Back to win: Bryson DeChambeau
DeChambeau’s beefed-up physique and incredible driving was the story of last week’s Charles Schwab Challenge, and perhaps even overshadowed the rest of the American’s game.
As well as averaging over 340 yards off the tee, DeChambeau ranked third in greens in regulation percentage, first in scrambling and eighth in approach play as he finished T3.
The 26-year-old looked like the best player on the course last week and would have been in the playoff had he not made a costly bogey on the 17th hole in his four-under-par final round.
With a good record at Harbour Town – he finished fourth at this event in 2016 and third in 2018 – he looks the best bet to win this week.
Each-way shout: Kevin Kisner
I tipped Kisner each-way at Colonial last week and he was steady, finishing T29 after going under par on all four days.
The American looks poised for a better result this week at Harbour Town, where he has finished 11th or better in three of his last five starts.
That run includes a runner-up finish in 2015, when he was beaten on the second hole of a playoff by Jim Furyk.
Kisner ranked ninth in GIR percentage at Colonial and his accurate iron game suits this venue nicely, so he’s a good bet to improve upon last week’s solid performance.
Outside shot: Jason Kokrak
Kokrak fired a six-under-par 64 on Sunday to finish T3 at Colonial last week.
The 35-year-old is yet to win on the PGA Tour, but has proven in the past he can follow up a great result with another good performance. Last year he finished T2 at the Valspar Championship and then T7 in his next start at the Texas Open.
That bodes well for his chances of contending at Harbour Town, where he has an impressive record.
Kokrak has finished inside the top 20 in four of his last six starts at this event, including a T6 in 2016.
