Group dynamics can play a significant role in how well a player performs and amiable Utah man Tony Finau will be thrilled to have been put in a threeball alongside the equally pleasant duo of Adam Scott and Max Homa. This trio can make headway up the leaderboard on a sunny afternoon at Oak Hill. With only gentle breezes forecast and temperatures set to reach 66F, Finau and company should get an opportunity to lay a strong foundation statarea predictions today and tomorrow for the week ahead. For my outright plays, I focused on the favorites and players who tend to play well in majors. Since it is a tough course, players who can grind out pars will likely have the best chance to win. Spieth is a bit of a risk, given his wrist injury, but getting him at +3500 is good value. We could wind up seeing Brooks Koepka battling Jon Rahm for the outright win, just like we saw during the first major at The Masters a month ago. The LIV golfer has won two of the previous five PGA Championship events, winning consecutively in 2018 and 2019. Back and knee injuries have hampered Koepka, but he’s still one of the best drivers of the golf ball in the game. If he can sink a few more putts on the Bentgrass surface, which wound up being a huge obstacle down the stretch at Augusta National, then Koepka will return huge value at 20/1 odds, which is essentially 3x value we’re landing betting on Rahm.
