So I have to be honest here I really haven’t watched too much of the tournament and have been actively yelling at PGA Tour Shot Tracker after watching Ryan Moore totally fail me, but it’s Sunday morning and the best way to get over a failed pick on Thursday is to double-down and make that money back with some Sunday Morning Locks.
Dustin Johnson – 7 to 1 – I like DJ for the money. He is only 4 back and if he can put together a solid 65 or 66 and post a number I think it could hold up. Let’s be honest the guys at the top are far from stone cold locks to wrap this thing up down the stretch and DJ has been playing well early on in the season so I will take consistency from a guy who has been there before.
Jordan Speith – 9 to 1 – Putting all my cards on the table I have a mega golfer crush on Speith and he has shown a lot over the past year. Sure he let it get away from him at the Farmer’s but the kid was hurt and then came back with a solid performance at Pebble last week. A lot of the same pluses for DJ can be applied to Jordan so I like him as well.
I know taking Jimmy Walker is going to be a popular pick because the guy can’t seem to miss right now, but I personally stay away from back-to-back guys, which means he will post a 63 or 64 and win in a playoff or something because that’s how it usually works. Anyways I’m putting my cash on DJ and Jordan.
