Lets Recap last week briefly. Total miss. Not a good week. Dont really want to get into it that much just a tough week. I cashed with a 4/6 in the $200 SE so I had some pieces like Morikawa, Hatton, Rory just not all the right 6 and lower guys killed me.
This week I like how valuable all the guys down low seem so lets get started.
Ruby #1: Russel Henley ($6400)– This dude was on an absolute tear with his irons last week. I think he went unnoticed because he wasn’t that close to the lead pack but he hung around. He gained over 10 strokes on approach last week. He gained over 9 T2G. Those are crazy numbers. 8th place at Honda and 17th at Genesis. He is playing well right now. I think he continues the hot streak and makes the cut. If his putter gets hot you never know. He has been putting increasingly better as of late. Love him for his price this week both on DK and the betting market.
Ruby #2: Sebastian Munoz ($6100)– Munoz is a Dk scoring machine. He’s almost min priced this week. He gained slightly on approach at the API but the conditions were tough and I don’t think he liked them very much. Calm conditions this week should allow him to fire at pins. When he can do that like in Mexico he can score. He is more of a gut play than a stats play. His stats haven’t been fantastic but I do like him to bounce back after MC this week. If he makes the cut he brings a lot of value.
Ruby #3: Charley Hoffman ($6000)– Talk about closing your eyes and throwing a dart. Thats what Im doing here. Not great history at the players, not fantastic recent form, min priced. All signs point toward MC. This is a GPP play at its best. He gained over 4 strokes on approach at the API and over 8 strokes T2G. He has a couple 30th place finishes here in the past. I’m looking for a made cut with this pick. I think he can do it and seems like a good FRL bet as well.
