Alex Noren impressed last week at the Farmers Insurance Open and was unfortunate to lose in a playoff. Normally that sort of performance would see him shorten for his next start but the Monday finish has seen his price drift since betting for the Phoenix Open started.
What I like about Noren is that when he gets hot, he stays hot. In the second half of 2016 he won four times in eleven starts and his purple patch in 2017 produced results of 10-1-15-MC-10.
Possibly underrated because of his lack of experience on the PGA Tour people forget he finished tenth at the Players and T5 at the Match Play last season. The world number 16 is too big in the betting.
1pt each-way Alex Noren at 45/1 Stan James (6 places; 1/5 odds)
