1. Cameron Young (+3200)
Looking at dark horses outside 30/1 and we start with Cameron Young. He's from Scarborough, New York, and the 2022 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year ranks third on tour in driving distance (318 yards) and has three top-10 finishes in his past four starts in majors. Young's strokes gained Tee-to-Green, Off-the-Tee, and strong iron play from distance make him a threat. A good week on approach play with better putting and around the green game sets him up for a solid week to challenge.
2. Sungjae Im (+3600)
Sungjae Im ranks highly in the championship field rankings in each of the four major SG categories (OTT, APP, ARG, P). His stats profile is strong across the board, and Im has finished top-10 in three of his last four events plus a T-16 at The Masters to bring in top form and confidence. Im also ranks No. 2 in the field in Par 4 efficiency from 450-500 yards joining major players at the top in Thomas, Finau, DJ, and Rahm. Invest.
3. Wyndham Clark (+7500)
Wyndham Clark is also top-15 in par 4 efficiency from 450-500 yards, and his recent win at the Wells Fargo Championship plus three top-6 finishes since March make him a true and viable dark horse. Clark's Approach play is solid and he gained a staggering 8.9 strokes on approach and 7.5 putting at the Wells Fargo event. Clarks is solid across the board with improved stats and No. 2 Around the Green on bentgrass surfaces. A different challenge, but Clark is top-10 in driving distance (312 yards) on Tour and that also gives him an edge at Oak Hill.
