Finished Top 15 here the last two years and has Top 4 finishes in the most recent runnings of the Mayakoba and Fort Worth Invitational. Looks the one.

Mid-Tier Bet

Shane Lowry

The 2019 Open Championship winner has not won a lot lately but profiles well for here, He has played here three times with all Top 30 finishes including a T-6 two years back. Ranks Top 10 in Scrambling, Bogey Avoidance, Ball Striking and Strokes Gained: Approach. Will have a big week.

Value Bet

Corey Conners

Canadian who is a silly price here. Conners ranks 2nd in Ball Striking and 4th in GIR so has the game to compete here. Top 25 finishes in the last two RSMs, the 2020 Mayakoba, the 2021 Fort Worth Invitational and the 2022 Sony. Love him rolling at north of $51.

Longshot Bet

Chilean enjoying a breakout season, Pereira can feature at huge odds this week. A tremendous ball striker, Pereira ranks 13th in GIR and 14th in Strokes Gained: Approach. Finished 7th at Colonial earlier in the year.
