Waste Management Phoenix Open: PGA Odds, Pick, Predictions, Dark Horses - 2/1/18

If you're new to golf, you won't understand, but if you've watched this event before, you know that the crowds get rowdy, especially on the par-3 16th hole. Thomas made a double bogey in a 68.

Thomas left the course without speaking to the media.

Daniel Berger and Chez Reavie both signed for 65s to lie one stroke back on 133.

Phil Mickelson, another former Sun Devils star, was two shots behind as he rode the crowd support. With the long odds, I like Mickelson as a dark horse option. "It's very helpful and very important to my success".

On the Saturday previous year, another record was broken. He finished fourth in the event last year and was runner-up the year before when he lost in a playoff to Hideki Matsuyama.

It also means that there will be a new victor today, with Rickie Fowler surviving late miscues to share the second-round lead alongside Bryson DeChambeau. "It would just be nice if it was sooner rather than later".

He bogeyed the par-4 17th after chipping into the water, and then was angered when a woman screamed while Jordan Spieth was teeing off on 18. He also birdied 13 after playing the first 12 in even par with a birdie and a bogey.

"I'm a different person than the one I was a week ago", Rahm said. "The swing was just a fraction off". "Managed the mistakes properly, made some good putts, so just nice to get off to a good start here". "My third straight win here depended on this, so it's regrettable to have to drop out".

Haas carded three birdies and an eagle during a five-hole stretch on the back nine.

"I'm trying to focus on right here, right now, more than focusing on the win", he said. "Today played the front nine well". "For me, this is a fifth major".

"You got to go for flags", DeChambeau said. "It was anything but that".

While it's tough to get past the favourites in the U.S., we are content to take a shot at a few longer priced players in the Far East in an attempt to keep our good European Tour run going (a victor and a place in the last two weeks).
