PGA Byron Nelson Picks & Tips

PGA Byron Nelson

The AT+T Byron Nelson is next up on the PGA Tour. It is hosted in Irving Texas and has been around since 1944. Four Seasons Resort and Club in Dallas will be where these professionals spend the weekend. The course is 7,166 yards and is a par 70. The prize fund for this event is $7.3M. Last year, Sergio Garcia won the event over Brooks Koepka in a playoff. Overall, Rory Sabbatini back in 2009 is the tournament record holder. He scored a 261. Let’s take a look at the PGA Byron Nelson Picks + Tips for the 2017 event:

Dustin Johnson +450

Still considered by most as the top golfer in the world. He has earned more than $6.2M this season. He is coming off a 2nd place finish at the Wells Fargo and 12th at the Players Championship. His 68 on the final day put him in the mix and earned him more than $200,000 last week. Johnson can kill the golf ball, and if he is healthy, he is a ton. Johnson is listed at +450 to win the AT+T Byron Nelson.

Jordan Spieth +1200

This has the makings of a good event for Spieth to come away with a title. The problem is – Spieth is not playing very good golf right now. The 23-year-old did not make the cut at the Players. He finished 11th at the Masters and 12th in Mexico. Until we see Spieth get right, he is tough to bet on. Spieth is listed at +1200.

Sergio Garcia +1200

The 37-year-old from Spain finished 30th at the Players last weekend, after bombing out on the final day. The biggest news from Sergio was his hole in one. He still earned over $60,000 last weekend. He is currently 10th in the world and has made $2.7M this season. Look for Garcia to be consistent all weekend, which should give him a chance. Keep in mind, he is the defending champion here.

Jason Day +1600

Not sure why we have such a love for this guy, other than the fact that he is really good at the game of golf. The 29-year-old from Australia finished 60th last weekend, after shooting an 80 on the final day. He was in contention with 70, 72 and 73 the first three days. He has fallen off a bit this season, ranking 97th through the first weekend in May. Day is listed at +1600.

Brooks Koepka +1600

The defending runner-up. Brooks Koepka has quietly been pretty solid most of the season. He finished 16th last weekend and has an 11th place and runner up in the last month. Koepka knows this course and seems to enjoy this course. Look for him to make a play late this weekend.

Louis Oosthuizen +3300

A sneaky pick. Down a few notches from some of the other favorites at the AT+T Byron Nelson. Oosthuizen was in the mix at the Players with his 69 and 66 to start the tournament. He finished second and made nearly $1M. The 34-year-old from South Africa is climbing the ladder and is now inside the Top 50. He can really hit it, so at +3300 – he is in great shape to compete as an underdog.

There is a look at the AT+T Byron Nelson. We look forward to a great event and are excited about seeing all the great golfers take the course. When we make our final bet for the AT+T Byron Nelson we are going to go with Jason Day. Day is starting to round into form and seems to be on a mission to grab another championship. Jason Day is +1600 and is our bet to win the event.
