AT&T Byron Nelson is the final event on the PGA Tour preceding the second major tournament of the year, the PGA Championship. AT&T Byron Nelson's odds changed when Dustin Johnson, the world's number 1 player, retired with knee pain. This puts into question his availability to the PGA Championship on Kiawah Island. However, two players just behind him in the world rankings are still in the game.
AT&T Byron Nelson has been transferred again. He played at the Trinity Forest Golf Club in Dallas, Texas in 2019, but was canceled for 2020 due to COVID-23 pandemic. Will be recreated at TPC Craig Ranch in McKinney, a Dallas suburb. The TPC Craig ranch has been stretched 30 yards since its time on the Korn Ferry Tour when it was the 2008 and 2012 Korn Ferry Tour championships. It was par - 123, but now it's par - 72 in 7,438 yards with four par-5s. one more than before.
As always, you can watch the first two days of this event on The Golf Channel from 3:30 PM to 6:30 PM ET on Thursday and Friday. The Golf Channel also has action on Saturday and Sunday from 1:00 PM ET to 3:08 PM ET. Then he goes to CBS for the rest of the round.
AT&T Byron Nelson Odds - Favorites
Jon Rahm (+ 850)
Rahm is third in the world after missing the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow, where Rory McIlroy won for the first time in 21 months. Meanwhile, it was the first failed Rahm cut since the 2020 Charles Schwab Challenge. However, this was the first event on the PGA Tour after COVID-19, so she gets a pass. Rahm is fourth on the shots scored: Tee to Green and overall solid. However, it's still 123 rd at SG: Putting.
Bryson DeChambeau (+ 850)
DeChambeau, the fourth-ranked player in the world, thought he had missed a cut in North Carolina, flew home to Dallas, and had to fly back because he actually made the cut. He bounced back to shoot 71-68 over the weekend to get back to the T-9 finish. DeChambeau is the leader of the PGA Tour in SG: Tee to Green and its incredible length off the tee helps. However, he fights between 63 - 125 yards.
Jordan Spieth (+1000)
Spieth, a Dallas resident, should be rested as he was off T-3 time in The Masters. He previously won the Valero Texas Open in San Antonio, his first win since the 2017 Open Championship in July. Spieth is now playing amazing golfer, although he has to be a bit tougher off tee when he's ranked 151 st at SG: Off The Tee.
AT&T Byron Nelson Odds - Contenders
Daniel Berger (+1 800)
Berger is seated from the T-13 at RBC Heritage and aside from the three missed cuts he has been insanely consistent from the 2020 reboot. Berger won the Charles Schwab Challenge and also won at Pebble Beach earlier this year. If Berger can clean up around greens (162 n / a (SG: Around The Green) would be awfully good.
Brooks Koepka (+1 800)
Koepka was disabled from a failed cut at the Masters, but it was clear he was in the way of his knee. We know what a healthy Koepka can do, because he won the Waste Management Phoenix Open competition at the end of January. However, Koepka missed three cuts in a row before. He plays this tournament so he can advance to the PGA Championship where he is a two-time winner. Koepka's health is more important than any key stats we can give you.
Marc Leishman (+ 2500)
Leishman quietly got back on track after missing the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players Championship. He was 1-1 in Match Play, then finished T-5 at the Masters and won the Zurich Classic of New Orleans with fellow Australian Cameron Smith as a partner. It can get windy in Texas this time of year, and Leishman is one of the best players in the wind industry on the PGA Tour. Leishman finished second in this ranking, even behind Aaron Wise in 2018 in Trinity Forest.
Other rivals: Hideki Matsuyama (+ ), Matthew Fitzpatrick (+ 2000), Will Zalatoris (+ 2200)
AT&T Byron Nelson - Underdogs
Ryan Palmer (+ 3300)
Palmer is another native Texan who usually does well at parties in his home state. He is also looking for a rebound as Paler finished T - 63 at the Vaspar Championship which came after T - 34 in The Masters. Like Berger, he fights against the green. But Palmer can be dangerous if he has a good week with the stick.
Charl Schwartzel (+ 6600)
Schwartzel is in the middle of a rebirth that he would like to continue. He finished T - 69 at the Valero Texas Open, then T - 26 at The Masters, T - 21 at the Valspar Championship, and T - 19 at the Wells Fargo Championship. He also lost, along with his partner and fellow South African Louis Oosthuizen, to Leishman and Smith in New Orleans. Don't look at the stats: Schwartzel is in very good shape right now.
Sung Kang (+25,000)
This is an off-board player because Kang missed eight cuts out of 14 starts. Of the four cuts he made, Kang's best finish is the T-59 at the Valero Texas Open. Again, don't look at the stats. Kang won the 2019 AT&T National and equaled the tournament record to level - 30 with Wise. It also found out that Kang trains a lot at TPC Craig Ranch, so he knows the course pretty well. This is something to consider.
