What a wild and weird week at the Memorial. It appeared Jon Rahm was running away with the victory, and he gets popped for COVID after round 3. With the runaway winner out of the way, Patrick Cantlay took down Colin Morikawa in a playoff for another victory. Now the tour heads back to South Carolina for the first and likely only edition of the Palmetto Championship. This week’s tournament is taking the place of the RBC Canadian Open as travel to Canada is still an issue. The field is one of the weakest this season as most are getting ready for next week’s US Open. Let’s see who the guys like this week at the Palmetto Championship with the weekly PGA OAD Picks.
|Last Week Money||$0.00||$19,623.00||$19,623.00||$0.00||$182,125.00|
|Last Week Pick||Joaquin Niemann||Billy Horschel||Billy Horschel||Keegan Bradley||Kevin Streelman|
|This Week Pick||Luke List||Lucas Glover||Tommy Fleetwood||Alexander Noren|
Rob (@AllDayEvery365) – Tommy Fleetwood
Keegan’s no-show was apparent early and disaster of a week as he saved up for US Open qualifying and missed by a stroke there. The Palmetto seems like a mess with names dropping out left and right, so going with a guy I’d probably not use at all the rest of the year in Tommy Fleetwood. Top scrambler his last 24, It seems like this has a Pinehurst vibe, hoping he continues to improve his ball-striking.

This is one of the roughest fields in recent memory. I’m going to take a bit of a long shot and go with Alexander Noren. He hasn’t missed a cut since mid-March at the Players and is coming off a 13th place finish last week. Best of luck!

I am going down the board again this week. No one knows what to expect, but I’m going with 80-1 long shot Luke List—been a good ball striker lately and local guy to the course. Seems as good a reason as any.
Bubba (@bdentrek) – Lucas Glover
It was nice of Billy Ho to sneak into the weekend on the number but then forget how to golf over the weekend, doing me next to nothing in the standings. This week we head to Plametto and are grasping at straws with no idea what to expect. I will roll with Glover, who has made five of his last six cuts, including an 8th at the Charles Schwab and a 4th at Valero. His tee-to-green game has been on point, and he has been putting better of late. Really looking forward to some more Major golf next week.
