The tournament is spread out over four courses for the first four rounds, while The Classic Club will host the final round. This is the first year for the SilverRock Golf Course being in the rotation and it will be in interesting to see how the pros do at this Arnold Palmer-designed course.

This is the only five-round event on the PGA Tour schedule and if that isn't enough, it has a penchant for playoffs as well. There have been 12 playoffs since 1982.
