PGA Tour players are heading up to Maryland this week for the Wells Fargo Championship at TPC Potomac. With just a couple weeks to prepare for the PGA Championship, this could be an important tune up event for many.
AT&T Byron Nelson Golf Picks
While picking the top guys can be tempting, let's take a look at a few golfers that have longer odds to consider wagering on. Here are three dark-horse picks for the 2022 AT&T Byron Nelson.
Odds to win the AT&T Byron Nelson are from FanDuel Sportsbook.
1. Jason Day (+5000)
Jason Day was on a stretch of three consecutive missed cuts but has bounced back lately, grabbing a T-10 and T-15 in his last two starts. The Australian has had an up-and-down season but does have three top-10 finishes, including two top-five finishes. While he did grab a second-place finish in this event a few years back, it was at a different course. Regardless, for the price, I like Day this week.
2. Aaron Wise (+5000)
Aaron Wise only placed T-55 in his lone appearance on this course last season, but he did win the AT&T Byron Nelson back in 2018. After missing the cut at the Valspar Championship, Wise has put up a T-21 and then a T-6 in his last start at the Mexico Open. His game is trending in the right direction and he ranks highly off the tee and in ball striking this season. He's No. 31 in Strokes Gained (SG): Off-The-Tee, No. 31 in SG: Approach The Green, No. 21 in SG: Tee-To-Green and No. 18 in Greens in Regulation (GIR).
3. Ryan Palmer (+12000)
Getting Ryan Palmer at this number seems like a steal considering he reportedly owns the course record here with a 61. I'm not sure about you, but I like betting on someone who owns the course record anywhere, especially at a course like TPC Craig Ranch where so few tour players have lengthy experience. You'd think Palmer was struggling big time coming into this event judging by his number, but nope, he placed T-18 in his last start. Do I care that he finished 47th here last year? No.... he owns the course record.
