The American Express Picks & Predictions

Patrick Cantlay has thrived in this event with three top-10 finishes in his last three appearances, including runner-up (-22) in 2021. The 30-year-old Long Beach native ranks top 3 on Tour in Total Driving, which is a combination of distance and accuracy and is a key performance metric this week.

In 9 rounds played at the Pete Dye Stadium Course, Cantlay ranks top-5 in this field in SG: Total, Tee-to-Green and Approach as well as No. 7 in Around-the-Green. The softer conditions and slower green speeds will make for lower scores, and Cantlay ranks top-10 in Birdies or Better Gained.

Bet: Patrick Cantlay To Win (+950)
