WGC-Bridgestone Side Action: Banking on a Justin Thomas Bounceback


Ian Rutherford-USA TODAY Sports. Pictured: Justin Thomas

  • On the Action Network Golf Podcast, analysts Peter Jennings, Jason Sobel and Drew Stoltz conduct a snake draft for this week's WGC-Bridgestone.
  • The lowest-scoring golfer wins, although they must select value plays with their final two picks.
  • Sobel believes Justin Thomas is one of the most undervalued players in this week's field.

In what’s become a weekly tradition reverberating around the golf world like a Sunday roar at Augusta, The Action Network Golf Podcast crew is back for another snake draft for the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

This Week’s Rules

  • The Rules: The participants — Peter Jennings, Jason Sobel and Drew “The Sleeze” Stoltz — can pick any golfer with their first four picks, but they have to target players with odds worse than 60-1 with their final two selections.
  • The Scoring: Lowest-scoring golfer wins.
  • The Stakes: A friendly $20 per man.

Season Standings

British Open results: Jennings and Sobel tied with their picks of Rory McIlroy and Justin Rose.
