Golf Matchup Picks

Tony Finau -165 vs. Jordan Spieth

I said last week that I didn’t go against Spieth in the first few tournaments after the return and that I wasn’t making that mistake again. Spieth struggled again last week and we got a win going against him. I am going right back to the well again and going against Spieth and taking Finau in this matchup.

Xander Schauffele -125 vs. Tiger Woods

I know that Tiger has won this event five times, but that was a long time ago. I was looking for matchups to play going against Tiger. He hasn’t played since mid-February and no, the made-for-TV event doesn’t count. I just can’t see Tiger being anywhere close to top form after such a long layoff. I know that Xander will play well, as he always shines against tough fields. He tied for 14th last week at the Workday and last year he led the field in total driving. I will take Schauffele in this matchup.

Webb Simpson -125 vs. Tiger Woods

I know that it is a little risky going against a player twice in the matchups, but in this case I get one of the top players in Simpson at a short price. Webb has two wins, three seconds and a third place finish in the last year. He is fourth on the PGA Tour in all-around ranking. I will take Simpson in this matchup.

Hideki Matsuyama -105 vs. Brooks Koepka

Something is wrong with Koepka right now and until he figures it out I think he is a go-against. In this matchup we get Matsuyama who led the field last week in total driving and in greens hit. He didn’t putt well and finished 22nd. He won this event in 2014 and he has three top 15 finishes since then. I will take Matsuyama in this matchup.

Kevin Streelman -115 vs. Marc Leishman

You have to like Streelman this week, as he always seems to play well at Muirfield. He tied for 7th last week and he finished fourth in this event a year ago. Leishman has yet to find his game since the return and I don’t see that changing this week. I will lay the small price and take Streelman in this matchup.
