AT&T Byron Nelson 2018 Preview

Jordan Spieth in action off the tee

The PGA Tour moves on to Dallas this week for the AT&T Byron Nelson and we will take a look at who might prosper with these PGA Tour tips.

Jordan Spieth to win @ 5/1 - BET NOW

It might seem an obvious choice to go for the top-ranked player in the field but there are a number of reasons why Spieth is my choice to take this title on Sunday.

He may have finished down in a share of 41st at last week’s Players Championship but a superb 65 in round three proved that he is in decent form and ready to win again.

The 24-year-old could not keep it together for four rounds but Sawgrass is a course that can trick even the best and the world number three certainly comes in that category.

This week’s tournament has moved to Trinity Forest Golf Club which, as it happens, Spieth is a member of and knows well, while he has already shown a liking for playing in his home state having won the Dean & DeLuca Invitational in Fort Worth two years ago.

He was also third in this year’s Houston Open and, in a relatively weak field, looks like the man to beat as he seeks first win since last year’s Open Championship.

It is a course that has similarities to Chambers Bay, where Spieth won the US Open in 2015, with graft and guile placed ahead of brute strength.

Jimmy Walker Top 5 Finish 4/1 - BET NOW

PGA Tour odds have the 39-year-old at 20/1 to win the tournament and there are certainly a number of pointers as to why he might do well.

The Texas resident has not won since claiming the 2016 US PGA Championship but roared through the field to claim a share of second at last week’s Players.

The 39-year-old has struggled with health problems in recent times but is on the comeback trail and, when fit, is one of the most consistent players on tour.

Fourth in the Texas Open in his outing before Sawgrass, Walker clearly likes the Lone Star State.

Marc Leishman Top 10 Finish @ 9/4 - BET NOW

PGA Tour betting on the Australian to finish in the top 10 will have proved fruitful this season as he has managed it four times already, including at the Masters.

The 34-year-old is now firmly established in the world’s top 20 players and was seventh at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and eighth at the Farmers Insurance earlier this year.

Add to that a tie for seventh in the restricted-field Tournament of Champions and it is easy to see why the Victorian is ranked 16th in the world.

A three-time winner on the PGA Tour, Leishman knows how to get the job done and it would be a surprise not to see his name near the top of the leaderboard on Sunday.

He may not win it but has every chance of making it yet another top-10 for the year.
