A strong field lines-up for the Genesis Open this week played on the classic layout of Riviera Country Club. It’s easy to make a case for anyone near the top of the market but we saw with Ted Potter last week how players can win from leftfield and i’m going that way again with Sung Kang.
The South Korean can be described as streaky at best, he missed nine cuts last year but he also went close on a number of occasions. The 30-year-old put himself in the mix at the Phoenix Open, Houston Open, Texas Open and CIMB Classic in 2017 and although he faltered under pressure at least he’s getting into those positions.
Kang is 3/3 in cuts made at Riviera with finishes of 72-8-22 and ranked 49th in adjusted scoring average last season. He is the type of player who will pop-up in a big tournament this season.
1pt e/w Sung Kang at 200/1 Coral (7 places; 1/5 odds)
