This Week – AT&T Byron Nelson

Lace ’em up TIGHT and go low!

Everyone seems to be taking part in for one thing this week.

Some angles are related whereas some are utterly totally different.

The profitable rating gained’t care about intent; going low is all that issues.

Birdie festivals can free the thoughts, swing and placing stroke so don’t be stunned this week in the event you have a look at the chief board Sunday afternoon and surprise what has occurred.

People ought to get wholesome this week as a result of they know what this course offers (birdies) and that’s simpler to course of than grinding out pars. Being aggressive is how most of those guys received to the place they’re, standing be damned, and will take pleasure in every week of swinging driver and firing at flags.

The eclectic combine on the chief board shouldn’t come as any shock because the ebbs and flows of TOUR life can transfer a distinct tempo relying on the time-space continuum.  

Some guys will thrive on the strain of getting to attain. Others will probably be engaged on sure segments of their video games that can translate subsequent week on the second main of the season.

I don’t see 25-under taking dwelling the title once more however I’d wager 20-under or higher ought to suffice.

THE CHOICE: Will Zalatoris (+2200)

Rested and able to go he arrives on three straight prime 10 paychecks and solely ONE THING is lacking from his CV: Victory.

With one occasion below his belt right here he ought to have the scar tissue of what did and didn’t work as he cashed T17 final yr hitting 65 of 72 GIR.

Information of the placing surfaces will assist this time round as a result of his iron play hasn’t regressed a bit over 12 months.

The challenges of constructing as many birdies as potential ought to resonate as properly!

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

Scottie Scheffler (+1000): Identical concept with Rahm in Mexico. Much less guys to beat. Much less strain. Or it can save you him for Tulsa the place he shot 64 in a apply spherical final week. I’m not speaking you out of both one! He’s on auto pilot!

Justin Thomas (+1100): Earlier proof would counsel a birdie fest is true up his alley. His 59 at Sony mixed with a profitable whole of 253 is ridiculous and file setting. And that was on a Par 70!

Sam Burns (+1800): Opened 65-62 and was 20-under after 54. Similar to final yr he arrives on the again of a win at Valspar.

Jordan Spieth (+2200): Opened with 63 final yr and completed T9. Rolls in off a win at Harbour City with hardly his greatest however his putter will want a giant week within the huge open subject.

Dustin Johnson (+2200): Final time we noticed him was on Insta at his marriage ceremony after RBC Heritage. Excellent monitor to land softly and heat up for Southern Hills. Making birdies on straightforward programs has by no means been his difficulty however one “off” spherical this week they usually’ll all fly by!

Xander Schauffele (+2200): I wrote about him in PGATOUR Decide ‘Em above. Lid is off. Birdies rolling in. Likes Weiskopf as his file signifies (T17 or higher in 5 at TPC Scottsdale) and his sport doesn’t have many holes.

Hideki Matsuyama (+2500): One other who loves Weiskopf’s TPC Scottsdale and one other who will destroy Par-5 holes. Makes birdies for enjoyable however the likelihood you’ll take is his degree of concern. He WD at Valero earlier than the Masters final month and was T39 right here final yr.

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.

Jason Kokrak (+5000): Kilos it, putts it.

Jason Day (+5000): Larger targets this week off the tee and into the inexperienced ought to free him up. The placing and quick sport isn’t the difficulty. Now, about that again…

Davis Riley (+6600): Final time we noticed him was solo fifth in Mexico as he crammed it up. Arduous to leap off now!

Lanto Griffin (+7500): T6-T15 final two outings and I used to be on him final week. Journey on!

Patrick Rodgers (+16000): KH Lee was 165-1 final yr so I’m digging deep. Trending in the correct route and with loads of room to overlook off the tee he must be inspired!

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

Charl Schwartzel (+20000), Greyson Sigg (+22500), James Hahn (+22500), Justin Decrease (+35000),

Final Time – Wells Fargo Championship

THE CHOICE: Tony Finau (+2800) – T41

Likelihood taken.

Posted his first two rounds within the 60s and that was it.

Hitting as many fairways as he did (T13) I assumed could be advantageous.


The iron play from Mexico didn’t carry over however my disappointment on this format did!

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

Rory McIlroy (+900): Should you’re on him you’re hoping for a repeat of Congressional  in 2011 when he blasted the sphere on a moist, lengthy Congo Blue monitor. He’ll defend on the RCB Canadian Open in June in the event you haven’t burned him already. Solo fifth in US Open circumstances was irritating. His second greatest weekend whole to… checks notes… Cameron Younger, was, er, one thing.

Corey Conners (+2000): Burned him at Valero and naturally it was his worst end in endlessly. #URWELCOME. No Canadian has gained the Canadian Open since 1954 so yeah. There’s no draw back this week. T21 as his greatest spherical was his first spherical, 69, good.

