DeChambeau has missed 11 straight cuts. So why is he a good betting option? Because his recent performances make it seem like things are finally coming together. He’s posted a T26 and T17 in his last two outings, and has been phenomenal tee-to-green. The fact that he’s listed as an underdog simply sweetens the pot.

Taylor is known for having a tremendously accurate tee and putting up premier proximity numbers. The well-known golfer is also great from short distances. He’s pretty good across the board but puts up better on par-3s and par-4s. This is likely due to the demanding distance par-5s offer. Might be a bit of a risky pick and considering the odds, there are better options on this list.
Vaughn Taylor +1 ½ (-115) -110 vs. Luke Donald-1 ½ (-120) –120
