A very profitable week last week hitting our long shot in the first round Doc Redman ( 42-1 ) then doubling down after round one on DeChambeau at 4-1. After shooting 66 in the first round despite 3 bogies on the front 9 I knew the field was in trouble.
This week a couple of long shots in round one Jonathan Vegas at 100-1 and Cameron Camp at 75-1 .
Overall I went back and forth about the overall winner. Is this the week Victor Hovland finally makes some putts? Will the defending champ Patrick Cantlay finish were he left off? In the end, I went back to the well with Justin Rose. At 26-1 there is to much value to ignore. He historically plays well at Murfield with 7 top 10’s. He has had a Jekyll and Hyde year with 3 solid outings and 3 missed cuts. This is the week hopefully experience and talent meet up.
Check back on our twitter feed after round one with new picks as the weekend goes on.
