The 2020 Shriners Hospital for Children Open (October 8-11) is this week’s tournament on the PGA Tour. The event continues its association with TPC Summerlin, where it has been played since 1992. The course is a par-71 measuring over 7,200 yards and it has a history of producing lots of players that regularly play well here.
World number 6 Bryson DeChambeau fits that description, and he tees it up for the first time since his power-hitting won him his first major in last month’s US Open. The bookmakers have him at single-figure odds to win back-to-back and he could easily follow up his win here in 2018, especially as finished fourth and seventh here either side of that win. The negative is he may just be tempted to bask in the glory of his first major for a little while longer.
Kevin Na missed his last cut but is another who could easily be revitalised by his return to TPC Summerlin. He also won the title here in 2009 and finished runner-up a year later.
It’s interesting that Francesco Molinari makes his first appearance since Covid-19 arrived in this event, as he was fourth on his only other appearance. But we can only guess what form he might be in. Jason Day also finished fourth on his only appearance but his run of good finished has come to an end lately.
Hideki Matsuyama isn’t far off playing his best golf and he’s posted three top-17 finished here. Webb Simpson has also been stringing consistent results together and has a win and two further top-7s here.
Denny McCarthy is one of the younger players that catches the eye at around 80/1. He’s finished 15th and 9th in his last two events and he also finished sixth on his TPC Summerlin debut last year. Matt Wolff also shot a respectable –15 under last year on his way to 18th place and he’s developed a lot as a player since. 25/1 looks fair after two top-4s in his last four events.
Patrick Cantlay is our Shriners Hospital for Children Open Tip 2020. Cantlay won here in 2017 and was then denied by one shot in 2018 by DeChambeau before losing in a playoff last year to Kevin Na. His record is second to none and the early odds may not last long.
