Fans at The Greenbrier Classic were treated to low scores on a picturesque layout.

The Old White TPC at The Greenbrier proved to be a dynamic setting last year with bushels of birdies and a 59 from champion Stuart Appleby – the fifth such magic number in TOUR history.

For this year’s event the course has undergone a restoration. Bentgrass has been added to the greens, some 200 yards have been added to the scorecard and fairways have been tightened. How will that affect scoring? We’ll find out soon enough, but in the meantime here’s some stats from the 2010 Greenbrier, compliments of Alex Turnbull at ShotLink.
