$7,900 to $7,000

As is usually the case, there are a ton of golfers to choose from so we won’t go over everybody, but we will go over our fair share.

Right off the bat, I want to highlight Keegan Bradley ($7,400), Gary Woodland ($7,300), and Bernd Wiesberger ($7,300). All three have similar games. They can go low at any point, but how is Woodland only $100 dollars cheap than Bradley and the same price as Wiesberger?

I know these prices came out before Wiesberger won, but it was clear that Wiesberger was underpriced and Woodland was vastly overpriced.

What has Woodland done this year to warrant such a high price? There are a number of golfers below him that should be more expensive than him.

Again, Woodland is someone who should perform well here. He clearly has the length, the talent, and the game to perform well at a high level. But, he has yet to do that and do that on a consistent basis. He has just been so disappointing this year.

Personally, I’d much rather spend the extra $100 bucks on Bradley rather than taking Woodland and I’d much rather just take Wiesberger over Woodland.

Then you have J.B. Holmes ($7,500) who has the same sort of game, but has played way better than Woodland this season. Plus, Holmes finished T-14 at The Open in 2010. Again, I’d rather just spend an extra $200 bucks on Holmes than take Woodland.

Anyway, we’ll quit beating up on Woodland, but I just find that pricing extremely odd.

You might not know this, but Bradley has played The Open Championship pretty well. Bradley is three-for-three in made cuts at The Open including a T-19 last year and a T-15 in 2013. Somewhat quietly, but Bradley might make for a pretty good value play.

Francesco Molinari ($7,500) has been one of the best players of late and has played well at majors in the last couple of years. Molinari has made the cut in seven majors now and has made the cut in The Open in his last three appearances.

It is worth noting that he did miss the cut here at St. Andrews back in 2010. Molinari is the kind of golfer that will need a little bit of help from the wind. Molinari is a shorter hitter and plays well in the wind.

  • Another golfer who has played well, but without the pedigree that comes along is Kevin Kisner ($7,000). Kisner might be a really popular pick considering how he has played since April.

    I’m writing this before the John Deere Classic has taken place, but he has made the cut in his last eight tournaments, he has three P2’s and he finished T-12 at the U.S. Open.

    Kisner is extremely hot, but for me, he’s an easy pass. Kisner might end up being that cheap, popular pick that is a bust. George McNeill and Byeong-Hun An ($7,600) were that at the U.S. Open, Holmes was that way at The Masters. I just feel that Kisner might that guy at The Open.

    If he plays well, hey, all I can do is tip my cap. But I’ll pass on a golfer at a major where he has no real history and who’s probably going to be 25% owned. This is a different level and he did great at the U.S. Open, but for me, he has got to do it again before I can take him.

    Real quickly, if the wind is blowing that benefits golfers like: Matt Kuchar ($7,900), Jim Furyk ($7,700), Graeme McDowell ($7,600), Zach Johnson ($7,400), and Marc Leishman ($7,000).

    Stephen Gallacher ($7,200) has done well at Opens, you have young bucks Tommy Fleetwood ($7,300) and Danny Willett ($7,500) to consider as well.

    For my pick on here, I think I’ll take Victor Dubuisson ($7,500). For a few different reasons. One: Dubuisson is showing signs of life. He finished T-20 at the BMW International Open, and T-12 at the French Open.

    Two: Dubuisson isn’t on anybody else’s radar. Right now he would probably be owned by 1% of the teams. That could potentially change, and I’m hoping it doesn’t.

    Dubuisson is scheduled to play in the Scottish Open and I’m hoping he doesn’t win or make a lot of noise. If he can just play four rock solid rounds, that would be perfect. Just enough to stay sharp heading into next week.

    Three: I’ve been on the Dubuisson bandwagon since last year. I’m not jumping off the bandwagon now. Not when he is finally playing better and nobody else is on it.
