Sanderson Farms Championship Tips & Predictions
Dave Tindall: "Beau Hossler is still looking for that elusive first PGA Tour win but a look at the history of this event should give him hope that this is the week.
"Seven of the last 11 champions here were winning for the first time and Hossler certainly has the pedigree to join that list. He has made the cut in seven of his nine major starts so clearly he has an extra touch of class.
"Originally from California, he played his college golf at the University of Texas and his closest brush with victory came at the 2018 Houston Open when he lost a play-off to an inspired Ian Poulter.
"We're in the Deep South again this week and Hossler has already shown his liking for the Country Club of Jackson by finishing 10th on debut in 2017 after sitting third with 18 holes to go. He's played it just once since, also making the cut in 2020."
Dave Tindall: "Davis Riley hasn't played competitively since mid-August but it's far from unusual to see a returning golfer come out fast on day one before some potential rust kicks in as the week goes on.
"Riley's outright results don't look great since he won the Zurich Classic of New Orleans pairs event alongside Nick Hardy, an event in which they held the first-round lead.
"But go through his round scores since then and there are plenty of low ones. Take the Travelers Championship for example where he shot 63-74-64 over his final three rounds.
"He followed that by closing with a 65 at the Rocket Mortgage Classic and then came over to the UK to open with a 63 and lie second after day one of the Scottish Open.
"Then we have this event - one very close to his heart as a Mississippi local - where he fired an opening 66 last year to take a piece of the 18-hole lead.
"Riley, who tees off at 12.30pm local, can hopefully feel inspired again and hit the ground running."
Steve Rawlings: "The 2015 winner and 2020 runner-up, Peter Malnati, is a very obvious pick after his eye-catching 11th place finish at the Fortinet Championship.
"The 36-year-old Tennessee native has missed more cuts than he's made this season so that was an encouraging performance last time out and he clearly loves it here given he's made the weekend on seven of eight previous visits.
"Famed for being a quite brilliant putter and one of the game's more amiable characters, Malnati looks worth chancing at a triple-figure price in what is a relatively weak renewal."
Place order to lay 8u @ 10.09/1 & 12u @ 2.01/1
Andy Swales: "The Championship course combines the nine holes of Dogwood, with nine from Azalea. Water comes into play on seven holes at this traditional parkland layout.
"The slick Bermuda grass putting surfaces are certainly challenging, although Jackson remains a low-scoring venue where the average winning under-par total is 18.89 (269.11)...
"Callum Tarren, the Darlington-born 33-year-old, has completed two years on the PGA Tour and looks well set to retain his Tour card for 2024. Tied-seventh at the recent Fortinet Championship and posted a top-15 finish in this event last year."
ADL Championship Tips & Predictions
Steve Rawlings: "Ryder Cuppers Tommy Fleetwood and Matthew Fitzpatrick dominate the market and if the 2018 edition of this event is any sort of gauge, we should probably expect them both to figure.
"Lucas Bjerregaard won the 2018 renewal, but Fleetwood finished tied for second alongside Tyrell Hatton and the English pair had both played in the European Ryder Cup team that had pulverised the Americans 17 ½ - 10 ½ the week before in Paris.
"It's easy to jump to the conclusion that the celebrations would hinder their performances so soon after their success, but the evidence suggests otherwise. Winning the Ryder Cup is clearly a huge shot in the arm...
"Although he didn't make the team this time around, Denmark's Thorbjorn Olesen, who won this event in 2015, may well be inspired by rekindled memories of his 5&4 thrashing of Jordan Spieth in Paris and he arrives in Scotland in fair form having finished 10th at the Open de France last time out, where he ranked sixth for Greens In Regulation.
"He hasn't played well in this event since he won it but up until the last 18 months or so he hadn't been played very well anywhere and he was also second here back in 2012."
Matt Cooper: "This tournament has provided young golfers who have recently joined the pro ranks a timely boost in the past and while Alex Fitzpatrick has more pro experience than this week's third pick (see below) he can also take advantage.
"He's had a fine year, both on the second tier (where he has claimed a win) and the first tier. He sits 76th on the Race to Dubai from just 10 starts, the highlights of which are T17th in the Open, second in the World Invitational and fifth in the European Masters.
"He finished T28th in this event last year after carding a first round 73 that left him way back T146th. He can take another step forward this week with added confidence and off the back of the thrill of being in Rome to watch his brother help win the Ryder Cup."
Andy Swales: "The three courses vary in character. The Old Course has large undulating greens, wide fairways and little rough, while Carnoustie is a much trickier affair with tighter fairways and more penal hazards;
"Carnoustie usually proves to be the most difficult of the three venues for pros and amateurs alike. Kingsbarns, meanwhile, has large greens and generous fairways and, over the years, has yielded a higher stroke average than the Old Course.
"All three venues, because of their links' nature, become much more difficult in windy conditions. With all three layouts set up to accommodate amateur golfers, the putting surfaces are usually not as fast or as tricky as in professionals-only events...
"Talor Gooch is a three-time winner on the Saudi-based LIV Tour this year and finished tied-34th at The Old Course in the 2022 Open Championship."
