This Week – Mexico Open at Vidanta

South of the border, Mexico approach!

Greg Norman has programs everywhere in the world and throughout Mexico so the professionals aren’t leaping in blind this week. This would be the fourth occasion of the 2021-2022 season on Paspalum as properly.

The sector isn’t a lot to jot down house about however the 144 who’ve made the journey couldn’t care much less. The prize cash, exemptions and FedExCup factors are very actual and can go a great distance for many.

Solely six of the OWGR prime 50 are teeing it up this week so that provides us two angles to deal with. Jon Rahm ought to stroll this or the “others” ought to be frothing on the mouth to get a bit of a $7.3 million prize pool with out having to have the rounds of their lives.

It’s fascinating and that’s what all of us desire. And if Rahm doesn’t pull a Rory/DJ Canadian Open present up and kill everybody deal, this week ought to be wider than huge open.

Though they’ve added size and bunkers, I’ll level out, like Mayakoba, is a resort course. 20-under (climate allowing) ought to be the goal this week as robust greens and bunkering for vacationers doesn’t translate to issue for TOUR execs.  And normally with a primary occasion the arrange ought to favor PLEASE COME BACK AND PLAY US AGAIN versus what the hell was THAT??? They received’t put the pins on each edge or slope however the greens look like the place the problem will happen this week.

Get pleasure from!

THE CHOICE: Davis Riley (+6000):

I’ve already burned Jon Rahm so I don’t should even take into account sending him to the plate this week so I’ve already received. Taking a flyer right here with a teen that has no downside working up the rating. His 62 at Valspar grabbed our consideration as did his 75-80 MC at Harbour City the place he wanted 16 SHOTS to play the 18th gap over two days. All of that was washed away final week as he partnered with Will Zalatoris within the quest to birdie each gap daily at TPC Louisiana.

They squared one bogey on the week.

I’ll have my ideas on who the bookmakers like under.

Heat Blankets: The blokes who ought to. Protected alternatives that can assist keep leads. Opinions on why or why not for this occasion or save for later.

Jon Rahm (+450): Is it simpler to win this week on this discipline than a significant championship of FedExCup Playoff occasion? Incredible query, eh? This stage of expertise is sweet sufficient to run into one with out the prep, psychological and build-up as he would wish for main week. The cynic in me additionally says he’s checking off one of many “I have to play a couple of new occasions yearly so let’s do that one” field.

Abraham Ancer (+1600): It’s his open however he hasn’t been the very best Mexican finisher at Mayakoba the previous few years. That title belongs to Carlos Ortiz (learn HFC). Ancer mysteriously skipped (gave no purpose that I’ve seen) his “house” occasion at Valero after which fizzled on the Masters. If something, he’s rested and rearing to go to win nationwide open.

Gary Woodland (+2000): Fascinating trip for the massive hitter this spring as he’s MC the massive occasions and contended in all places else. This week categorizes as in all places else so I’d count on him to be within the dialog similar to he was at Valero, Honda and API.

Tony Finau (+2000): Fast! Identify his final prime 10 since his win in September. You may break him out! I’ll level out he’s received in Puerto Rico on Paspalum and has been respectable at Mayakoba (a pair of prime 10s).

Kevin Na (+2500): Identified for strolling in putts players ought to keep in mind he’s eleventh Fairways and 61st GIR. That travels. And if he begins strolling them in…

Spicy: This is likely to be every week for sending out an “unknown” and saving a begin. You simply would possibly get fortunate. Or MC.

Cameron Tringale (+3000): The primary one is all the time the hardest however he’s been flashing all through 2022 that it’s coming.

Aaron Clever (+3000): Considered one of simply 4 to sit down thirtieth or higher in SG: Tee to Inexperienced this week.

Patrick Reed (+3000): If there’s loads of room to swing it off the tee and massive targets to hit from the golf green, not many putt higher. Fascinating.

Chris Kirk (+3500): Solely Rahm is best tee to inexperienced this week.

Aaron Rai (+5000): New greens for everybody highlights his talents tee to inexperienced.

Mark Hubbard (+6000): Incredible type throughout each TOURS highlighted by a really strong quick recreation. Massive fairways and greens this week ought to hold him rollin’.

JT Poston (+8000): Closed 68-64 at Harbour City for his finest since without end.

Brian Stuard (+10000): Wrote about him lots already.

3 AM on the Blackjack Desk: Warning is thrown to the wind. Perhaps not the very best for this format however what the hell, proper? Would possibly throw these in if you happen to’re in want of a miracle.

Scott Piercy, Brice Garnett, Tyler Duncan, David Lipsky, Nate Lashley

Humorous Cash :

Ben Griffin, Invoice Haas, Camilo Villegas, Roberto Diaz, Carlos Ortiz (harm issues)

Final Time – Zurich Traditional

When the 8-1 favorites money, all you are able to do is throw your arms up and don your cap to the winners.

