The PGA tour stays in sin city this week for the CJ Cup. But don’t worry, they’re not exactly slumming it. The Summit Country Club, nestled in Red Rock Canyon, looks across the desert to the lights of Las Vegas and looks like a stunning first time venue for the PGA Tour.

The visually stunning par 72, Tom Fazio designed course, runs out at 7,431 yards and seems like a track the pros will relish.

Blue Horseshoe Loves:

Dustin Johnson – currently at ? with

As anyone who follows me knows, I very rarely if ever take a favourite. But such was the quality of Dustin Johnson’s play at the Ryder Cup, I can’t help but take him this week. DJ didn’t drop a single point in five matches and his iron play looked imperious. It appears as if DJ’s game is back and, if that’s the case, then the rest of the field has a big problem.

Aaron Wise – currently at ? with

Wise is building back his game and has recorded a string of solid performances in this new season. He finished 8th last week in Vegas and I’m expecting another good showing this week at a course that seems fairly gettable for the longer hitters like Wise.

KH Lee – currently at ? with

KH Lee is a man I’m going to be following very closely this year. He had his break out win on the PGA Tour last season at the Byron Nelson Classic, a tournament he won with some authority. The win was on a similar desert based layout. I think he’s got a huge amount of talent and for me, Lee represents quite outstanding each way value for money at these odds.

Tom Hoge – currently at ? with

200/1 in a limited field event for a guy that went all the way to the final round of the Fedex Cup late last season? Yeah, I’ll take that thanks very much.
