PGA Tour: Bubba birdie blitz

After the difficulty of the US Open, the players of the Tour will be delighted to get back to a more traditional PGA course, this time the TPC River Highlands in Connecticut for the Travelers Championship.

The field has an impressive look to it, with Dustin Johnson the only major name missing. However, many of these top names were in the heat of battle at Shinnecock Hills and may be worn out as a result.

We’re going to take a punt on a guy with an impressive record here and who will also be rested having missed the cut last week. Step forward Bubba Watson.

He has registered five top ten finishes in 11 starts here, including two wins and a second place. Some courses just fit Bubba’s eye, and this is one of them.

Our second pick is a player we have taken time to warm to due to his overly fastidious approach to golf. But his form has demanded that we do so. Bryson DeChambeau won his second PGA title earlier this month at the Memorial Tournament, and competed well at Shinnecock Hills (when we selected him) without being in the final groups. We’ll go in again.

Recommendations:

Watson to win, 1 pt, at 30/1, widely available

Dechambeau to win, 1 pt, at 33/1, Unibet