Actually, that’s true of any occasion we chase on this format. We shouldn’t be shocked when the very best gamers win.

TPC Louisiana performed as simple because it ever has with a whopping 17 groups tying final yr’s successful whole. I do know these guys are good however that’s ridiculous. They should yearly battle the wonderful line between aggressive and easy-going so the premium gamers don’t stroll away pissed off, bought it.

However setting and tying the course file in fourballs in consecutive rounds BY THE SAME TEAM is a bit a lot.

Since I didn’t play stated staff, it’s even worse.

The companion recreation is/was enjoyable however I’m completely satisfied to be again to regular service this week.

THE CHOICE: Ian Poulter (Shane Lowry)

Should you would have instructed me earlier than the occasion began that they’d put all 4 rounds 70 or higher and posted 21-under I’d have minimize my arm off for that deal.

Not my good arm however you get the purpose.

21-under would have hit the rostrum within the final three editions and received final yr. This time round it wasn’t adequate to crack the highest 12.

And neither are my OAD picks.

Seems to be like I took the mistaken “hottest golfer” round.

I had Schauffele out there however determined to avoid wasting him for down the street.

That is turning out to be like Boyz II Males’s Finish of the Highway as a substitute.

No matter.

Heat Blankets: The blokes who ought to. Protected alternatives that can assist keep leads. Opinions on why or why not for this occasion or save for later.

Ryan Palmer (Scottie Scheffler): Anytime you may get Scheffler twice in a season is a very good concept! For these of you who haven’t pulled the set off but he’s stated that Southern Hills is his favourite course. OK THEN! Oh, and Palmer appears to play awfully properly right here so there’s that too hahahahaha. Ideas and prayers to Palmer for not changing with the No. 1 participant in OWGR. I hope he finds energy in T18. It was nonetheless the fitting play on this format, no questions requested!

Marc Leishman (Cameron Smith): I’m guessing most have burned the one in (   ) whereas Leesh hasn’t caught hearth but. The defending champs have been a troublesome lay down for me this week.No hearth within the stomach this time round for the previous champions as they couldn’t crack off any low ones in fourball and that’s required right here as they each know. T21.

Sam Burns (Billy Horschel): Nothing mistaken with loading up on the house recreation for Burns particularly after he defended at Valspar. Horschel is salty as ever as he’s been knocking all spring however hasn’t been capable of decide the lock on Sunday. T4 final yr ought to have them thirsting for extra. Noticed the winners SIX SHOTS in fourball however simply got here up two quick ultimately for solo second. They’ve already introduced they’ll be again subsequent yr as T4 become solo second of their earlier two journeys.

Tommy Fleetwood (Sergio Garcia): I can’t assist however discover that Fleetwood has lastly discovered some type once more within the States. His previous outcomes on this occasion with Garcia (2nd) and Chris Paisley! (T4) additionally stand out. I don’t love their odds however I see why they’re so quick. Garcia’s file speaks for itself. No Ryder Cup magic or voodoo this time round as 75 in alternate shot sunk the ship. MC.

Talor Gooch (Max Homa): Too many arrows pointing in too many appropriate instructions for this pair of mashers as I’ve written already. Considered one of many to gather T21 cash.

Spicy: This is likely to be every week for sending out an “unknown” and saving a begin. You simply would possibly get fortunate. Or MC.

Chile Boys: Pereira has been banging prime 30s for enjoyable all season lengthy as a result of he destroys fairways and greens. All the things it’s essential to learn about Niemann was realized as he smoked Riviera in February. Pereira needed to WD with a again harm earlier than Spherical 2.

AnIm: Good further shot at Sungjae and his means to make 1,000,000 birdies. Ben An was second on his personal ball right here in 2016 and almost received on the KFT lately. Great OAD worth as An doesn’t even have standing. T14 because the Koreans barbecued TPC Louisiana to the tune of 20-under. I want I used to be AnIm this week. Did you see what I did there?

Zalatoris/Riley: Verify Choose ‘Em. T4, as anticipated.

McDowell/Energy: Similar. MC as sudden.

Patton Kizzire/JT Poston: Good ham and eggs right here and each putt lights out on Bermuda. Poston season’s finest T3 at RBC shouldn’t harm and Kizzire has cashed six of his final seven plus owns a pair of prime 10s right here. MC.

3 AM on the Blackjack Desk: Warning is thrown to the wind. Perhaps not the very best for this format however what the hell, proper? Would possibly throw these in if you happen to’re in want of a miracle.

Straka/Sigg – MC, Laird/MacIntyre  MC, Garnett/Stallings – MC, Brehm/Hubbard -T14, Duncan/Schenk -T14
