Price Cutter Charity Championship Trends
The Price Cutter Charity Championship is one of four original events still played on the Web.com Tour. We look at the trends of past winners.
Highlands Spring CC is a regular stop on the schedule, a par-72 measuring 7,115 yards the course encourages low scoring. The last ten champions have all bettered 20-under.
With plenty of course form to call upon, the following trends have emerged over the years (data available for only 12 of last 15 winners):
Top-60 actual scoring average
11 of the last 12 winners have ranked inside the top-60 for scoring average, with Chris Wilson the outlier.
Top-60 all-around ranking
10 of the last 12 winners qualify for this metric, suggesting the cream rises to the top.
Top-60 par 4 performance
Taking advantage of the par-5s isn’t enough, past winners have also scored well on the par-4s.
Top-60 final round scoring
You have to stay aggressive to win. The last ten champions shot final rounds of 65-64-67-64-67-72-66-67-68-67 respectively.
Top-70 ball strikers
Nine of the last 12 winners have been ranked inside the top-70 for ball striking.
Outside Top-70 in driving distance
A strange quirk but previous champions haven’t been especially long off the tee despite rating highly for ball-striking. Highland Springs CC is more of a second shot course which brings modest hitters into play.
Players that fit all six trends:
