Favourite Watch

Justin Rose 9/1

Rose. Rested.
Jason Day is back on Tour after a well deserved rest but in the win only market Justin Rose at 9/1 looks a better bet.  The defending champion is rested since a T10 at The Masters and is coming in off five straight top-20 finishes.  With the host courses ranking among the easiest on Tour over the past couple of years Rosey will be hoping to can more than his fair share of putts this week.

Doc’s Top 5 To Watch At The 2016 Zurich Classic Of New Orleans

Billy Horschel 22/1

Billy. Took the cash and moved to PXG.
Three top- 20 finishes now for Billy Horschel in his last four starts including a T4 at the Valero Texas Open last week.  The weakness in his game is par-3 performance; Billy hasn’t been under par for the short holes once in 10 starts this season.  If he plays those better, he can contend again on the course he won on in 2013.

Ricky Barnes 70/1

Ricky Barnes. Still looks like Lynette!

You have look to past a pretty record from four starts in New Orleans because Ricky Barnes is a man on a mission right now.  His T9 at Harbour Town was largely thanks to good putting, last week’s T4 in Texas was based on a good greens hit clip.  On an easier track this week, Barnes could score.

Chris Kirk 35/1

Kirk. Out. In the second to last group.
Top 25’s in three of his last four starts including T13 in Texas last week.  Cumulatively four under for just the par-3’s there which I always take as a good indicator of ball striking and birdie conversion.  First start at TPC Louisiana since 2013  when he was T21.

Cameron Tringale 45/1

Cam. What a lovely shirt.
No form to speak of on Tour but everybody loves a horse for the course and Cam is that.  Five top-30 finishes from six starts in Avondale including a solo second in 2015.

David Hearn 100/1

Hearn looks a little over priced at 100/1 this week given a decent T13 showing in Texas last week.  Six made cuts from six starts at the Zurich Classic stretching way back to 2005.  Had his best finish of T6 here last year.