Matt Fitzpatrick (+2000): T18 or higher each time he makes the lower in 2022 and this monitor ought to arrange completely for him. Each time I kind that he flames out on me. Correct and an awesome putter regardless of Harbour City, he’ll take pleasure in a good parkland driving examination. Get pleasure from he did as he shared second place when Keegan Bradley didn’t stand up and down on the 72nd gap.

Russell Henley (+3000): In a vacuum I like him greater than I do mixed along with his present type. There’s not one method that trumps the opposite however MC-T30-T60 getting into the week doesn’t fill me with the arrogance others have in him. Throw in some blah climate and I’m strolling away.  T41as he didn’t equal or break par within the last three rounds.

Abraham Ancer (+3000): Handed on the house sport in San Antonio (again) and knocked the rust off with T42 in entrance of the house nation followers in Vallarta. If he was wholesome, I’m right down to clown. Tread cautiously. Unbelievable 69-68 begin was adopted by 76-76 weekend (T56) provides extra inquiries to a participant with few current ancers, er, ANSWERS.

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.

Tyrrell Hatton (+3300): High 30 or higher in every single place he goes. This was a troublesome lay down for me this week as I’m going to experience the warmth of Finau based mostly on my selections left. He will get higher the nearer he will get to the opening and there’s no person higher on the greens this season (No. 1 SG: Placing). Distress loves firm! Sitting 4 below after 36 holes 76-72 weekend didn’t encourage. Neither did T37 and a streak damaged.

Sergio Garcia (+3500): Hasn’t been occurring for the Spaniard tee to inexperienced and that’s the place he normally excels. Household man is busy with youngsters. Outburst over a guidelines difficulty gave us an perception on what’s going on outdoors the ropes. T21 in a vacuum must be taken as a W right here. Now, about that journey to London…

Gary Woodland (+3500): Final 5 paydays are T24 or higher with three prime 10s included. The highest 10s have been on demanding tracks at PGA Nationwide, Bay Hill and TPC San Antonio.  Fascinating. MC in lower than stellar circumstances.  Ought to be thrilled for near excellent climate in Tulsa.

Keegan Bradley (+3500): These are the weeks to hurry him to the entrance of the road and watch him go. Hit T11 or higher in 4 of his final six together with T8 at Valero and T4 at Zurich. Sure. Properly, I’d say I nailed this one as he cashed T2. Within the struggle till the ultimate putt and that’s all you’ll be able to ask for. Kind is fireplace.

Paul Casey (+4000): Final time I endorsed him he performed two holes and WD. That was after his pre event WD at Valspar. Please, you go first. I’ll be over right here hiding below the covers. Gave it a attempt on the vary and determined higher. Pre tourney WD, once more.

Webb Simpson (+4000): I don’t have the precise quote however it goes one thing like this: Charlotte is our week to entertain (as he’s a member at QHC) however Wyndham is all enterprise. Not having a prime 30 in 2022 makes me glad I’m holding on till Greensboro in August so he can warmth up. One other week, one other damp fart. Neck points have bothered him to the purpose his greatest payday in 2022 is T35 twice.

Jhonattan Vegas (+4000): Presidents Cup yr and he’s been glorious minus a podium. It’s a tee to inexperienced week and he suits. T15 and one other notch within the belt of confidence.

Max Homa (+4000): One other who has gained at QHC and Riviera and that’s proof the sport travels. Cashing checks for enjoyable this season.I don’t consider each participant on the board outdoors the plain chalk. His fourth win reiterates his confidence and execution tee to inexperienced.  WINNER.

Matt Kuchar (+4500): His sport clicked into gear at a tough Valspar after which rattled off again to again podiums after not qualifying for the Masters. Journey on, Kuch! Opening 67 continued his advantageous type however taking part in the ultimate 54 holes 10-over despatched a transparent reminder this isn’t computerized shifting ahead. Realized via dwelling.

Marc Leishman (+4500): Acquainted searching grounds for the Aussie attempting who’s trending in the correct route. Class is everlasting and so is his love for Virginia. Related but totally different to Simpson, we’re ready…MC.

Keith Mitchell (+5000): See Decide ‘Em above. Or shut your eyes and run!!!!! MC.

Sepp Straka (+6000): Dream season is rooted in tee to inexperienced execution. Pretty longer shot this week. Was it the climate? Unfamiliar monitor? Sure? MC. Sigh.

David Lipsky (+7000): Final 4 begins = 3 prime 10s. High 51 in each Fairways and GIR. Kyle Stanley gained this occasion in 2017 shedding strokes on the greens. Rode the warmth however I’ll level out the MC are on two of the tougher tracks on TOUR. Be taught one thing.

Lanto Griffin (+9000):  Went to VCU and is aware of the realm. T6. Sigh.

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

Anirban Lahiri – T6, Brendan Steele – T51, Doc Redman – MC, Nate Lashley – WD, Beau Hossler – Beat two gamers, MC.

Humorous Cash :

Dylan Frittelli (+12500) – T46, Adam Svensson (+17500) – MC (66-79), Cam Percy (+30000) – MC, David Lingmerth (+60000) – T46
