Picks to win
Colt Knost: Justin Thomas, 15-1
“He blew a huge lead here a few years ago. He loves this golf course. This is where he took down Jordan Spieth at the NCAAs.”
Drew Stoltz: Tony Finau, 18-1
“You got to go with guys that hit big balls. Hit big balls, got big balls, that’s what you need at Riv. Tony Finau, 18-1, checks the box. Was having a very solid week at Phoenix. Bogeyed 17 in the final round, set him back a little bit. Would have been in the top 10.”
Colt: Keegan Bradley, 65-1
“This golf course, I feel like you always see the same guys up there at the top of the leaderboard. There’s certain guys that just love this golf course. They thrive around this golf course and one of them is a darkhorse going at 65-1. He’s lost 30 pounds. Is a ball-striking machine. Just played really well at San Diego. I expect him to play really well in L.A.”
Drew: Hideki Matsuyama, 37-1
“I’m going to stick with the blueprint here. People that play well at Riv: long hitters, high-ball hitters. Hideki Matsuyama, 37-1, likes the big stage.”
