    So, who ya obtained?

    Andy Lack has some solutions. In step with his weekly customized,’s professional prognosticator has crunched the numbers, assessing each the course and participant stats to reach at his 4 high picks for the occasion: a winner, a high 10, a high 40 and a matchup.

    Lack does this for a dwelling. However as a result of we additionally prefer to see the place public sentiment is leaning, we’re additionally sharing information from Chirp, a free-to-play cell platform (and affiliate) that provides followers a variety of the way to have interaction within the motion.

    You possibly can see that data, together with Lack’s picks, under.

    Andy Lack’s Picks

    Outright Decide to Win: Tom Hoge (+3100)

    (Odds obtainable on Bet365)

    Coming off a disappointing missed lower on the Mayakoba Championship, Hoge is primed for a bounce again on a course that has been variety to him over time. With three top-25 finishes, two-top-10s and a fourth-place end right here final yr, the 33-year-old clearly feels at house right here. This could not come as a shock, because the TCU product is likely one of the most correct drivers on this discipline, and he stays the primary wedge participant on this discipline as properly. His breakthrough win final yr at Pebble Seaside got here at one other coastal, wedge-heavy golf course. I count on him to seek out comparable success this week in Georgia. 

    Prime 10: Davis Riley (+450)

    (Odds obtainable on DraftKings Sportsbook):

    Whereas Riley’s course historical past (76th-MC) at Sea Island actually leaves so much to be desired, it’s value mentioning that the Mississippi native completed twenty fifth and eleventh at this course on the 2016 and 2017 SEC Championship. Riley performed his collegiate golf at Alabama, and lots of of his greatest PGA Tour placing performances, together with his two profession Korn Ferry Tour wins, have come on Bermuda greens. Coming off a stable twenty seventh on the Houston Open the place he gained over two strokes off the tee and three.5 strokes on method, search for the 25-year-old to hold his momentum again to his favourite a part of the nation. 

    Prime 40: Justin Decrease

    Much like Hoge, Decrease is a participant I’m eager on this week as a consequence of his elite mid-to-short-iron play. After Hoge, Decrease ranks second on this discipline in long-term proximity from 125-175. The 33-year-old is coming off a missed lower final week in Houston, however now he returns to a course that fits him higher. Decrease has already racked up top-20s this fall swing on shorter, positional, wedge-heavy golf programs similar to Port Royal, TPC Summerlin, and Silverado, and I count on his robust type to proceed this week. 

    Matchup: Matt Kuchar (-120) over Taylor Moore:

    Whereas I’ve my issues about Kuchar’s potential to shut out a event at this stage of his profession, he stays a rock-solid choice to complete within the high 30 any given week. The nine-time PGA Tour winner has completed thirtieth or higher in all three of his begins this fall swing, and now he returns to a course the place he’s had six top-30 finishes in eight appearances. Taylor Moore, then again, is a extra risky choice. He struggled mightily in Houston final week regardless of catching the favorable facet of the draw, and he’s a well-below-average wedge participant. I count on the veteran to roll on this matchup.
