Which golfer among Fowler, Woodland, and Matsuyama can beat Dustin Johnson?
This is the inaugural Rocket Mortgage Classic. That means, no player has a real edge. Beating Dustin Johnson makes sense because even though DJ ranks sixth on the money list, he’s only won a single tournament this year. Not only that, but he finished twentieth at the RBC Canadian Open and thirty-fifth at the U.S. Open.
Rickie Fowler’s form has sort of gone south. He missed the cut at the Charles Schwab Challenge, finished fourteenth at the Memorial Tournament, and finished forty-third at the U.S. Open. Fowler is tough to back in this.
Like Fowler, U.S. Open winner Gary Woodland is tough to back as well. Woodland finished eighth at the PGA Championship, but before winning the U.S. Open, he finished fifty-second at the Memorial Tournament, which means Matsuyama is the player to back to beat DJ.
Hideki Matsuyama has hit the ball well in his last 3 tournaments played. He finished sixteenth at the PGA Championship, sixth at the Memorial Tournament, and twenty-first at the U.S. Open. If he can put together four consistent rounds of golf at under par, that could be all he needs to win on Sunday.
Which +2500 to +3500 golfer can take the 2019 Rocket Mortgage Classic?
Kevin Kisner offers some value at +3500. He brings hot sticks into this tournament. Kisner finished fifteenth at the Travelers Championship in his last tournament played. Although fifteenth doesn’t sound great, it was because Kisner shot 3-of-4 rounds under 70.
That includes shooting a 67 Round 4. If he carries the momentum from the Travelers Championship to the Rocket Mortgage Classic, Kevin Kisner could definitely have a say in the outcome.
Who is the best pick among the +4000 to +5000 choices that can win the tournament?
Like Kisner at +3500, Dufner offers some value at +4500. Although he doesn’t always show up with his best game, Dufner has produced a couple of strong finishes in his 5 tournaments played. He finished fourth at the Wells Fargo Championship in early May. He finished seventh at the Memorial Tournament in early June. If you’re looking for a longshot, Jason Dufner might be the longshot to back.
Is there a golfer at odds higher than +5000 that can win the 2019 Rocket Mortgage Classic?
Rory Sabbatini had a bad U.S. Open when finishing forty-third after shooting a +2 286, but before that he was in decent enough form to challenge for this. He finished twenty-seventh at the Memorial, sixth at the Charles Schwab Challenge, and fifth at the Byron Nelson. Sabbatini offers +5500 odds. He could return to form and be a force over the weekend at the Rocket Mortgage Classic.
