Like DJ, Day, Mcilroy and Fowler are expensive threats.
Of those only
Spieth, Rory, and Fowler
are ranked under 150th in Driving Accuracy. Open conditions still make luck a bigger factor in these opens that it should be. So, pick one Favorite under 10-1 for $50 so you can still cover some great value from the rest of the field. My fund manager from 2015 still recommends Spieth.
Matt Kuchar 40-1
Ranked highest overall. Not only is he top 5 in Recent and History and 28th in DA. He is top 50 or better in every stat other than Driving Distance. The big question is can he close? Kuchar has been pronounced Choker at the end of a lot of tourneys. But at 40-1 he's an affordable must cover.
Jordan Spieth 7-1
has has been missing fairways all year. He cant make up for that scrambling in this rough. However, he is currently 93rd in DA hitting a little over 60% of fairways. that along with his course management skills make him the top pick for me and the bookmakers
Henrik Stenson 40-1
is 9th in DA, has played well at opens and was 4th 2 weeks ago, He is a solid value at 40-1.
He is due to win and 8th in DA. Something about this guy just screams winner to me.
At 100-1 I'll spend $10 not $5 on him.
Like David Toms 5th here in 2007and currently 21st in DA have or at great odds 400-1. I'll throw 5 on him and Cabrerra - Not trending but still long and 1st here in 2007.
featured a few players in the field this week worth consideration. Her is a list of those who finished well there.
In The Fairway
With Penal Rough, Driving Accuracy is a must this week. Here at the players currently ranked highest in that stat playing this week
*1st Thomas Aiken
23rd Spencer Levin
Across the Pond
Euro players have been trending in the states are there are several worth some coin.
There are dozens. With odds as high as 2000-1 a $5 bet could get lucky and make your year.
I'll take a couple of those too.
