A Few of the Top Picks:

I think we must start at Jhonattan Vegas in this event to possibly win for the third straight year. In 2017, he shot -21 and was “on fire” to beat Charley Hoffman. The year before he shot -12 to bat out three contenders by a stroke.

The runner-up last season has to be on this list as Charley Hoffman played this very well. He has won the PGA Tour four times and has done well in every tournament this year.

My third choice is Tommy Fleetwood. He has been playing very well recently and is ready to break into the winners’ circle.

You can’t go too much wrong with Dustin Johnson or Brooks Koepka as they have the best odds to win.

All 156 players tee up on Thursday and Friday with a cut to the lowest 70 scores and ties after Friday’s round.
