Course: Coco Beach Golf Club (Championship): Par 72, 7,506 yards

The better golfers will be battling it out in match play in Austin, while those clawing for FedExCup points and cold hard cash head to Puerto Rico. Coco Beach Golf Club is an oceanside track at the foothills of the El Yunque Rainforest. With no shortage of water in play, total driving is preferenced over driving distance this week. Seadwarf paspalum greens are well bunkered and come in a variety of sizes, so maintaining close proximity is key to avoid both bunkers and exceedingly long putts. Approach play from 125 to 175 yards is paramount at the Tom Kite-designed track.

Creme de la creme

Graham DeLaet: $10,600

Don't worry too much about Graham DeLaet's missed cut at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, as he was in form prior. He's finished inside the top 25 his last three turns at Coco Beach Golf Club, and his No. 167 Official World Golf Ranking is near the top of this weak field. The Canadian is 14th in strokes gained: off-the-tee this season and 67th in strokes gained: approach. Plus, he's actually putting well.
