Last week we had a winner with Ryan Moore.
Bud Cauley 20/1
It’s only Bud Cauley’s 36th PGA Tour start of his career this week but with six top 10s so far, this a player destined to win soon. Some of those good finishes included big events such as the Arnold Palmer, the Wyndham and Barclays in the playoffs. First start back after a month off. Nobody had more birdies than Bud here last year on his way to third and he’ll have happy memories of Cordevalle having secured his Tour Card here 12 months ago.
Jonas Blixt 25/1
Jonas hails from Sweden and is still cutting his teeth on Tour with just 25 starts under his belt. Third at the Shriners last week and lead after the second and third rounds. With 25 birdies at Summerlin, the same will be required of Blixt this week on greens here that will run at 11 on the stimp.
Jeff Overton 33/1
Tying for 13th last week and seventh at the Deutsche Bank represent an improvement in form for the 2010 Ryder Cupper. It’s Overton’s debut at the Frys and if he can tighten up his greens in regulation stats (from tied 53rd last week on shotlink) on the 8,300 square feet of greens here he could do well.
Billy Horschel 50/1
First start since the Wyndham for young Billy Horschel but I’ve been really impressed with him when he has played. Under par for his last six Tour starts (excluding the Reno Tahoe stableford event) and a best of third at the True South Classic in July. Tied for seventh here last year after giving the field a huge head start with an opening 72. One to watch.
Jimmy Walker 33/1
His tied tenth last week might look good on paper but Jimmy will be kicking himself after shooting a final round 73. Yet to break into the top three this season but with five top 10s including fourth place finishes at Wyndham and the Northern Trust, he’s not far off. Missed seven weeks due a knee operation; let’s hope Walker is fresh for a big week at the Frys.
