Now, let’s get to my top five golfers to bet on this weekend.

No. 5 Adam Scott

Currently 22nd in the official world golf rankings, the 40-year-old Australian has finished inside the Top 40 in all four events he’s played this season. The 2013 Masters champ comes into this event fresh off a T21 finish in last week’s Sentry Tournament of Champions event. Scott ranks 16th in driving distance (208.7), 53rd in birdie average (4.31) and just has the look of a golfer that is going to contend for the outright win in my opinion.

No. 4 Collin Morikawa

After missing the cut in his first two events this season, the 23-year-old Morikawa has finished inside the Top 50 in four straight tournaments. While I had the world No. 7 as my top pick to win last week’s Sentry Tournament of Champions event, the reigning PGA Championship winner finished an encouraging seventh. Morikawa ranks 11th in driving accuracy (71.07%) and 55th in birdie average (4.30) and I believe he’s going to challenge for his first victory since winning his first major last August.

No. 3 Harris English

Just last week, I had the 31-year-old English as my No. 2 pick to win the Sentry Tournament of Champions and he backed that pick up by claiming the title In eight events this season, English has recorded five Top 10 finishes. 29th in the official world golf rankings, English ranks 45th in driving accuracy (66.76%), a stellar sixth in birdie average (4.82) and fifth in scoring average (69.341). I fully expect English will have a chance to go back-to-back this weekend!

No. 2 Sungjae Im

18th in the OWGR, the 22-year-old Im has finished inside the top-five in two of his last three tournaments. Im finished T5 in last week’s Sentry Tournament of Champions event after missing the cut in his previous tournament, the RSM Classic in November. Just prior to that, Im finished T2 at last year’s Masters. In nine events this season, Im has four Top 25 finishes and a pair of Top 10 finishes. Im ranks 22nd in driving accuracy (69.49%), 39th in birdie average (4.47) and 46th in scoring average (70.328) and I believe he’s going to have a real shot to win!

No. 1 Webb Simpson

Eighth in the OGWR, Simpson has finished inside the top 40 in all six tournaments he’s played in this season while finishing T17 or better in five of those events, including last weekend’s Sentry Tournament of Champions. The 35-year-old North Carolina native ranks a phenomenal third in driving accuracy (74.11%), 48th in birdie average (4.38) and 24th in scoring average (70.012). Maybe it’s me, but I think Simpson looks like a lock to challenge for the win this coming weekend.
