Doc's Best Each Way Bets
Louis Oosthuizen 28/1
Top 20 in seven of his last eight starts and on the podium in three of this years Majors, all that is missing is a win. Fresh fit and ready this week among all the wet and weary players coming over to Baltimore from New York. Putting off the charts and that could also be a bid advantage at this unknown venue to the field.
Webb Simpson 35/1
Trending up since The Open, performed nicely at “home” at The Wyndham
with a T7 but struggled on the greens in New York last week. Didn't make it this far last year but has three BMW top-10's from 9 starts.
Justin Thomas 20/1
The 2019 BMW winner comes in very much under the radar this week, despite a T4 finish in New York. An eagle and 25 birdies will have done wonders for his confidence after struggles this season and it'll be more of the same with bentgrass grass at Caves Valley.
Patrick Cantlay 25/1
Four rounds in the 60's and a T11 finish at the Northern Trust was a remarkable effort from Cantlay given his rear of the field stats for driving and greens in regulation, where he normally shines. It also says there's huge scope for easy improvement in Baltimore and he has the class for the big occasion. Second in 2019 and an ever present at the last four BMW's.
Hideki Matsuyama 40/1
Nobody is looking at Hideki as a threat this week but he'll be quietly confident despite a T43 at the Northern Trust. That because he found his putting touch again with 24 birdies. The Major winners always have a say in the Playoffs and with a Green Jacket in his locker and a recent T2 at the WGC St Jude don’t count Hideki out.
Collin Morikawa 20/1
Beware the injured golfer! Missed cut at the Northern Trust after suffering from a sore neck which may have turned out to be a blessing in disguise given the slog the event turned into. Lightly raced since his Open victory last month and should be fit and ready for this week.
Long Odds Glory Shot
Erik Van Rooyen is listed at 100/1 this week. T7 at the Northern Trust was excellent given big struggles in the final round and winner at the Barracuda Championship. Nothing to lose here.
