CareerBuilder OAD Advice:
Our first pair to consider this week are Rahm and Mickelson. Rahm is too good to use in an event like this though he’s likely to do well. Mickelson finished 2017 playing very well and has the short game and wedge play to light it up here.
The next pair are guys playing very well – Brian Harman – he had a disappointing final round at the Sony but he’s as hot as anyone right now and has played well here the past few years. Webb Simpson is playing well but we’re a little worried that his putting could hold him back in a birdie fest. If he does well, it will be because of great iron/wedge play that reduces the emphasis on putting.
Our final two players to consider are – Jason Dufner, who hasn’t contended recently but won here before and has been playing solidly; Patrick Reed – who can get red hot on a course like this and finished 2017 playing well.
We are going with Brian Harman who has been top 10 in his last 5 events. He’s also finished 11th and 3rd here the past two years, so he’s improving his performances over some not so great finishes in the past. He’s also a nice short game player and one who knows how to slow his rhythm down to match the pace of play – good in a Pro-Am format. Next man up: Mickelson and his wedge play.
Last Week’s Results:
Charles Howell III played okay at the Sony – made the cut but never got any real momentum throughout the tournament. The risk was he wasn’t hot coming in and our next man up (Harman) was.
