Who is the best play Open between Rickie Fowler and Sungjae Im to win the 2020 The American Express?

Rickie Fowler didn’t play in the 2019 The American Express Open. But Fowler has a couple of Top 10 finishes in his 2 tournaments played. He finished ninth at the Hero World Challenge in early December. Fowler shot a 278, -10. He shot a 282, -10 to finish in fifth place at the Sentry Tournament of Champions.

But Fowler doesn’t have a bigger shot of winning than Sung-jae Im. The Korean golfer has already played in 5 tournaments this season. Although he hasn’t had great finishes, he’s got the edge over Fowler at La Quinta. Im shot a couple of awesome rounds at the 2019 The American Express Open. He shot a 65 in the second round and a 64 in the third round. Im’s familiarity with the La Quinta Stadium course makes him the play over Fowler.

Which golfer offering +2200 to +2800 odds has the best chance of lifting The American Express Open trophy?

Byeong-Hun An didn’t play at last year’s The American Express Open. No worries. He had a great October. An finished sixth at the CJ Cup @ Nine Bridges, eighth at the ZOZO Championship, and fourteenth at the WGC-HSBC Champions. He shot 69 or better in 9 of the 12 rounds he played in those 3 tournaments. Unless Byeong-Hun has cold sticks, he should have a say in the outcome on Sunday.

What golfers at +3000 odds or higher have the best shot of winning The American Express Open?

Two golfers could win at upset odds. Phil Mickelson finished second at the 2019 The American Express Open. Lefty hasn’t struck the ball well. That could change this week.

The other golfer to consider is Abraham Ancer at +4000. Ancer shot 3 rounds of 67 or better at least year’s tournament. If not for a 73 third round, he’d have finished in the Top 10, maybe, Top 5. Consider Ancer and Mickelson if you’re looking for an underdog.

What PGA Matchups should golf handicappers consider for this week’s tournament?

Consider the following 3 tournament matchups for The American Express Open.
  • Paul Casey                  -135
  • Tony Finau                  +115

Casey offers low odds. He hasn’t struck the ball well enough to justify the odds. Back Finau because you get +115 as opposed to Casey’s -135.

  • Scottie Scheffler         -125
  • Frencesco Molinari     +105

Scheffler has 3 Top 10 finishes from 7 tournaments played this season. He finished third at the Bermuda Championship and fifth at the RSM Classic. Scheffler should take this matchup. Molinari hasn’t hit the ball great in his last couple of tournaments played.

  • Sungjae Im                  -115
  • Paul Casey                  -105

If Im’s a good enough play to beat Fowler, he’s a good enough play to beat Casey. Im all the way.
