The Corales Puntacana Resort and Club Championship was originally part of the Web.com Tour and was first played in 2016. This is the first PGA Tour event in the Dominican Republic.

Last year, Graeme McDowell emerged as the winner. He won with a one-stroke win over Mackenzie Hughes and Chris Stroud.

A strong field of 144 parbusters will tee off in the 7,670-yard course. Leading the charge is former major champion Henrik Stenson. The Swedish golfer went up as high as world number two in the world golf rankings. He will attempt to claim his first US PGA title in three years. Standing in his way is 2019 titlist McDowell, who won the tournament by one stroke over Mackenzie Hughes and Chris Stroud. The 2010 US Open winner hopes to gain his second title this year. Other golfers taking part in the event are former US PGA Tour winners Ryan Armour, Corey Conners, 2018 Corales topnotcher Brice Garnett, 2017 champion Nate Lashley, Charles Howell III, Michael Kim, Patton Kizzire, Adam Long, Keith Mitchell, Cheng Tsung Pan, Pat Perez, Martin Trainer, and Kevin Tway.
In a deep field of former winners, ex-major champions Stenson and McDowell are a cut above the rest. Golf parlay bettors see the two Europeans as the likely favorites in this tournament. This year’s US PGA is holding their event outside America. This means it is anybody’s race as no one holds a hometown advantage. We could get a surprise winner in this tournament as no one has successfully defended their title. McDowell, Stenson, Howell, Hughes, and two-time major runnerup Chad Campbell are to contend in the event.
