Should TPC Craig Ranch be a PGA Tour venue? Golf fans have their say...

After three rounds of the AT&T Byron Nelson, Sebastian Munoz leads by one shot on 21-under-par from Jordan Spieth, looking for his second win on the PGA Tour.

TPC Craig Ranch has been at the mercy of the players this week. It is fair to say that the players haven't experienced a test comparable to other courses on the circuit in 2022.

The course hosted the AT&T Byron Nelson in 2021 and this was the first time that the McKinney track had been used on the PGA Tour.

It is set to host the tournament for the next four years and it has hosted Korn Ferry Tour events and qualifiers in previous years. It is a par-72 designed by Tom Weiskopf which opened in 2004.

We noticed a tweet by Tron Carter, who is part of the popular No Laying Up podcast, who questioned if TPC Craig Ranch should be used as a venue on the PGA Tour.

There are five events that take place in Texas on tour in the 2022 season: the Houston Open, the WGC Match Play, the Valero Texas Open, the AT&T Byron Nelson and the Charles Schwab Challenge.

Carter suggested if you were to remove one event from the Texas quintet, it would be this week's event. This sparked an interesting debate on social media and we have picked out the main talking points below. Let us know what you think on our social media channels.
