TSZ TIPS

BRYSON DECHAMBEAU

  • Bryson DeChambeau has slowed down in recent events after a strong start following the resumption of play but the big-hitting behemoth will not let the missed cut at The Northern Trust phase him and his self-belief will see him bounce back strongly here.
  • He won the US Amateur at Olympia Fields back in 2015 so he has more familiarity with this course than many players this weekend and on a relatively long course for a par 70, DeChambeau can get back on the winning trail here and potentially go all the way.

TIP: Winner

DANIEL BERGER

  • While Collin Morikawa claimed all the plaudits for this win at the PGA, Daniel Berger is quietly impressing and going under the radar somewhat and his third-place finish last week was his fourth top three finish in his last six events and eight finishes in the top 13 in his last ten events now.
  • Berger has found an impressive level of consistency within his game and that has to put him in contention to be competing on Sunday evening yet again here so another top five finish has to be within his reach.

TIP: Top five finish

MATTHEW WOLFF

  • Matthew Wolff comes into this event sitting in 33rd place in the FedEx rankings and he is one player with good recent form who will fancy his chances of making the top 30 cut-off with a strong showing this weekend.
  • He finished fourth at the PGA just three weeks ago and had three good rounds at The Northern Trust last weekend but was let down by a poor third round where he shot a 77 but that will not dampen his confidence especially after a 67 in the final round, so expect him to challenge for a top ten finish this weekend.

TIP: Top ten finish
