The Second Choices

  • Webb Simpson                      +1400
  • Patrick Cantlay                     +1600
  • Gary Woodland                    +1800
  • Aaron Wise                            +2500
  • Cameron Champ                  +3300
Patrick Cantlay won the 2017 Shriner’s Hospitals for Children Open. He shot a terrific 67-71-70-67 on his way to a -9. So far, Cantlay’s also been great in the 2018-2019 PGA Tour Season, hitting a -5 at the WGC-HSBC Champions to finish 7th and finishing 17th with a -8 at the Safeway Open.

It’s tough to go against the 26-year-old. He’s striking the ball well while he heads to TPC Sumerlin this week, a course he’s ultra-familiar with. Cantlay offers decent odds at +1600.

The Underdogs

  • Kevin Na                                +4000
  • Chesson Hadley                     +4000
  • Beau Hossler                          +4500
  • Matt Kuchar                         +4500
  • Andrew Putnam                    +5000
At one time, the name Matt Kuchar was synonymous with Top 10 finishes. Kuchar played a few European tournaments in the early 2018 PGA Tour Season. He’s back in the U.S. Can he get it done?

No doubt, he can, but Chesson Hadley offers +4000 odds and he shot a -8, only a single stroke off Patrick Cantlay at the 2017 Shriner’s Hospitals for Children Open. Hadley, even though his odds are lower than Kuchar’s, offers more value because of how he played in last year’s tournament.
