Bubba Watson

In three events this year, Watson has one fourth place finish at the Waste Management Open to close February. More importantly, Watson has won this event three times in the last five years, which, in my mind, makes his the favorite, everyone else be damned.

Dustin Johnson

Johnson has finished inside the Top 16 in each of the last five years while finishing fourth or better four times. Johnson won in Saudia Arabia two weeks ago and finished T4 at the Sentry tournament of Champions in January.

Justin Thomas

Thomas finished T9 here last year and is undeniably one of the best golfers on the face of the planet. Thomas finished third at the Waste Management Open, T16 in Hawaii just prior to tha and T3 at the Sentry tournament of Champions in January.

Phil Mickelson

Forget the fact that Mickelson is 48-years-old. Right now, he’s on fire with a T2 at the Desert Classic and a first place finish at Pebble Beach last weekend. At 22-1 odds, he’s offering plenty of value.

Adam Hadwin

Hadwin is a great ‘sleeper’ pick MYBookie golf bettors. He’s sixth in strokes gained at this course since 2010 and recorded a trio of Top 25 finishes in his last four appearances here, including a T6 in 2018.
