After a fun U.S. Open with Dustin Johnson being crowned the winner, (We had him fifth on our power rankings) we now head to the Quicken Loans National. With this event taking place right after a major, there aren’t a ton of big names, which gives us a chance to make some serious money with the lowest odds coming in at +1300.
Let’s not waste much time here.

Here are some names to consider putting on your card for the 2016 Quicken Loans National.
Seung-Yul Noh - Let’s start with a big long shot, and that would be Seung-Yul Noh with odds of +5000. The last time we saw Noh, he was finishing seventh at the St. Jude Classic, and he has five top-25 finishes in 20 events played. Noh has had his moments this season and now returns to an event where he finished fourth back in 2012. When you add the fact Noh has two top-20 finishes in his last four events played, the 25-year-old has some value with these big odds.
Patrick Reed - A lot of big names struggled last week at the U.S. Open with the course being extremely tough, so don’t pay Patrick Reed’s 75th place finish much mind. The bottom line is that Reed has finished 28th or better in four of his last six events and has finished in the top-10 in 50 percent of his events overall. Reed is 14th in sand save percentage and 15 in eagles (holes per). There’s not a lot of golfers in better form than Reed and with a lot of the top players not participating, there’s value with +1700 odds.
Ryan Palmer - Ryan Palmer has three top-25 finishes in his last five events, which includes a third place finish at the Dean & DeLuca. Palmer is 12th in driving distance and 19th in scoring average. Palmer has also missed the cut just twice in 16 tournaments and now returns to a place where he’s racked up three top-25 finishes in his career. There’s a lot to like with Palmer and his odds of +3000 this week.
Bill Haas - Bill Haas has a chance to become the third player to win this event two times, as Tiger Woods and Justin Rose are the others. Haas won the AT&T National back in 2013. Haas really hasn't looked sharp since the RBC Heritage, but he still has seven top-25 finishes in 16 events played and has missed the cut just four times. Haas has shown he can get really hot once he finds his form, and that might take place on a course he’s already won. I’ll take a shot with Haas and odds of +4000.
Roberto Castro - Roberto Castro has finished 27th or better in three of his last four events, which includes a runner-up finish at the Wells Fargo. Castro now has five top-25 finishes in 18 events played and has missed the cut just four times. Also, Castro finished second in the 2013 AT&T National and has a couple of top-30 finishes over the years as well. Castro is 16th in driving accuracy percentage and 13th in greens in regulation percentage. There’s good value with Castro and odds of +4200.
