    Top Targets

    Jon Rahm
    FedEx Cup Rank (#1)
    Vegas Odds (9/1)
    DraftKings ($11,200)
    FanDuel ($11,900)

    The leader in FedEx Cup points entering the week returns to the BMW Championship with tremendous history. He has not only finished Top 10 five of six trips but won here at Olympia Fields back in 2020. It's tough to say where the ownership falls as he is third(DK) and fourth(FD) in pricing but has been the least consistent of the top 3, as well. Whether it be a major championship or playoff event Rahm shows up and has the same, if not more upside than any player in the field. He is my favourite overall play and pick to win this week!

    Viktor Hovland
    FedEx Cup Rank (#7)
    Vegas Odds (16/1)
    DraftKings ($10,300)
    FanDuel ($11,600)

    While it was a disappointing showing here at Olympia Fields back in 2020(T40), Hovland is a terrific course fit and one of my favourite plays on both sites this week. He isn't just Top 20 in every stat in my short-term model, he is 5th in SG: Tee to Green, 11th in Driving Distance, 12th in SG: Approach(5th in Prox 200+), 9th in SG: Around the Green(struggled here overall this season), and 2nd in Birdie or Better. Those stats reflect the elite consistency and he is also one of just three players in this field to make every cut this season(21/21). All things considered, I will have exposure to Hovland in all formats and some wagers on the outright, placings, and matchup markets.

    Lucas Glover
    FedEx Cup Rank (#4)
    Vegas Odds (33/1)
    DraftKings ($9,100)
    FanDuel ($10,500)

    The train is bound to come to a crashing end at some point, but I just can't fade Glover, who is playing at an elite level right now. He comes in having won back-to-back events at the St. Jude Championship and Wyndham Championship and has finished 6th or better in five of his last six events. During that stretch, he ranks(in this field), 3rd in SG: Tee to Green, 2nd in SG: Approach, 2nd in Par 4 Scoring, and 7th in Birdie or Better %. Looking at the stats from a full-season perspective, Glover has been elite with the irons this season ranking 1st in Good Drive %, 2nd in both fairways and rough proximity, 1st in overall proximity, and is also Top 10 in proximity from 150-200+ yards. Fire up Glvoer in all formats.

    Russell Henley
    FedEx Cup Rank (#15)
    Vegas Odds (33/1)
    DraftKings ($8,200)
    FanDuel ($10,000)

    Henley is sitting comfortably inside the cutline to the Tour Championship(15th) entering the seeking following back-to-back Top 10's at the St. Jude and Wyndham Championships. The top form goes back even further as Henley has made seven of his last eight cuts including those two Top 10's and four other Top 25 finishes. His all-around game has been spot on during this stretch as he ranks 10th in SG: Tee to Green, 3rd in SG: Approach, 6th in Par 4 Scoring, and 14th in DK points gained. He finished T25 here at Olympia Fields back in 2020 and I think that is his floor this time around.

    Adam Svensson
    FedEx Cup Rank (#39)
    Vegas Odds (110/1)
    DraftKings ($6,200)
    FanDuel ($7,600)

    It is fairly easy to go low this week considering it's another no-cut event with the Top 50 golfers in the FedEx Cup rankings this season. One of my favourites is Svennson who has found his stride since July long weekend(Canada Day!) making five straight cuts including a Top 10 at the Wyndham Championship two weeks ago. He also comes into the BMW Championship on a four-event streak of gaining four or more strokes Tee to Green and has gained strokes in all four SG categories in two of those events. At near min price, I will have lots of exposure to Svensson this week.
