Brooks Koepka — 37th

Between January and mid-March, Koepka missed four cuts and failed to collect a single top 40 finish, but he’s managed to flip that script recently, picking up a tie for ninth at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play and a tie for 11th at the Masters. That kind of momentum should allow him to shine in a low-wattage event like this one — we know how good he can be when he’s on, after all. He didn’t exactly thrive in his lone previous start at this event, but that was a full three years ago. Importantly, putting has been the one facet of his game that’s been solid all season.

Koepka checks many of the boxes for projected success this week, so he should be all systems go for the Valero Texas Open. A long-awaited return to the PGA Tour winner’s circle is certainly within reach.
