The tour heads to Louisiana this week for the Zurich Classic, which will feature a new team format for the 69th edition of the event.
Here are 5 teams to keep an eye on at TPC Louisiana:
5. Daniel Berger / Thomas Pieters
Both of these two young players are producing some solid golf coming into the tournament. Pieters posted a final-round 68 at The Masters, for a T4 result, and earned four points in last year’s Ryder Cup for Team Europe. Berger placed fifth at the Houston Open and made the cut at The Masters, finishing in a tie for 27th.
4. Louis Oosthuizen / Branden Grace
The two South Africans were the best players for the International squad at the 2015 Presidents Cup. Grace and Oosthuizen were teamed on four occasions in that event, and won all four matches.
3. Jordan Spieth / Ryan Palmer
The two Texans are playing consistent golf. Palmer placed T6 last week in San Antonio and is ranked 12th in strokes gained tee-to-green, 15th in strokes gained off the tee, and 34th in driving distance. Spieth is second in GIR, fourth in proximity to the hole, and eighth in putting average.
2. Jason Day / Rickie Fowler
Day hasn't played his best this season due to personal reasons, but the Aussie had a decent tournament at The Masters, with a T22. The world No. 3 has played well at TPC Louisiana the last two visits, finishing T4 and T5, with a 67.42 scoring average in the last seven rounds there. Fowler may have faded in the final round of The Masters, but the 28-year-old has been hot this year, with a win and two top-5 results.
1. Henrik Stenson / Justin Rose
Rose almost won at Augusta, and has three other top-5 results this season. The Englishman won at TPC Louisiana in 2015, and has finished in the top 10 on two other occasions. Stenson is still trying to find his game after a career year in 2016, but he's not going to play poorly forever. The duo played together six times as a team at the Ryder Cup, and won four of those matches.
