Valspar Championship Locks

Harris English to WIN (15-1, $100 to win $1500):  Oh Harris my Harris.  He seems to like this course and has been playing great golf recently.  He won he 2011 Southern Amateur on this track and finished T-7 last year.   If the season ended today, the only thing missing on his player of the year resume would be a win.  I also liked how he battled at Doral.  He shot a 77 in the wind on Friday but battled back with a 74 and a 72 for a T-16.  I think he gets it done this weekend.

Jordan Spieth to WIN (16-1, $100 to win $1,600):  I’m jumping back on the Speith train.  He actually has course history at Innisbrook with a T-7 (tied with Harris).  I don’t think Jordan handled the wind very well at Doral (captain obvious) with a 79 in the bad conditions, but like English, he battled back with 73 and closed with a 69 to finish T-34 last weekend.  I wish there was a line for an English-Spieth final group.

Cameron Tringale to WIN (55-1, $50 to win $2,750):  Cameron also fits the profile.  He was a solo 3rd here last year and shot a 66 on Sunday (did something click?)  He’s made six straight cuts and has been in the top 13 in three out of his last four.  He seems like a guy who could surprise and win here.

Bryce Molder to WIN (65-1 $25 to win $1,625):  I’m ‘Cised for Bryce this week!  Bryce is 6 for 6 in cuts this year and has finished in the top 10 in his last 2 tournaments.  He hasn’t played since the Northern Trust in early February, but that may be a good thing?  He’s been OK here in the past, T-20 in 2012 and aT-30 in 2013, but last year he played 4 of those rounds in the 60’s.

Billy Hurley III to WIN (250-1, $25 to win $6,250):  Sure, you probably don’t know who his is and as you’ve probably predicted this is his first start at Innisbrook, but this guys looked really good going solo 5th at the Honda and has made 6 of 8 cuts this year.  You want stats?  Ok.  He’s inside the top 25 in GIR, driving accuracy, scoring average, scrambling and sand saves.  Look, I’m not looking for much at 250-1, but he’s as good a lottery ticket as any.
