2018 AT&T Byron Nelson Classic PGA OAD Picks
Another exciting weekend of PGA Tour action is in the books with Webb Simpson taking down THE PLAYERS. This week the tour heads to Dallas for the AT&T Byron Nelson Classic. It may not be the most dominating field out there, but does set up for some fun golf. This week will be the debut of the Trinity Forest Club & it’s awesome links style course. It’ll make for some interesting golf and could make it wide open for a winner. Let’s see who the guys like this week in the 2018 AT&T Byron Nelson Classic PGA OAD Picks.
|Last Week’s Earnings||$0||$40,700||$40,700||$92,714|
|Last Week’s Player||Hideki Matsuyama||Jordan Spieth||Patrick Reed||Henrik Stenson|
|This Week’s Pick||Beau Hossler||Beau Hossler||Adam Scott||Adam Scott|
Kevin- Coming off my 3rd MC of the year I really wanted to take Spieth vs a lesser field. Only problem is I’d hate to use him and not get a W. So I dig into some players who I felt could play well, finish top 10 or higher, and potentially win. It didn’t take long(horn) but I landed on Beau Hossler. Familiarity at this track bodes well for young Beau. I like his chances to compete for his first PGA TOUR W.
Jesse- This is a very tough week since we don’t have any course history and don’t truly know how this course will play. I’m going with a ball striker who switched his putting up last week and finished 11th. Adam Scott is the pick.
Rob- Beau Hossler – This week is going to be all about the unknowns so I’m trying to go with all of the knowns, and that starts with some factors. That’s where Beau comes into play. He’s led/co-lead six times, the most on tour without a win, this year. He’s a member of this course. He’s number one in good drives his last 12 rounds and has continued to improve his approach game, actually gaining strokes during the Players. His around the green game is good enough to contend here, and with a weakened field, he’s due for a good result.
Bubba– This week I’ll be going with Adam Scott. Adam Scott needs a top 10 finish this week in order to get back into the upcoming US Open field. He has been putting much better of late with the “Kuchar Method”. In a field with so many “lesser” golfers, Scott stands out as one of the top options. It doesn’t hurt that he does well on links courses and could be towards the top of the leaderboard on Sunday.
