The PGA Tour heads to Florida this week for The Honda Classic where Tommy Fleetwood is listed as the favorite. Unlike last week, where it was a loaded field, this week is not as strong, although Brooks Koepka, Rickie Fowler and Justin Rose join Fleetwood in Florida. Oddsmakers are somewhat unsure who to favor, so they listed Fleetwood at 11-1, Koepka at 12-1 and Fowler at 13-1. Let’s look at The Honda Classic that begins on Thursday and golf picks.

Factors to Consider

This course is a par 70 that measures 7,125 yards and it is considered one of the toughest courses on the PGA Tour. It is all about water and wind, as water comes into play on 15 holes and the wind usually blows from 12 to 20 miles per hour.

Favorite

Tommy Fleetwood 11-1

Fleetwood played this event two years ago and finished in 4th place. He did not play the tournament last year. I am not high on taking favorites and even though I liked McIlroy last week he didn’t come through. I will get back to avoiding the favorite this week.

Value Plays

Rickie Fowler 13-1

I think you can make a case that Fowler should be favored, not Fleetwood. Fowler has played well in this event in the past and he has won more on the PGA Tour than Fleetwood. I think we get a little value with Fowler this week.

Gary Woodland 21-1

Woodland has his home in Florida and this course is not far away and he has done well, making the cut in all seven of his tries. He finished in a tie for 6th in 2011 and he finished second in 2017. I think he has some value at this number.

Byeong Hun An 31-1

An finished in 5th place in this event two years ago and he is capable of having a good finish again this week. He has struggled with his putting, but going to Florida and different greens could help him immensely. I will take a shot with him at this number.

Erik Van Rooyen 36-1

I liked what I saw out of Van Rooyen last week and I think he will be a player to watch going forward on the PGA Tour. His odds have already fallen from 50-1, but still have to take a shot with him at 36-1.

Emiliano Grillo 51-1

I was hoping for 70-1 or more on Grillo, but the oddsmakers are paying attention. Grillo putts well in Bermuda greens and he has played well at The Honda Classic in the past. He finished in a tie for 8th two years ago. I think he could be in the mix this week.

Keith Mitchell 61-1

The defending champ is listed at longshot odds and I am not really sure why. He loves these Bermuda greens and he proved last year he can beat the big boys, as he held off Koepka and Fowler. He is worth a flyer at these odds.
