at the Verizon Heritage, whilst 2006 Classic winner Chris Couch returns to defend his title. Frenchman Thomas Levet and Swede Fredrik Jacobson are among the European contingent.
Contenders: David Toms, Heath Slocum, Mark Calcavecchia
