Arguably the best atmosphere during the PGA Tour happens this week as the pros head to Scottsdale, Ariz., to take on The Breakfast Club.
The field is headlined by 13 of the top 20 players in the world teeing it up at TPC Scottsdale for the Waste Management Phoenix Open.
For the first time in a few weeks, we have a normal week on tour. All four rounds will be played at the same course, and the cut will be after Friday’s rounds end (after 36 holes). This will be the case unless stated otherwise from here on out. The top-three things that I am looking at are great putters, great approaches and great drivers.
Top Canadian: Adam Hadwin +325
We take a look at our northern neighbors to see if we can keep this hot start on picking winning national plays. (Big shoutout to Christiaan Bezuidenhout!) There are only four Canadians in the field this week: Corey Connors, Adam Hadwin, Nick Taylor and Roger Sloan. I am going with Hadwin this weekend. He has made five-straight cuts at TPC Scottsdale and has been playing great golf with two top 25s in his last three events.
72-Hole Group Betting B: Brooks Koepka +400
Group B is loaded with fun and filled with superstars – Schauffele, Spieth, Scheffler, Burns and two-time winner and defending champion Brooks Koepka. Maybe Koepka is so low in thie group because we haven’t seen him much. Or maybe it’s because Spieth just snagged a solo second last week at Pebble Beach. But Brooks has yet to miss a cut in Scottsdale. I’ll ride the juice.
I’ll ride with Hot Hand Hideki. He has three wins in his last 17 starts. Has probably the best history in the field with two wins, four top fives, and six top 20s at TPC Scottsdale. I think he might putt his way to another victory.
(Whispers)... I also like Max Homa at +7900
