The 2018 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, Outright Preview


Las Vegas is the next stop-off in the PGA Tour and the TPC at Summerlin Course plays host to this week’s event.

The TPC at Summerlin is a very receptive course with wide fairways and greens which are relatively easy to find, this means that a hot putter will be absolutely essential, although some control is needed off the tee as really wild tee shots will be punished.

Tony Finau will be looking to continue his recent good form and he is an 11/1 favourite alongside Rickie Fowler.  There is plenty of quality behind them with Spieth and Dechambeau 12/1 and you can get 14/1 and better the balance.

Chesson Hadley each way at 40/1

Hadley had a runner-up finish in his penultimate start and he also has good course form with a top 5 last year as well as in 2013.  With question marks over some of the top players he could be poised to capitalise.


Nick Watney each way at 125/1

Watney has not been at his best for a few years now but he has shown some decent form in recent events with a top 20 in his penultimate start.  He has missed his last 2 cuts here but has had some very solid course form before that and if his game is coming to hand then this could be the tournament which sees him challenge.


Lucas Glover each way at 70/1

Glover got to grips with this course the last time he played it in 2016 where he finished in the top 3 having missed his previous 3 cuts here.  His game is definitely on the up once again and he has had 3 consecutive top 20’s which includes a runner-up finish.


Cameron Champ each way at 40/1

Champ was super impressive in winning last week on a course which also required plenty of birdies, he came under pressure on the back 9 but responded in style and he showed me enough to suggest that going back to back is not out of the question.
