WM Phoenix Open Picks & Predictions

Scottsdale resident, World No. 3 and former Arizona State golfer Jon Rahm has finished T-16 or better in all seven starts in the Phoenix Open without a win. But at twice the odds this week, Xander Schauffele is on equal footing in performance at TPC Scottsdale. The 29-year-old Las Vegas resident and World No. 6 has finished T-17 or better in all five starts in Phoenix including T-2 in 2021 and T-3 in 2022 with good chances to emerge as champion in both years. He's also in solid form this year with a T-3 and T-13 his last two starts and fits well at TPC Scottsdale with his stronger Ball Striking and Approach play both ranking top-10 in this field over his last 36 rounds and top-5 in Strokes Gained: Tee-to-Green. Xander's elite stats at TPC Scottsdale over his 20 rounds include ranking top-5 in Strokes Gained: Total, Tee-to-Green, Short Game, No. 8 Ball Striking and No. 1 in Around the Green which includes Scrambling. Distance control in the thin desert air is of significance and Schaffele fits across the board as a major win contender in the Phoenix Open and also +310 to finish top-5 and +150 to finish top-10.
