The Brittish Open was nothing short of a disaster week for me (and many) but me specifically. Being dead early Friday on a major is never fun but we take it and move in.
This week is the Canadien Open at Glen Abbey Golf Club on Ontario, Canada.
Jhonnathan Vegas has won the tournament two years straight and should gain a ton of chalk because of that and he has really good odds this week despite having not really played well lately. Full 100% fade for me.
Based on the course most are going to target golfers who rank near the top in Driving Distance and who do well on Par 5’s (normally the long hitters).
core plays to focus on in each tier are in BOLD
- Dustin Johnson … I think he has a good round this week and is the bomber I want to target the most
- Brooks Koepka … I prefer DJ
- Tony Finau … One of my core plays this week, good on par 5’s.
- Joaquin Niemann
- Gary Woodland
It is looking like Finau is going to be the chalk in this range and is someone to really consider in cash, but in tournaments with the volatility of PGA he’s a decent tournament fade. I kinda like the idea of a stars and scrubs build this week so pairing DJ and Finau is still my preferred route.
- Jamie Lovemark
- Keith Mitchell … Consistently a bomber and will likely be low owned this week.
- Keegan Bradley
- Ollie Schneiderjans
- Beyong Hun-An
- Kevin Tway
VALUE / PUNT
- Nick Watney
- J.T. Poston
- Chez Reavie
- Brandon Harkins
- Tom Lovelady
- Benjamin Silverman
If you go with two of the top tier guys (specifically DJ) then you gotta get 3+ down in this range
