The PGA Tour heads to West Virginia this week for The Greenbrier Classic. The Greenbrier was host to the infamous Ryder Cup matches back in 1979, Mark James and Ken Brown received the highest fines in professional golf up to this point. James received a £1500 fine for "unprofessional conduct" and Brown was fined £1000 and banned from international duty for 12 months.

They seemed to go out of their way to be the bad boys, they didn't wear the team uniform on the flight, they missed team meetings, appeared disinterested at the opening ceremony and, to cap it all, Brown completely ignored Des Smyth, his playing partner, in their foursomes match against Tom Kite and Hale Irwin.

As you would expect with the WGC Bridgestone Invitational next week and the USPGA Championship the following week, there is a strong field competing this week. What also makes this tournament intriguing is many players will be trying to get into the Top 50 so they can compete in next weeks WGC event and those who have not yet qualified for the USPGA, will be looking to book their places.

Originally designed back in 1914 by Charles Blair Macdonald and Seth Raynor, it underwent a redesign back in 2006 to try to get the course back to as near as possible to the original design, this work was undertaken by Lester George. The Old White TPC has been toughened up since last season, when Stuart Appleby fired a final round 59 to win, the greens have been re-seeded with bent grass to make them firmer, the fairways will be tighter, the rough thicker and the course longer.

Our picks to Win: Phil Mickelson 8/1 comes in on a high after his unexpected (by us) runners-up finish at the Open Championship, Phil will be happier on familiar ground and even though the tighter fairways may not suit his game, look for him to be in the mix come Sunday.

Jeff Overton 20/1 comes into the Greenbrier Classic on a good run of form, with a tied third at the AT&T and 38th in the Open Championship, he was runner up here last year, so look for Jeff to go one better this year.

Sergio Garcia 16/1 looks not only to be back to good form, but more importantly enjoying his golf again and his ninth place finished at The Open followed his seventh place finish at the US Open.

Good each-way bets: Ryan Palmer 40/1 currently sits in 52nd place in the world rankings a good finish here could see him move into the Top 50 and there by securing a place in next weeks WGC event.

Tommy Gainey 50/1 is having a roller coaster year, missed cuts followed by Top 10 finishes, but itís a year that he seems to be taking in his stride. A good finish last week at the Canadian Open and a 7th place finish at the John Deere Classic could see some much needed consistency coming into his game.

John Daly 200/1 it might be worth having a couple of pound on John at these odds, especially after a great finish last week on a very tough track for the Canadian Open
