1* ($100) risked on the following golfers (Each Way) Top Ten if available.
Jon Rahm +1,800, +400, +188
Rahm is coming off a T33 at Harbour Town as his short game let him down as he was 103rd in SG: Around the Green. He did finish 10th in SG: Off the Tee which is the most important stat category at TPC River Highlands. He is 6th on tour in that category over his last 36 rounds played. Additionally, he is 5th in bogey avoidance which is also a big factor with this being a par 70.
Dustin Johnson +2,500, +550, +250
Johnson is another player that struggled with his short game last week as he was 120th in SG: Around the Green. He finished 3rd in SG: Off the Tee and he is 10th in that category over the last 36 rounds. Despite the poor scrambling, he finished T17 at Harbour Town with all four rounds being under par. He has never missed a cut at the Travelers Championship.
Colin Morikawa +4,000, +700, +300
Morikawa is ranked 21st in SG: Off the Tee over his last 36 rounds despite a poor effort last week. He finished T67 overall but his first three rounds were under par as a Sunday 74 shot him down the leaderboard. This followed up a playoff loss at the Charles Schwab Challenge. He finished T36 here last year but played well for three rounds as a Saturday 75 did him in.
Sergio Garcia +4,000, +700, +300
Garcia finished T5 last week following three straight 65s to close the week. Putting let him down as he lost more than three strokes putting for a second straight week but finished 1st in SG: Tee To Green and 2nd in SG: Ball Striking. If he can continue to strike the ball like that, he will be in contention. His last two starts at the Travelers resulted in a T2 and a T25.
J.T. Poston +7,000, +1,200, +600
Poston is coming off a T9 at the RBC Heritage, his second top ten since the shutdown. He finished 2nd in Proximity to the Hole and hit 74 percent of Greens in Regulation. He loses strokes when putting on Poa but TPC River Highlands is Bent and he gains strokes on that surface. He is ranked 17th in SG: Total over his last 36 rounds and tied for 4th in two starts since the layoff.
