The PGA Tour’s month-long Florida Swing enters Turn 3 with the Valspar Championship beginning Thursday at Innisbrook Resort, just outside Tampa. With the stout Florida lineup – a rising comet in the Honda Classic, a WGC (Trump Doral) and a date at Arnold Palmer’s place next week, the Valspar is easy to overlook, but Innisbrook’s Copperhead Course is an excellent tournament test. Its roster of past champions (which includes K.J. Choi, Retief Goosen, Vijay Singh, Jim Furyk) is ample proof it’s a great spot for top ballstrikers.
