Zurich Classic Tips: Watney can win all-American three-ball battle on first day at TPC Louisiana

Watney enjoyed his time at Augusta and can go well at the Zurich Classic

"There's not much between the trio's recent form but Watney performed best at the Masters, finishing with a wet sail to claim 13th place."

Back Nick Watney @ 3.185/40 

Dan Geraghty makes a trio of three-ball selections from the opening day of the Zurich Classic and he's looking at Nick Watney to get him off to a winning start...

The three-ball that immediately stands out is the all-American trio of former winners - Bubba Watson, Jason Dufner and Nick Watney - and the price that stands out is that of outsider. There's not much between the trio's recent form but Watney performed best at the Masters, finishing with a wet sail to claim 13th place. Jason Dufner has been in the top 10 here each of the last three years and is the clear dangerman.

Stuart Appleby is another player with good course form, he finished sixth in 2010 and has an average score of 69.75 for eight rounds around TPC Louisiana. 'Apples' has posted his best two finishes of the season in his last two outings (46th and 35th); the Australian is priced up as the outsider of his three-ball with Rory Sabbatini and Johnson Wagner; he's worth a small investment.

Josh Teater's course form is slightly better than that of three-ball opponent Jimmy Walker. Teater is having a similar season to the three-ball favourite, sitting alongside the consistent Walker in the top 30 of the FedEx Cup standings. Both have enjoyed a good start to the season, but Teater looks to have been underrated by the bookmakers. James Driscoll makes up the three-ball.
