+100 vs Scott Stallings
Weighted Stats: SG Approach, Driving Accuracy, Proximity to the Hole
Shane Lowry didn't play great last week but it was his first week back since the Open. I think he is overdue for a win and his stats are really favorable on this course. He is accurate off the tee and his around the green skills will definitely come into play this week, Lowry is also 2nd on tour in Proximity to the Hole which I think will be a key stat this week. Will Zalatoris and Morikawa both made my card this week because of their approach play. Both are extremely elite and could easily go very well this week on what shouldn't be a birdie fest which is ideal for both of them. Harold Varner has had a really good year so far and I like his outlook and odds this week. At 110/1 I really like Varner and especially top 20, he is 26th in SG Approach and 16th is SG Around the Green.
-120 vs Emiliano Grillo
Weighted Stats: Driving Accuracy, SG Around the Green, SG Approach
Sungjae Im is great around the green 6th in SG ARG on tour, I think that will be important this week. He is accurate off the tee and really good tee to green so he just needs his putter to come through for him. He has also been in great form this year even though he didn't finish great last week. Horschel is also great around the green and accurate off the tee, he's also one of the better putters on tour so I like his chances this week as well. Corey Conners really fits this course well even though he hasn't been in the greatest form this year. He is great off the tee and on approach but will need his putter to make a run this week. Viktor Hovland has been off since the Open and his disappointing final round there. I think he'll be able to shake that off though and his game should really go well on this course. He is great off the tee, elite on approach, and his putter is strong too. I like his price at 35/1 as well, when he's on his game he is one of the best on tour.
