We have seen an incredible run of golf over the past month and even with rumblings of a competitor, there is no real reason to think it slows down on the course. The game is great right now with many players who can win at any given moment in any level of event. Matt Fitzpatrick showed that this weekend as he finally got the monkey off his back and outlasted Will Zalatoris and Scottie Scheffler to take down the U.S. Open at The Country Club. Fitzpatrick capped an impressive run of golf with his first win in the states and that is the type of victory that could propel him forward.

Fitzpatrick will take a deserved week off as the TOUR heads to Cromwell, CT for the Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands. This is the event that was the scene of the eight-hole playoff in which Harris English emerged victorious over Kramer Hickok.

This year's field will be much stronger as a pre-tournament player's meeting has many of the top names in town and set to tee it up. Scottie Scheffler, Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth headline the field, making for another exciting week of golf as things build into the final major of the year next month at St. Andrews.

Best Buys

Rory McIlroy

There is no question that this was not the weekend McIlroy envisioned as he just couldn't get things going enough to really contend for his next major championship. He still played great golf and posted a fifth top-8 finish in his past six tournaments. He is playing elite golf and is a player who can churn out wins in bunches when he gets going like he is now.

I was really happy to see some of the other top names in the field this week for the Travelers as I am hopeful to get a decent number on McIlroy when odds open on Monday. He has shown a comfort level on this course that has resulted in three top-20 finishes in his past three appearances and with the level of golf he is playing now, he should be the favorite in my eyes.

Marc Leishman

The way the tournament played out, it was hard to keep track of the players that put together good performances, but never really contended. Leishman was one of those as his T14 finish may go largely overlooked, but it was a week in which he really played some solid golf.

The Australian gained strokes on the field in all four rounds with his irons and ended the week in positive metrics in everything except off the tee. That is really back to his standard game where he can get a bit loose with his driver. He is heading into a tournament that he has loved over the years. He won it in 2012 and also has a pair of top 10s, including his third-place finish last year. I'll be looking for Leishman off the top when odds drop on Monday morning.

K.H. Lee

The TPC K.H. Lee moniker has blown up in the Twitter gambling and DFS space more than anyone could imagine.

There is a cult that believes in this young South Korean and I have full membership as I fell in love with him when he closed out the win for me at TPC Craig Ranch in 2021. Shortly after that win he came to TPC River Highlands and was in the hunt through three rounds before an 80 on Sunday left him T73 on the week. I am hopeful the oddsmakers will see that result and forget the three rounds in the sixties that he posted before that disastrous final round.

Lee gained strokes on the field in all metrics tee-to-green over the weekend at the U.S. Open and showed some trends with his ball striking. His game is still there from his win in the first couple weeks of May. I'll be looking for him as an early longshot buy if the odds are right to start the week.
