The PGA Tour’s annual stop at the Barracuda Championship in Reno, Nevada gets started August 2-5, 2018. Founded in 1999 as the Reno-Tahoe Open, it is an alternate event played opposite the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.
The format is one of a kind on the PGA Tour. For the seventh straight year, a Modified Stableford system will be used awarding points. The winning score will be around 44 points.
Last year Chris Stroud out lasted Richy Werenski and Greg Owen in a sudden death playoff to earn his first career win on the PGA Tour. It appeared Owen was in control with two holes left, but a timely bogey on No. 17 and a failure to birdie the easy, par-five No. 18, sealed his fate and paved the way for Stroud.
Vaughn Taylor and J.J. Henry are the only players to win the event twice. Other notable champions include Gary Woodland, Scott Piercy and John Cook.

Montreux Golf and Country Club is the host venue for this event and it has been since the inception of the tournament back in 1999. The only Jack Nicklaus Signature Design Golf Course in northern Nevada, these 18 holes wind through nearly 7,500 yard of our community.
It certainly is a picturesque setting with virtually the whole course being surrounded by forest, lakes and requires a golfer to use total driving ability. A very hot putter and ball striking is key as conditions are due to be windy. Stray from the fairway or green and bogeys are easy to come by.
Greg Chalmers won the Barracuda Championship at Montreux for his first PGA Tour title, eagling the final hole for a six-point victory in the modified Stableford scoring event.
The 42-year-old Australian broke through in his 386th start after entering the week as the active player with the most events without a victory.
A point ahead of Gary Woodland and needing at least a par on the par-5 18th to wrap up the victory, Chalmers made an 8-foot eagle putt after hitting a 320-yard drive and 230-yard approach. A few minutes earlier in the group ahead, Woodland three-putted for a bogey on 18.
Chalmers had a four-point round to finish with 43 in the system that awards eight points for double eagle, five for eagle, two for birdie and deducts a point for bogey and three for double bogey or worse. He also had two birdies and five bogeys, the last two on Nos. 15 and 17.
