Jon Rahm missed the cut by two shots in the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow last week, but the Spaniard is being well respected in the market for the AT&T Byron Nelson at TPC Craig Ranch.
Rahm, still adjusting to fatherhood and prone to childlike tantrums when struggling for two rounds in Charlotte, is an unappealing option at short odds in the Lone Star State this week.
Strong preference is for Bryson DeChambeau, who performed superbly over the weekend at Quail Hollow and is teeing up at a Craig Ranch track he knows well. DeChambeau closed with back-to-back 68s in Charlotte, surging up from the cut-line to ninth place, and he was thrilled with the state of his putting and chipping. If the Dallas-based Californian can slightly straighten out his driving, then the Bryon Nelson appears a wonderful opportunity for him to secure a morale-boosting pre-Major victory.
Having not competed since the Masters, DeChambeau slowly but surely got the rust out of his system at Quail Hollow, and he could be peaking for Craig Ranch if he and his coach Chris Como have got the driving under control over the last few days.
Jordan Spieth got COVID after finishing third in the Masters, explaining his absence since Augusta, so the Texan may need time to get back into form.
The main dangers to DeChambeau, then, may be another pair of locally-based players — Will Zalatoris and Scottie Scheffler. Masters runner-up Zalatoris knows Craig Ranch well, teeing up there from the age of 12, but slight preference is for Scheffler.
The powerhouse has been threatening a PGA Tour breakthrough ever since arriving on the circuit at the end of 2019. Scheffler has never missed a PGA Tour cut in Texas and he finished runner-up in the WGC-Match Play in Austin at the end of March.
Fourth place in the US PGA last year showed that Scheffler has quickly become an elite player capable of challenging for the highest honors — and this home-state opportunity seems ideal for the 24-year-old to get off the mark.
First Round Leader Pick
Bettors seeking a prop bet should consider Keith Mitchell for first-round leader. Mitchell has started swinging superbly over the last month or so, earning a place in the final two-ball alongside Rory McIlroy at Quail Hollow.
The hot streak started with 17th place in the Texas Open, then he was the standout performer in the Zurich Classic pairs event. A final-round 82 in the Valspar Championship suggested Mitchell’s bubble had burst, but he later discovered his putter had been knocked out of alignment.
He took 42 putts on that sorry Valspar Sunday, but got his flat-stick fixed and rolled his rock with authority at Quail Hollow, finishing tied for third place and two shots shy of an inspired McIlroy.
Mitchell finished third in the Byron Nelson in 2018 and is striking his ball well enough to be a leading contender at Craig Ranch. From an early Thursday tee-time, he will expect to get straight among the birdies.
