Pretty big names on the field list this week.

 

But I’m picking Vijay. Have you seen his workout? I’m hoping for a BK / VS battle in Round 4. That would be something.

 

What say you?

Nice win for Im.  I knew he would be winning this year.  I picked him to win... in an earlier tournament.  The kid has some talent, and he doesn't get phased by much.

It's like he completely missed the fact that Steele just did that exact same thing in front of him. Hit it to the front of the green - or even in the bunker - and get up and down and keep playing

Tommy...

I’m not sure who is gonna win but something tells me it may just be a first time winner.

Are ALL the young guns (Hovland, Wolff, Morikawa) in the field? No scar tissue on these guys. I’d be willing to wager some $$ on those three.

No Morikawa.  What are the odds that Hovland and Wolff are paired together??

Odds were always in their favor as this event is scheduled right before Bay Hill and The Players. I can’t think of many top tier guys who want to play three weeks in a row.

Add to that, the course is straight trash.

Now you’ve got an event where the “other guys” can make some money without facing too many top 50 guys.

I’ll take Jason Kokrak the win.

I’ll take Tommy Fleetwood this week. First time PGA Tour winner, but certainly a top caliber player.

VJ is playing custom Mizuno MP20 irons.  They have 2 numbers stamped on the sole... club number and bounce.  All of the irons are weakened; e.g., his 9i that was 42º is now his PW at 45º with 3º more bounce.

If Morikawa were in, I'd be pulling for him. As is, I think I'd like to see KM repeat or BK decimate the field.

I read somewhere last year that he has them bent super weak to get rid of the offset that he despises.

I think his MP18’s were the same way.

Ian from TXG did the exact same thing in Matt's live iron fitting. Had him try the T100S that he bent 3 degrees weak to remove all of the offset.

VJ previously used MP4's.  He wanted more bounce than the MP20's have because of his steep swing.

I started to pick Singh last night and let him slide and picked Furyk instead.  Wait and see game.

You win @Shankster Furyk is +8.  Shot a 7 on the Par 3 17th. 🤬
