The Money List: Golf tips for the Zurich Classic of New Orleans
Jack Green gives his best golf tips for this week's pairs event in Louisiana on the PGA Tour.
Louis Oosthuizen & Charl Schwartzel
Oosthuizen and Schwartzel competed together in this event for the first time last year and went close, finishing third, two shots behind winners Billy Horschel and Scott Piercy.
The South African duo have a good chance of going the distance this time around, mostly because of Oosthuizen’s form.
The 36-year-old has two top fives in his last three starts, and he led at the halfway stage of the Masters a fortnight ago before fading to finish T29.
Schwartzel has struggled of late, but that can be overlooked given that he was also in poor form before this event last year.
Kevin Kisner & Scott Brown
Kisner is having a great season so far, having finished inside the top 30 in eight of his last nine starts, including a win at the WGC Dell Match Play at the end of March.
The American has a good chance to win again this week alongside Brown, who has finished T7 at the Texas Open and T10 in Puerto Rico in recent weeks.
This pair lost in a playoff to Jonas Blixt and Cameron Smith in this event two years ago, and they look a good bet to better that result this time around given how well Kisner has been playing.
Ian Poulter & Sam Horsfield
Poulter’s 2019 form so far is even better than Kisner’s, with four finishes of T6 or better and no missed cuts in 11 starts.
The Englishman has finished T17-T12-T10 in his last three starts, and his Ryder Cup prowess suggests he’ll thrive in this foursomes and fourballs format.
Alongside Poulter is 22-year-old Horsfield, whose form this year has been average but finished T5 at the British Masters back in October.
Blixt and Smith’s victory two years ago provided the blueprint for an experienced veteran alongside a talented younger player in this event, and Poulter and Horsfield can follow that formula with a win this week.
