We’re headed back to the mainland and the California swing.  I enjoy the event despite the Pro-Am aspect of the week.  Players get 54 holes before a cut, and anything can happen this week, especially finishing on the Nicklaus Stadium Course.  We hit Si Woo Kim here last year and hope to go back to back as our 2022 is off to a disappointing start. So, let’s get into it!  I’m not a massive fan of the card this week as Rahm, Cantlay could easily bag a W here…

We sit with a loss of –$380 as we leave the Hawaii swing….

Outright Bets:   

Patrick Reed ($25 to win $625):  If it’s a BIG name, why not Captain America?

Talor Gooch ($25 to win $625):  Like Gooch and his course history here.

Rickie Fowler ($25 to win $1,000):  Pretty important year for Rick…He’s done well here.

Brian Harman ($25 to win $1,750): I love his chances on these shorter courses…

Michael Thompson ($25 to win $1,875):  Great finish to the SONY; it’ll carry over here!

Top 10:    

Abraham Ancer ($25 to win $75): I just can’t see him winning, but Top 10, yep!

Brian Harman ($25 to win $175): I love this DAWG this week.

Adam Hadwin ($25 to win $187):  CH is as good as anyone here!

Gary Woodland ($25 to win $187):  If his putter shows up, he can contend to win.

Michael Thompson ($25 to win $187):  Why not double-dip?

Tournament H2H:  

IM -1.5 v Conners ($33 to win $37):  Beware of the Missed Cut Golfer…

ANCER v Conners ($33 to win $34):  Picked on Abe last week in H2H; now we pick on Conners.

REED v Wolff ($35 to win $33):  This seems too easy here.

FOWLER v Bezuidenhout ($33 to win $39):  CH for Rick here!!!

HARMAN v List ($33 to win $33):  List so streaky with the putter….I’ll take BH here.

First Round Leader:   

No FRL plays….My books aren’t offering with the three courses in play!
