Golf Picks Puerto Rico 2014

Power Rankings Puerto Rico


Round 1

Still Early
I have been waiting for Brian Stuard to win. Very surprised he went off as low as 20-1 when he is normally at 40 or 60-1. He Leads at (-6). Holding the lead for 4 days would be quite a feat. Expect some lead changes. 


Round 2

Unusual Suspects
Unfamiliar names top the leaderboard.  Stuard has dropped well off the lead. This tourney has a history of 1st time winner.  That could well be the story again this year?


Round 3

Don't Mess Around with Slim
Chesson Hadley's stats do not stand out on PGA Tour. But, at 6'4 and just 160 lbs - with a 3 shot lead this morning - he towered above the field. Starting out at (-15) he played it cool - even when faced with a shot from the water that he Pared. He held serve at (-15) with a one shot lead. 
After that great up and down - he threw up a high finger snap. 

We'll see after the Final Round - if we still call him Slim
Or if he's Yelling "Oooh Snap?
