PGA Workday Charity Open Preview – 3 Players To Watch
Justin Rose – Muirfield Village is a course that is perfect for this Englishman. Only three golfers in the field have played more career rounds than Rose’s 46 at Muirfield Village. The course will require tour pros to implement proper strategy into their game in order to compete. Rose excels with the strategic aspects of the game and we expect him to do well. Recently, he has been struggling with the driver but we see signs that his best game is not far off. Rose has been putting magnificently and could be ready to finish Sunday as the initial Workday Charity Open Champion.
Viktor Hovland – Hovland has played each event since golf returned. His immaculate ball-striking has been masked by an extremely cold flat stick. The Rocket Mortgage Classic marked the second consecutive week that Hovland has led the field in Strokes Gained: Tee-to-Green losing a remarkable -6.8 SG: Putting in those event, and he still managed Top-12 finishes in each. He is too good of a player to be putting this badly. He is going to get his putting corrected. It is just a matter of if it gets corrected this week.
Chase Koepka – Just a feel good story! He is the brother or #5 player in the World (Brooks Koepka). Chase qualified for the Travelers Championship a few weeks back but withdrew. He removed himself from the tournament after he had been exposed to a caddie that tested positive for COVID-19. Although he had not experienced any symptoms of the virus, he took the right precautions to ensure the safety of others. The selfless act has led to a sponsor exemption opportunity at the Workday Charity Open. We have our fingers crossed that Chase can make the cut and play the weekend.
