About the Barracuda Championship PGA Golf Tournament

The 21st annual Barracuda Championship will be from Monday, July 22 through Sunday, July 28, 2019. This PGA Tour golf tournament is held at Montrêux Golf & Country Club in the Galena area of south Reno. Barracuda Championship tournament play begins on Thursday, July 25, following the Barracuda Championship Pro-Am Tournament.

The Barracuda Championship is a big-time professional sports event. It is the only PGA Tour event played in Reno and one of only 46 PGA Tour golf tournaments in the world.

Top PGA pro golfers play in the Barracuda Championship. Past winners have included Kirk Triplett, Vaughn Taylor, John Cook, Will MacKenzie, John Rollins, Matt Bettencourt, and the 2018 champion Andrew Putnam.

There will be 132 top PGA players competing for a purse of $3.5 million at the 2019 Barracuda Championship. The Barracuda Championship is the only PGA Tour event using the Modified Stableford scoring format, which encourages more aggressive and exciting play. The field is cut to the top 70 players on Saturday of tournament week.

The Barracuda Championship is preceded by the Barracuda Championship Pro-Am Tournament. No other tier-1 professional sporting event affords sponsors and their guests the exclusive opportunity to play alongside professional athletes and enjoy world-class hospitality.
