TSZ TIPS

TONY FINAU

  • It has not been a great couple of weeks for Tony Finau having not progressed from his group at the World Matchplay last weekend and missing the cut at The Players but his form prior to that was exceptional and he figures to be in the reckoning this weekend.
  • Finau’s driving makes him a candidate at TPC San Antonio and he will want to get some form heading into the Masters so he has to come into the reckoning to win on Sunday especially following Dustin Johnson’s withdrawal earlier in the week and a relatively low-quality field.

TIP: Winner

CHARLEY HOFFMAN

  • With this being his last chance of qualifying for Augusta next week, Charley Hoffman will be excited to return to TPC San Antonio where he has an excellent record having won back in 2016, finished second last time and having finished in the top 13 in eight of his last ten appearances here.
  • Hoffman has been in solid form in the last few weeks and only a poor end last week at the Corales Puntacana Championship where he dropped five shots in the final two holes stopped him from registering a top ten finish, so this offers him the perfect chance to compete come Sunday afternoon at a venue he has done so well on.

TIP: Top ten finish

ABRAHAM ANCER

  • Mexican star Abraham Ancer continues to compete at a high level without having won a PGA Tour event yet but it is surely a matter of time and this kind of event where the field is not exactly full of top quality represents a great opportunity for him.
  • His play at the World Matchplay last weekend was strong enough despite note progressing to the knockout phase and he has constantly been picking up top 20 finishes this season so it would be no surprise if he went close in Texas this weekend with a top ten finish well within his range.

TIP: Top ten finish
