Northern Trust Open

Riviera Country Club – Pacific Palisades, CA

The TOUR stays in California for the Northern Trust Open at Riviera Country Club on Thursday. Last week’s AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am was extremely exciting and saw Vaughn Taylor come away with his first PGA TOUR victory in 11 years.

This week’s event will feature some serious firepower, as Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth and Bubba Watson will all be playing. As it seems to be the case with nearly every tournament, Phil Mickelson is a two-time winner at this event. He will, however, be absent from this year’s field.

James Hahn won’t be absent and he’ll actually be defending his victory from 2015 in this one. Bubba Watson was the winner in 2014 and John Merrick came away victorious in 2013. The best score ever shot at the Northern Trust Open was a 20-under by Lanny Wadkins in 1985. Let’s now take a look at who might be gunning to beat that come Sunday:

Dustin Johnson (+1600) - Dustin Johnson did not play very well at Pebble Beach last week, shooting just a two-under for the tournament. He is going to be hungry to win the Northern Trust Open this weekend. Johnson has been the runner-up at this event in back-to-back years and coming that close to victory has to be eating away at him. He lost last year in a playoff and shot a 13-under in his defeat in 2014, but this could be the year he breaks through. At +1600, he’s more than worth taking a shot on at a course he loves playing at.

Hideki Matsuyama (+1600) - Hideki Matsuyama did not play at Pebble Beach last week, but he won the Waste Management Phoenix Open the week before. Matsuyama shot a 14-under at that tournament and will be extremely confident coming into this one. He burst onto the scene with a strong 2015 season and he is now showing that he needs to be taken seriously moving forward. Having already notched one win in 2016, Matsuyama is going to stake his claim as one of golf’s best players. He is an excellent pick at this price, as this course should really fit his style of play perfectly.

James Hahn (+12500) - Course history is one of the most important things to factor in when trying to pick a winner and James Hahn is receiving some crazy odds for somebody that won this tournament in 2015. Not only did Hahn win last year, but he has also played pretty well this season. Hahn has a top-10 finish and two top-25 finishes to his name this year and he has made six of the seven cuts he’s faced as well. He is not a guy that is likely to spiral off and should be in the running to win on Sunday. He’s well worth putting a unit on for Sunday.

Mark Hubbard (+35000) - Hubbard is another guy that is worth putting a unit on this weekend. He has been a pleasant surprise this season, making nine of the 10 cuts he’s faced this season and he is getting +35000 odds for this weekend’s event. Hubbard’s best finish this season was just a top-25, but he has consistently shot a few good rounds per tournament. He is a guy that just needs to find a way to put it together for four rounds and it’s likely that he’ll find a way to do it at some point. This is an excellent spot for him to show up and his talent could lead him to a win (and a big payday) on Sunday.
