Branden Grace — 79th

At just 28 years old, Grace has become a real course horse at Harbour Town. Last week’s tie for 11th was his third consecutive top 15 at the course, coming on the heels of a victory last year and a tie for seventh in 2015. We can only hope that the return to friendly pastures will revitalize his game going forward — still without a top 10 finish in 2017, he sorely needed the confidence boost. Fortunately, the Valero Texas Open should be another good opportunity for him to flash some form. He tied for ninth in his tournament debut last year, and there’s no telling what he’ll be able to do now that he has full four rounds at TPC San Antonio under his belt.

We know that Grace is one of the biggest talents on the PGA Tour, so if his recent revival is real, then we need to adjust our expectations accordingly. That second stateside victory might not be far off.
