Mental fortitude will be required once again at The Bahamas Great Exuma Classic at Sandals Emerald Bay. The weather should not pose quite as much as a challenge as last year, when tournament champion Kyle Thompson was the only player in the field under par, but the potential for storms and 20-mph winds should once again keep players on their toes throughout the week.
Among the top-10 finishers in Exuma last year, four went on to rank in the top 40 in driving accuracy, greens in regulation and scrambling on Tour. Additionally, none of last year’s top-10 finishers in Exuma ranked top-40 in driving distance. It seems that accuracy over power is the name of the game at the Greg Norman-designed Sandals Emerald Bay GC, and the majority of our Experts’ selections reflect that trend.
Every week of the 2018 Web.com Tour Regular Season, each of our Experts will select a four-player team for that week’s event.
No player can be selected more than three times by any one Expert during the Regular Season.
Here are this week’s Expert Picks for The Bahamas Great Exuma Classic at Sandals Emerald Bay.
