PGA Tour Event: 2022 Barracuda Championship
Golf lovers, get ready! The 2022 Barracuda Championship is set for July 14 through 17. This will be the tournament’s third year at Tahoe Mountain Club’s Old Greenwood Golf Course. This course is a Jack Nicklaus Signature Design and is located in the Sierra Nevada mountains, approximately 30 minutes outside of Reno and North Lake Tahoe. The course is nearly 6,000 feet above sea level, which means that balls should travel 10 to 15% farther than at sea level. The event also uses an aggressive scoring format, so it's sure to be an exciting event!
All past champions since 2016 are first-time PGA TOUR champions. 2015 champion JJ Henry became the only competitor to win the Barracuda Championship twice (2012) since the scoring format was changed. The Barracuda Championship is the only PGA Tour event that uses Modified Stableford scoring. And it is the first PGA Tour event to accept cryptocurrency in payment for tickets, hospitality, and sponsorship packages.
