Another rough week except for Keegan Bradley. Nesmith and Wise were less than stellar. The Keegan call almost paid off huge. He gained putting in a week, which is insane to think, but he can do it from time to time.  Super excited about this week. 

Ruby #1 Brenden Grace ($7000)– Grace is a former winner at the RBS Heritage. He won 2 weeks ago at the Puerto Rico Open.  He has gained on approach each of the last three tournaments he has played. He hasn’t missed a cut since the Sony Open, nor has he ever missed the Players Championship cut.  All signs point to him playing the weekend. This week is critical as 2/3 of the field won’t make the cut. You get a 6/6 this week; you are in good shape. 

Ruby #2: Brendan Steele ($6700)– Steele is a guy who has played well at Pete Dye-designed courses in the past. He gained an approach at the API. He lost .6 strokes putting, so that was almost negligible. He hasn’t missed the cut since Mayakoba in December. He has missed his last two cuts at the Wyndham but does have an 11th place finish in four tries. HE has only played the Heritage two times and made the cut in half and finished 21st. Steele is a guy who can get a lot of birdies. He has a 6th place finish at the players in 2017. He has been playing very solid as of late; I like his chances of making many birdies and making it through to the weekend. 

Ruby #3 Charley Hoffman ($6800)– This is one I’m relying on my model more than course history or gut.  HE rates out super well in my model right now. He is 8th last 24 rounds, so he is playing consistently well. His worst ranking is the previous 100 rounds at 44th. In all other time frames, he is top 30. Coming off a 10th place finish at the API and three consecutive made cuts. HE is playing very well. He has found his irons gaining 5.5 strokes last week at the API and 4.8 at the Genesis. He has gained on approach in each of the previous three tournaments, making sense why he made the last three cuts. 

Good luck this week.
