PHOTO: Padraig Harrington and I are tight, or maybe we both just like staying at the same Hilton Garden Inns during tournament weeks. He’s not one of my picks this week. This is not an easy tourmanent to qualify for and he did not. He’s a three time major winner and a heck of a nice guy though, i just wish he didn’t make me look so short.
Whole Tournament Match Ups
-120 Bryson DeChambeau over Hideki Matsuyama
The SMU product DeChambeau has been on fire, recording four top 5’s in the last six tournaments. Matsuyama is coming off a tough weekend in Orlando as he recorded scores of 80 and 77.
-125 Justin Thomas over Patrick Cantlay
Thomas have five top 10 finishers so far this season and is currently 2nd in the Fed Ex Cup standings. In 2016 Thomas scored a third place finish at Sawgrass. Cantlay may be rusty as he’s been away from the game for almost a month.
Top 20 Finishes
-125 Jon Rahm
Rahm is getting back in the swing of things coming off of getting married two weeks ago. If he’s at the top of his game the -125 price should be a steal.
+175 Webb Simpson
Simpson won in Phoenix in February and won this event two tournaments ago.
Top Left Hander
+150 Bubba Watson
+175 Phil Mickelson
+190 Brian Harman
Mickelson really had a rough time with the wind and hard greens in Orlando last week. If it is at all windy trusting Phil and Bubba will be hard to do considering they can be quite erratic in those type of conditions. Harman had a compete tournament at Sawgrass last season finishing in 8th position, so at that price I’ll take a shot with him.
HARRY'S PICK +190 Harman
Will any of these golfers hit it into the water on hole 17
+300 Yes on Dustin Johnson
+300 Yes on Brooks Koepka
Why not try the yes since both big name players have not been bringing their big time game to the golf course of late. When Johnson misses badly he misses extremely badly and Koepka recorded a score of 81 last week in Florida.
Good Luck !! Harry.
