Potential selections for one-and-done options
Kevin Na (+5000)
The winner at Colonial three years ago, Na owns five top-10s in 15 starts. He’s a consistent high-floor play, which means he’s more valuable in OADs for those who might only need to tread water at the top, though he (obviously) has some win equity, too.
Kevin Kisner (+8000)
Here’s your presumed OAD chalk, assuming teams have either used Jordan Spieth elsewhere or are saving him for a big one. Kisner won here in 2017 on the heels of top-10 results the previous two years, but he should come with a bit of a warning label, considering he hasn’t finished better than 29th here in his past four starts.
Gary Woodland (+4500)
Due to the course yardage, we’ll often look to use only the short, accurate types at Colonial, but don’t forget about the big hitters, either. Case in point: Jason Kokrak won last year and Tony Finau was runner-up three years ago.
Woodland falls into the same category, a guy who can employ something less than a driver on many of the par-4s, simply angling for a good position with his second shot. With results of ninth and 14th in the past two years, don’t be scared to use him.
Justin Rose (+4500)
Talk about a forgotten man, Rose hadn’t even played since the Masters and when he has played, it hasn’t been great, with MCs in each of his previous three stroke-play starts.
Last week, though, he posted a T13 finish at the PGA Championship and now returns to a place where he won four years ago and has never missed a cut in eight tries.
