At a course that will reward guys who can hit it long – watch out for Rory. Last week was an outlier in terms of SG Approach, mostly attributed to one bad round. On his preferred surface and won at a course similar to this earlier this season. A matter of when not if for Rory – and this week might be it.
Bit of a buy low opportunity here with DB. Was flat out awful with his putter last week, but was spot on with his irons. Approach game and off the tee have been solid. If his putter can do anything this week he should be a solid contender.
Xander Schauffele over Collin Morikawa
Xander a solid course fit and a bit of a buy low after he put it in the water a couple times on Monday to depress his round. Morikawa nursing a back injury and not sure where his game is at right now. Fade Morikawa and buy X-man this week.
Maverick McNealy over Max Homa
Pretty simple handicap here too. Maverick has been playing consistently decent over the past couple months. Homa not in great form and tends to play poorly in big tournaments. The hungriest dog eats first and Mav needs to be hungry this week as he is ranked 54th in the FedEx rankings.
