Here are a few golfers to consider throwing on this week's card.
Phil Mickelson - Phil Mickelson has been solid since missing the Cut in the US Open, which includes finishing 33rd or better in three straight events. Mickelson is due for a victory and came close after finishing runner-up at the Open Championship. Mickelson is seventh in birdie average and first in scoring average. There’s value with Mickelson and odds of +2800.
Brandt Snedeker - Brandt Snedeker has top-five finishes in two of his last three events, which includes a third place finish at the Wyndham Championship. Snedeker has finished 22nd or better in five of his last seven events and was runner-up at The Barclays back in 2012. Snedeker is also a resp ta elble 18th in birdie average and 18th in scoring average. Have to like Snedeker this week and odds of +4000.
Adam Scott - Adam Scott won the Barclays in 2013 and was runner-up in 2006. Scott is also in terrific form by finishing 18th or better in five of his last seven events. Scott is inching closer and closer to getting his third victory and it might as well come on a course where he’s had great success at in the past.
Jason Day - Jason Day has been arguably the best golfer all season and now heads to an event that he won last year and was runner-up in 2014. Day is 16th in driving distance, fifth in birdie average and third in scoring average. Day has been the best bet all season long as he’s produced three victories and nine top-10 finishes. Even with odds of +690, Day gives you the best chance to make nearly seven times your money.
Kevin Na - Kevin Na is a great value play this week with odds of +6600. Na has back-to-back top-10 finishes and has finished in the top 10 in 50 percent of his last six events overall. Na has made the cut in 20 of his 23 events this season and is 17th in scoring average. Not too many players have been as consistent this season as Na, and it’s only a matter of time before that hard work pays off with a victory.
