Did you put money on Jordan Spieth this week? With his first-round play, you have no chance to win money, and that’s a shame that he shot a 76 in the first round.
If you didn’t take our advice before the start of the tournament don’t fret, we have some second-round match-up picks that are guaranteed to make you some money.
Cameron Smith 1.80 vs. Nick Watney 2.00
Cameron Smith = E, T28
Nick Watney = -3, T2
Pick: Take Nick Watney here. He ranks 5th on strokes gained off the tee, and that so far has been the difference in his play. He was pretty solid with ten pars, and I like Watney keeping the excellent play going tomorrow.
Brandt Snedeker 1.70 vs. Jim Furyk 2.15
Brandt Snedeker = -1, T8
Jim Furyk = -1, T8
Pick: I still am not sold on Furyk being back from his injury, but he is playing decent golf so far in this first round. Snedeker was one of the players we picked for the DraftKings team. So far so good and we like Sneds in the second round against Furyk.
Ryan Moore 1.70 vs. Jason Dufner 2.15
Ryan Moore = +3, T87
Jason Dufner = +3, T87
Pick: I feel like when Ryan Moore is playing well, he’s playing well but when it’s bad. Dufner finds a way to make cuts and finish. I think Dufner comes out tomorrow and puts himself in a position to make the cut.
Justin Rose 1.70 vs. Rory McIlroy 2.15
Justin Rose = -1, T8
Rory McIlroy = +3, T87
Pick: Rory McIlroy just isn’t playing good golf at all. I want him to play well, but he can’t putt at all. In the first round alone, he is losing almost 1.5 strokes on the green. But, McIlroy can go off in any given round, but I still like Justin Rose tomorrow.
Sergio Garcia 1.61 vs. Adam Scott 2.30
Sergio Garcia = -1, T8
Adam Scott = +1, T8
Pick: Finally, Adam Scott is playing decent golf! Just in time for the Masters! All that is great and I have been on Scott the past couple of weeks, but I’ve also been on Masters Champ Sergio Garcia. He is striking the ball the best on tour and has continued it this week. Look for Sergio to surge up the leaderboard tomorrow.
