TSZ TIPS

BROOKS KOEPKA

  • There were signs that former world number one Brooks Koepka was finding some form three weeks ago back at the RBC Heritage where he finished seventh with a score of -18 and after a torrid few months with injury concerns, he will be focused on regaining top form.
  • He has not played since then due to his caddie testing positive for coronavirus but his game was on a similar trajectory to Dustin Johnson’s and it was his close friend who went on to win the Travelers two weeks ago so it is not beyond the realms of possibility that Koepka can follow suit and get the win here.

TIP: Top five finish

HIDEKI MATSUYAMA

  • This venue will be used next week for the Memorial Tournament so while this Workday Charity Open is a new event on the PGA Tour, previous form at Muirfield Village can be assess and that means Hideki Matsuyama has to be considered this weekend.
  • Matsuyama was a winner back in 2014 while he has twice been a first-round leader in 2015 with a 64 and in 2018 with a 65 so he has to come into contention for that honour here and to win the tournament overall too.

TIP: First round leader

XANDER SCHAUFFELE

  • One player who is going under the radar but playing some outstanding golf right now is Xander Schauffele and the 26-year-old has to be liked at Muirfield where accuracy will be key and which should favour his game
  • Schauffele has had nine top 25 finishes in his 11 events this year and two of those have seen him finish second and once in third place, so he has come close to adding to his four PGA Tour victories and it would be no surprise to see him do that this weekend.

TIP: Top ten finish
