Frys.com Open shows TPC Canyons actually a better course than private TPC Summerlin
People tend to romanticize the course they cannot play over the course they can. It’s just golfers’ nature.
The Frys.com Open in Las Vegas is proving why that’s often wrong and foolhardy. For TPC Canyons - the high-end public course used in the Frys - is proving to be a tougher play for the pros than TPC Summerlin - the rich man’s private course.
With both courses being used in the first two rounds of the Frys, there remains little doubt which track brings more drama. PGA Tour players who have the option of practicing on either when they’re in Vegas have known this all along (though Jason Gore disagrees). TPC Canyons is tough enough to pummel you like a sumo wrestler if you’re spraying shots with all its showy forced carries and tricky greens.
No wonder the PGA guys are taking advantage of TPC Summerlin.
Journeyman pro Garrett Willis shot a 10-under 62 at Summerlin in the second round to take a share of the lead. John Daly put up a 63 at Summerlin after a opening round 74 at TPC Canyons.
Daly - a golfer with little brainpower - doesn’t want to see TPC Canyons again.
You should. It’s the better course. The one you can play in Vegas yourself. The public course. Believe it or not, that happens.

Great assessment of our courses. Traditionally the PGA Tour professionals favor our course because it demands accuracy off the tee. Our course also plays approximately one stroke more difficult than Summerlin.
With that being said, John Daly is one of eight players who hold our course record of 62.
We are proud to offer one of the best golf experiences in Las Vegas.
