Zach Johnson heads the market at 14/1 but with a very modest record in this event there is no way I'd be investing in him even though he has all the tools on paper. Recent first time winner Justin Thomas rates a better chance around 18/1 although I'm unsure if the courses would suit his game more than others. Kuchar turns up after a miserable performance last week and he can win all he likes now as I won't be investing in him for a long time. Very difficult to land and I'm a shade disappointed I backed him last week instead of McDowell who had been bubbling nicely recently.
Our top bet picks itself in the bridesmaid himself Kevin Kisner. You all know I'm a fan of this lads golf. Plenty has been written about the recent rookie winners on tour and they may land another win or two in their career, but the class acts stand out that bit more, none more so whenever Kisner slotted in behind Knox in Sheshan. The second placed finishes are racking up but what is interesting is that he hasn't exactly buckled in the situations. Possibly a bit twitchy with his putter under severe pressure but the lad is determined and he'll win sooner or later. He finished 4th here last year and the addition of the tree lined layout should be to his advantage with his accurate long game. The price is undoubtedly thin but we'll have to bet anyhow.
