I had my friend Evan Sheldon on the pod this week and we discussed who we like to win THE NORTHERN TRUST this weekend.
Sidenote: I don’t really’ get why the tournament name is in ALL CAPS, but someone on the PGA Tour made that decision, and it is what it is.
Back to the picks. We each picked one favourite, two mid-tier guys, one long shot, and one dark horse.
The only rule: can’t pick Tiger.
My pick — Justin Thomas (12/1 Odds)
Evan’s pick — Brooks Koepka (12/1 Odds)
RJ — Webb Simpson (33/1) and Adam Scott (45/1)
Evan — Webb Simpson (33/1) and Brandt Snedeker (50/1)
RJ — Ryan Moore (100/1)
Evan — Abraham Ancer (175/1)
RJ — Troy Merritt (350/1)
Evan — Nick Taylor (400/1)
And one final head-to-head matchup of two polarizing figures on Tour. He dislikes one, I dislike the other:
RJ — Justin Thomas vs
Evan — Patrick Reed
Tune in on Monday to see who came out on top!
