Four rounds in the 60's in Phoenix, three under cumulative for the par-3's and a T14 finish. That after just being pipped by Harold Varner in Saudi says Bubba is in serious form heading back to a place where he was won three times. Must be on your bet slip this week.
Matt Fitzpatrick 40/1
T6 in Pebble, T10 in Phoenix last week with 42 birdies and an eagle combined; is Matt Fitzpatrick honing in on a West coast win? Managed the course well in a T5 last year, I think he has a great chance.
Adam Scott 50/1
Great start to the season with top-10's in Abu Dhabi and Dubai but struggled off the tee in Phoenix last week. Riviera however requires more manoeuvring than pummelling off the tee and Scott has that in his locker. Six top-10's from 13 starts here and the winner in 2020, a solid each way shot.
Cameron Smith 25/1
Not seen on Tour for exactly a month but always a danger. Winner already this year at the TOC and you'd have to think his putting gives him a massive advantage here. Despite that he's mixed good with bad at Riviera, the highlights a T6 in 2018 and 4th in 2021. If he hits the ground running Cam could feature.
Sam Burns 35/1
Missed his last two cuts so out in the odds but still an incredible start to the season and my pick for big things this year. Solo third in 2021 on his third try. Sleeper.
Over Fifties Shot
Talor Gooch 55/1
Totally uncharacteristic 75 on Sunday sent Talor sliding down the leaderboard from third at the start of the final round. But this week is a new challenge, and with seven top-20's including a win at the RSM in the 2022 wraparound season, he'll fancy a good showing. Fourth appearance here and never outside the top-20 so far.
Alex Noren 90/1, James Hahn 250/1, Francesco Molinari 150/1
