PrizePicks Total Strokes Props
Jon Rahm: Round 1 Score Under 67.5
Rahm is returning to Arizona this week where he will certainly have some good vibes being an Arizona State University alumni. The Spaniard has also played very well at TPC Scottsdale very well, finishing no worse than 16th in any of his six tries at the event. He has shot under 67 in three of his past four opening rounds at the course.
Justin Thomas: Round 1 Score Under 67.5
Justin Thomas loves TPC Scottsdale. He has two third place finishes in his past three tries at the event. More importantly, he has gotten off to incredible starts in his trips to Phoenix. In 2019 he opened with a scorching 64, and has six rounds of 66 or better at the course.
Brooks Koepka: Round 1 Score Under 67.5
There is always the temptation of backing Brooks Koepka to play well when he comes into an event under the radar, especially when it’s an event where he is the defending champion.
With that being said, this year feels a bit different. Last year, despite coming into the event in poor form, he had at least had a top five finish at the Masters three months prior. This time, however, he hasn’t had a top-five finish in almost eight months.
Seamus Power: Round 1 Score Over 69.0
Early in Saturday’s round at last week’s AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, Seamus Power looked in total control as he made birdie to take a commanding six-shot lead. From that point on, Power played the remainder of his holes at 3-over, and finished in an extremely disappointing tie for ninth place.
There is no doubt that his play on the weekend could take a mental toll on him to begin this week’s Waste Management Phoenix Open. I am anticipating a sluggish start from the Irishman.
