Burgoon certainly isn’t a household name, but he’s been on fire lately, finishing second at last week’s John Deere Classic, 30th at The Greenbrier, and sixth at the Quicken Loans National. He’s been nailing greens in regulation, and he’s been scrambling with the best of them in the times he’s missed. There’s not a lot of upside here considering the strength of the field, but if he had very low odds to make the cut, I’d be interested in that bet.
