Jordan Spieth +2200

Sam Burns +2200

Joaquin Niemann +3500

*odds could change at any time 

 

Justin Thomas has been back and forth when it comes to consistency this season. Over the last few events, you can see him place within the top 10 and then bounce out. 

 

Thomas’s game translates well to this environment. As long as he continues to remain positive, this event could be his for the taking. 

 

Will Zalatoris might be the best value pick for a favorite to win, especially since he tied for 17th last year here. With his previous success compared to some of the other golfers on the field, he is playing confident at a course he already plays well at. 

 

Dustin Johnson might be worth a consideration if you believe he has found his stride. He has not played terrible golf lately, but it still is weird to see him behind the pack. Over the last few tournaments, he has looked much better than he did at the start of the season. 

 

Seamus Power is worth some attention as the 40th ranked golfer in the world. His climb up the rankings has been great to watch. 

 

Power missed the cut at the Wells Fargo Championship, but has played excellent at this event last year. During that time, he tied for ninth with a score of -18. 

 

Most Likely Favorite to Succeed 

 

Scottie Scheffler has transformed into a golfing sensation seemingly overnight. With a handful of victories on the season and now the best golfer in the world according to the rankings, he has a chance to stand out once again. 

 

Last year at this event was a completely different version of Scheffler. He finished tied for 47 with a final score of -11. 

 

This is one of Scheffler’s favorite golf courses to play at, which should bode well for his improved game as of late. As long as he feels like landing birdies, he should be in great shape.
