Collin Morikawa has nerves of steel…I’m now convinced. After his

scintillating comeback over Justin Thomas at the Workday Charity

Open last month, there was no question in my mind that he was

amongst the top-10 golfers in the world. But after what we saw on

Sunday at the PGA Championship, chipping in from the fairway

on 14 and driving the green to within 10 feet on 16 (making the

eagle putt) was simply magnificent to watch.

Last week’s first major of 2020 was wonderful to watch…it had all

of the tension and drama mixed with big names on the

leaderboard that makes golf the most underrated sport as I see it.

As much as I enjoy the NHL playoffs and somewhat the NBA’s, I’d

watch a major golf tournament over either any day.

Newcomer (Best Bet Corner) Producer Michael is now 2-for-2 in

picking winners while I also turned my bankroll positive by picking

Morikawa last weekend.

On to the final regular season tournament of 2020, The Wyndham

Championship. Last year it was won by a bomb, J.T. Poston, but I

don’t see that result happening with a number of big names in the

field. And considering two-time 2020 winner Webb Simpson loves

this course (he has a daughter named Wyndham), I suspect he’ll

be among just about everyone’s picks.

Once again the rules for our challenge:

Each week, Harry, Parlay Kid, newcomer Michael (Best Bet

Corner producer) and I will get a simulated $200 to bet…$100 on

golfers to win that week’s tournament and another $100 to be

spread amongst top-5, top-10, top-20, and other prop bets. We’ll


track the progress to see who does the best and whether we can

produce positive ROIs.

Here are this week’s plays for the Wyndham Championship:
