Thomas is a golfer who excels on courses like Oak Hill considering he ranks third when it comes to Strokes Gained: Approach the Green. He is able to get himself out of unfavorable situations, which is crucial considering the course in Rochester is centered around smaller greens and severe bunkers.
In the tournament directly following Thomas' win in 2017, he finished tied for sixth and proved that he can handle the pressure of being a defending champion. I'll back Thomas for a top-10 finish (+250) given he has already accomplished the feat three times this PGA Tour and it comes with plus odds.
