Expert Picks: Quicken Loans
The ninth edition of the Quicken Loans National will be played at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Gainesville, Virginia. It is the first time the course has hosted a PGA TOUR event, although it has hosted Presidents Cup in 1994, 1996, 2000, and 2005. The event is hosted by tiger Woods and benefits the great work that the Tiger Woods Foundation does.
Tony Finau is having a great rookie season on the PGA TOUR. Finau has 4 top-10 finishes include a T8th finish at the US Open back in June. Although early into his career, he is regarded as one of the longer hits on tour, and currently ranks 6th for driving distance. With a solid T-22nd finish last week, Finau will be paying 33/1 to capture his first PGA TOUR title.
Back in May Rickie Fowler was voted the most overrated player on the PGA TOUR, and has certainly responded to all those critics, having won The Players Championship in May, and the Scottish Open 3 weeks ago. He currently sits 24th in the FedEx Cup on the back of his win and with 2 additional top-10 finishes. Currently ranked No.8 in the world, Fowler is short value at 9/1 to capture his second title of the year.
Daniel Berger is currently leading the PGA TOUR rookie class of 2015.Berger currently sits 37th on the FedEx Cup on the back of 5 top-5 finishes, include a playoff loss at the Honda Classic. Of late however Berger has missed 3 cuts in a row, but we expect the World No.79 to bounce back this week with a strong performance. Daniel Berger enters this week paying generous odds of 66/1 in a relatively weak field event.
Bill Haas is already a winner on the PGA TOUR this year having won the Humana Challenge back in January. Since then he has amassed 8 top-25 finishes and sits 20th on the current FedEx Cup Standings. Haas is widely regarded as one of the masters of tee-to-green, hitting 68% of greens in regulation. Haas, like Berger has missed 3 straight cuts, but this has increased his value, and the World No.30 is paying great value at 33/1
