Birdie Or Better %
Par 5 Scoring
Viktor Hovland - $9,900 - High Exposure Play: The thing that I like about Hovland is that he should be a safe play. He ranks out top 3 in the 925 model this week. That is basically because he has done well at the comp courses, has been in good recent form and is a solid stat fit as well. I worry about the upside with Hovland but I could easily see him getting a top 10 finish this week.
Jhonattan Vegas - $6,300 - High Exposure Play : Vegas is mispriced in the since that it would not be shocking for him to finish top 10 this week. He is someone that had some upside last week. He had 2nd place finish at the Palmetto Championship as well. He is just a play at this priced point that stuck out to me. In a week where we want to focus on studs and duds, Vegas stands out to me.
Russell Henley - $7,100 - High Exposure: So I love the price point of Henley. We know exactly who he is as a player. He is a hit or miss player but he is typically a strong stat fit. He ranks 1st in ESCR, and top 15 in all the other key stats that I am focusing on this week. Just 4 events ago Henley had a top 10 finish. Last year at this tournament he had a top 5 finish. I think he is a solid risk reward play this week.
Collin Morikawa - $10,800 - High Exposure Play: Now people are going to love the fact that Morikawa is a member at this course which can be good, and it can be bad. I don't know what it is but a lot of the time players will struggle on their home courses. On the flip side of that when they are on they are typically getting top 5 finishes. Its almost like playing at a courses they should play well at adds more pressure but the nice thing is we don't have to worry about that because well its a no cut event he should be able to figure it out. Looking at the comp courses Morikawa has finished 12th, 63rd, and 1st. So I love that we have some upside from him. One thing that stood out to me when looking at his player profile is that he has dominated in easy to hit fairways, and courses that have thicker rough. He also does better on TPC style courses.
