Golf Picks

 

Collin Morikawa +112 vs. Scottie Scheffler

I am a big fan of Scheffler and there is no question I will be taking him in more matchups this season, but not this week. Scheffler has not played well in this event in the past including a missed cut last year and I don’t know that he simply bounces right back from last week’s missed cut at the PGA. Morikawa is overdue for a win and I think it might happen this week. He lost this event in a playoff two years ago. I’ll take Morikawa at plus money in this matchup against Scheffler.

 

Sungjae Im -120 vs. Tony Finau

Im will be making his fourth appearance in this event and he tied for 10th two years ago. He comes in well rested, as he missed the PGA due to COVID. This course really suits his game well as it demands accuracy and strong short iron play. Neither of those two things are a strength of Finau. I will take Im in this matchup.

 

Maverick McNealy -152 vs. Rickie Fowler

McNealy has been very accurate off the tee this year and he ranks highly in approach shots. He is oftentimes underrated by many people but the oddsmakers are not underrating him, as he is favored in this matchup against Fowler. It has been a long time since Fowler contended, as his game is simply not where it once was. I’ll take McNealy in this matchup.

 

Abraham Ancer -114 vs. Mito Pereira

I can’t see anything other than a letdown this week from Pereira. I also think that this course really suits Ancer well, as he is accurate off the tee and he putts well. Ancer finished in a tie for 14th in each of the last two years in this event. I will take Ancer in this matchup.

 

Gary Woodland -120 vs. Cameron Tringale

Woodland finished in 9th place in this event two years ago and he tied for 14th last year. He comes in playing well even with a poor final round last week in the PGA Championship. Tringale is one of my go-against players and it worked out well again last week with another matchup win. I’ll go against him again this week and take Woodland in this matchup.
