Jack Green is backing an in-form American to win in his golf tips for this week's PGA Tour event in Florida.
Back to win: Bryson DeChambeau
Rory McIlroy is a formidable favourite at Bay Hill this week, but his price looks too short at .
Instead, I’m opting for DeChambeau – the only player in the field whose form is comparable to McIlroy’s.
The American finished second at the WGC-Mexico Championship in his last start a fortnight ago, meaning he’s now finished inside the top eight in three of his last four starts.
DeChambeau tends to play well in bursts. He won four times in nine starts between 2018 and 2019, so it’s worth backing him when his form appears to be picking up.
The 26-year-old has had some success at Bay Hill in the past, having finished second at this event in 2018.
Each-way shout: Marc Leishman
Leishman won the Arnold Palmer Invitational in 2017, which was part of a four-year run of top-25 finishes at Bay Hill that also includes a T7 2018.
The Australian also finished third at this event in 2011 and looks poised to contend once again.
While Leishman has finished outside of the top 40 in his last two starts, he won the Farmers Insurance Open at the end of January and now has five career PGA Tour victories.
The 36-year-old had six top-fives last year and has a great chance this week at a venue he clearly enjoys playing at.
Outside shot: Kevin Na
Na earned his best result of 2020 so far in his last start, a T9 at the WGC-Mexico Championship a fortnight ago.
The world No. 30 has finished inside the top 20 in three of his last five starts and now heads to an event he has been successful at in the past.
Although Na has missed the cut in two of his last three starts at Bay Hill, he finished second here in 2010 and posted four top-15 finishes in five starts between then and 2015.
The 36-year-old is having a great season on the greens, ranking sixth in shots gained putting on the PGA Tour, and looks a great price this week given that he won twice last in the US last year.
