Favorites Discussion

Rickie Fowler is the headline attraction at this years Shriners and tops the betting at 10/1.  Brooks Koepka didn't fire last week at the Open but was T4 here last year and at 16/1 looking like the best bet in the win only market.

Doc's Top Five Players To Watch At The Shriners

Jason Bohn 28/1

My tip of the week is Jason Bohn who looks like a super each way punt at 28/1.  Led the greens in regulation split last week and was T3 in driving accuracy on his way to an overall T3 at the Frys.  Never missed a cut from six starts at The Shriners and has a best of T2 in 2014 (well the 2014 season!) Get on quick.

Scott Piercy 33/1

The Barbasol winner punches his card for the 2016 PGA Tour season this week and why wouldn't he want a piece of the Nevada action having had three top-10's here since 2011. Finished the 2015 season strong with a solo third at the BMW Championship and 25th at the Tour Championship and played very solid at the Dunhill in Scotland. Good each way chance.

Ryan Moore 25/1

Regular readers of my tips posts will know that any mention of Ryan Moore comes with a get-out clause because he's streakier than a rasher but I simply cant leave him out this week.  Ryan will tee it up this for the 10th time at The Shriners and was the champion here in 2012. T10 last week at the Open and all aspects of his game looked very impressive.  Could win if he's in the mood, could miss the cut (like last year) if he's not!

Kevin Na 22/1

Kind of gets up the noses of a lot of people but Kevin Na is a serious Tour pro.  Solo second on his season debut last week thanks to some laser guided irons but what was he thinking taking driver off the fairway in the playoff?   Na actually walked off the course here during the first round last year citing illness and missed the cut the year before that, but also has good memories from winning here in 2011.  Well worth a look on current form and has the putting stroke to win.

Patrick Rodgers 40/1

Toss up between Jimmy Walker (25/1) and Patrick Rodgers for the final pick but at longer odds we will go for the kid.  Rodgers notched up an impressive T6 at The Frys last week thanks in large part to a cumulative 14 under on just the par-5's.  Eighth in the driving accuracy and greens in regulation at Silverado and if he can continue that form should feature on the leaderboard again this week.
