This isn’t the Rams offense of 20 years ago, but the Phoenix Open does call itself “The Greatest Show on Grass,” and two football players in John Elway and Aaron Rodgers will play in the pro-am. The real show, however, comes from the loaded field, topped by studs like Hideki Matsuyama, Jordan Spieth, Jon Rahm, Justin Thomas, and Rickie Fowler. Matsuyama is worth the price of admission by himself, as he’s crushed this course, winning in each of the past two years and coming in second and fourth in 2015 and 2014, respectively.

Here’s everything you need to know from a betting and DFS perspective for the 2018 Waste Management Phoenix Open, including six guys with enticing odds to win the tournament, a slew of underpriced players in DFS, and why Matsuyama is in a historical class of his own.

The Course

TPC Scottsdale, which checks in at 7,266 yards for a Par 71, is a pure ball-striker’s course. The last four holes create the potential for dramatic swings on the leaderboard, with the reachable par-5 on No. 15, the stadium par-3 at 16, a driveable par-4 with water in play on No. 17, and a difficult drive on the 18th that has water and tough bunkers in play.
