What a fun week at the Wyndham and congrats to the surprise winner, Jim Herman. Some of the guys had some Billy Ho sweats, others had some strong finishes, while Bubba cried in the corner thanks to Ryan Moore. This week we head into a stretch where the best of the best show up to win. The FedEx Playoffs start this week at TPC Boston for The Northern Trust. It is a 125 golfer field with T65 and ties making it to the weekend. Let’s see who the guys like with 2020 The Northern Trust PGA OAD Picks.
|Last WK $||$312,400||$312,400||$0||$697,600||$168,000|
|Last WK PK||Webb||Si Woo||Moore||Billy Ho||Henley|
|This WK PK||Woodland||Morikawa||Finau||DJ|
Jesse (@DFSGolfGods) – Dustin Johnson
Last week’s pick, Russell Henley, came through with a decent finish, but as you can see from the above table I’m still a lot way back in this contest and it’s about 1000x worse in the big OAD. With that said, this week I’m going to take the guy who I think has the best chance to win of the guys I have left. Dustin Johnson is the pick. Will 10 handicap DJ or the best golfer in the world show up. Tune in next week or just watch the golf tournament to find out. Best of luck!
Ruvy (@MichaelRuvolo) – Gary Woodland
Well oh so close again. 54 hole lead with Si Woo and he pulled another Si Woo. A bit unlucky this time but a 3rd place finish wasn’t terrible. This week is a big field and I’m going to take an under the radar play and go for a very unpopular win. I feel a long iron player will play well and Gary Woodland fits that bill. Gary has not been hitting his irons very well as of late, but I think that could turn this week. I hope he turns into the Gary of old with his old driver and irons and putts average. Give me Woodland and hope he goes unnoticed in such a good field.
Rob (@AllDayEvery365) – Tony Finau
Billy Ho almost got there last week, and a nice chunk of change gets deposited into the OAD fund. This week the Tour returns to the Northeast and I’m going with the Big Tabernacle in Tony. A fourth the last time the tour played in Boston and one of the hottest iron games around, Finau’s length should play well this week.
Bubba (@bdentrek) – Collin Morikawa
What a disappointing week at Wyndham. Ryan Moore absolutely trunk slammed. A bad Friday, finished with a bogey to go home. Now we move to the FedEx Cup Playoffs & The Northern Trust. I’ll be rolling with the recent major champion Collin Morikawa. Morikawa is one of if not the best ball strikers on tour. He can birdie in bunches and is great on Par 5’s when it comes to eagles. No one should be surprised if Morikawa is near the top of the leaderboard once again on Sunday.
