Five Alive!

Dustin Johnson

The World No. 1 won the WGC-Mexico Championship at the end of February and finished a solid fifth at The Players Championship last weekend. Johnson ranks 24th in birdies per round (4.38) and 22nd in driving distance and has four Top 10 finishes in his last six events. Johnson is the favorite for a reason!

Gary Woodland

The World No. 4 has recorded an impressive half-dozen Top 10 finishes in his last 11 events while finishing inside the top 36 in each of his last five tournaments. Woodland, who hails from Orlando, won this event in 2011 and recorded a Top 10 finish in 2014 and that means he’s offering some great value entering this year’s event, even if the odds don’t necessarily reflect it.

John Rahm

Rahm finished 12t in last week’s Players Championship, but he’s also finished 12th or better in seven of his last eight events while recording six double-digit strokes under par in his last eight events. Could last week’s late collapse lead Rahm to greater heights this coming weekend? It’s quite possible, but there’s no doubt that Rahm is clearly talented enough to beat anyone on the planet every time he takes to a golf course.

Paul Casey

Casey might have failed to make the cut at last weekend’s Player’s Championship, but the sweet-swinging Englishman has finished T25 or better in each of his three previous events while recording a T3 at the WGC-Mexico Championships and second place finish at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am in early February. In his last eight events, Casey has finished T25 or better an impressive six times. I’ loving the underrated Casey as a value-packed 20-1 pick and you should too.

Brandt Snedeker

Snedeker looks like a great longshot pick at +5000 seeing as how he’s is coming off a fifth place finish at The Players Championship and has made the cut in eight of his nine appearances at the Valspar Championship, including a pair of Top 10 finishes.
