Zurich Classic: Initial Picks

This week we have the lone team event on the PGA Tour as 160 golfers make their way to New Orleans for the Zurich Classic. This event will feature two days of best ball (Thursday and Saturday) and two days of alternate shot (Friday and Sunday). For detailed explanations on the format, please join us in the Win Daily Sports Golf Discord or on tonight’s PGA Livestream on YouTube and Twitter. As for the course itself, I’m looking for accurate drivers and APP more than anything. The course isn’t particularly long so driving distance, while helpful, isn’t a huge advantage. Because it’s a team event, there is certainly a different approach this week, but more on that on the Livestream (and podcast).

Rahm/Palmer (11500) Good friends and defending Zurich Classic champions and both in very good form.  They are 2nd in total strokes gained in this field (Xander and Cantlay are 1st) and are coming in with great recent form.

Watson/Scheffler (10900) – If you’re looking for upside you may have found a home with this pairing.  Watson and Scheffler rate out at 3rd in strokes gained total and 3rd in T2G.  They are both in good form this year and I think they’ll play well together. 

Kirk/Todd (10100) – Kirk and Todd don’t have a lot of flash and may come up short on birdies relative to some of the heavier hitters, but I’ll go ahead and lean on their precision and accuracy and hope for some hot putting.  They grade out as 11th in total strokes gained (combined averages) relative to the field and have been making cuts and finishing strong all year.

Oosthuizen/Schwartzl (9400) – These two South Africans are also good friends and are very familiar with each other’s games.  The weak link here of course is Schwartzl, but he’s been in pretty good form lately, and coincidentally, he and Oosthuizen finished in a tie for 26th at the Masters.

Bradley/Steele (9300) – In 5 of the last 6 tournaments Keegan has been inside the Top 30 including a 10th at the API.  Steele was bad at Valero but hasn’t missed a cut this year (9 in a row) and took 3rd at the Honda Classic and 4th at Sony in January.  They grade out at 18th in total strokes gained and 7th T2G meaning they have plenty of upside if they find a hot putter.

Pieters/Lewis (9200) – In his last four tournaments Pieters has finished inside the Top 15 (two on the PGA tour and two on the European tour).  Lewis has made 4 cuts in a row and coming off a Top 25 at RBC.  Both of these guys can get hot at any moment and should be under the radar from an ownership standpoint.

Ghim/Suh (8000) – Not a big fan of the 8k range overall, but these two present some value due to their ball striking.  Suh hasn’t been great so far on the PGA Tour but he is making cuts.  With that said, he limped into a 61st place finish at the KFT event last week which does concern me.  Ghim’s ball striking has been elite but his short game has been bad so the hope is that the ball striking for both of these guys remains strong.

NeSmith/Seiffert (7500) – Maybe a bit of a misprice here as they grade out at 17th in total strokes gained and 4th in this field on APP (again, combined averages).  As the numbers indicate these two have been great in the ball striking department.

Straka/Teater (7200) – Another lower end option that will be off most radars.  Teater has played a total of 6 tournaments this year on the PGA and KFT tour (4/2) and made the cut in each tournament.  Add to that Straka’s ability to catch fire and you’ve got some upside here. 

Piercy/Bhatia (6900) – Throwing darts a bit but Piercy has been making cuts and Bhatia has shown that he can catch fire for a round here and there. This is a sneaky upside play but not recommended for cash.

Sloan/Baddelley (6500)– Sloan MC at Valero but 3 Top 25’s immediately before that.  Baddeley, since February has made 2 PGA cuts in a row and two KFT cuts in a row, including 5th place last week at MGM Resorts Championship – the same tourney Suh was 61st in).
