Webb Simpson (25-1) — Bookmakers have gone overboard to Simpson’s missed cut a week ago, dropping him right down to 30-1 in certain spots for Harbor Town, golfingfanatics.net which ought to be one of the more characteristic fits for him. His MC at Colonial was featured by losing 3.27 on approach in Round 1. As a main 10 ball-striker on visit, it’s exceptionally far-fetched that rehashes itself, so exploit the line.
Dr. Lou Riccio, Columbia University: Justin Thomas (14-1) — Thomas was in that spot toward the end of the week at Colonial yet went calm on Sunday. In the event that he gets in the blend again in Hilton Head, I like him to close this time around.
Stephen Hennessey, Golf Digest dep. overseeing editorial manager: Jon Rahm (16-1) — I do think this competition will in general for the most part give us more longshot victors (C.T. Skillet, Satoshi Kodaira and Wesley Bryan are your past three), however those were with a lot more vulnerable fields. I despite everything think the top portion of this board as an unequivocal preferred position over every other person. That drives me to the huge Spaniard. Rahm’s battles a week ago were for the most part because of his putter, losing multiple strokes to the field on the greens. As any master will let you know, putting is seven days to-week thing. He picked up strokes on his methodologies and off-the-tee, which is the thing that I care about. Among the top picks, this is the most alluring value point to me. Rahm is a forceful player, which may make you frightened to back him here, yet I really think it gives him a bit of leeway. He’ll be somewhat bolder than others on a portion of these tight doglegs. What’s more, just as he’s controlling his golf ball, that could mean a preferred position on the field.
