Keegan Bradley

  • 2022 CJ Cup in South Carolina Odds: +3,300

Now sitting atop the FedExCup standings is former major champion Keegan Bradley, who is coming off an amazing win in Chiba, Japan from this past week’s ZOZO CHAMPIONSHIP. He’s now put up back-to-back top-five finishes to start the relatively new PGA TOUR season and will be a hot topic in South Carolina this week.

Perhaps the increased level of competition with the likes of defending champion Rory McIlroy and fellow standouts Jon Rahm, Jordan Spieth, and Scottie Scheffler making their respective season debuts limits Bradley’s ceiling this week. Then again, his pair of superb top-five showings make him a very attractive sleeper pick as we speak.

Emiliano Grillo

  • 2022 CJ Cup in South Carolina Odds: +5,000

Speaking of top-five finishes, Emiliano Grillo also has a pair of those under his belt this season already similar to Bradley. Although the Argentinian has yet to taste a PGA TOUR victory since 2015, he’s certainly been on the cusp of winning it all to start the 2022-23 season. Grillo finished in solo fourth place last week in Japan and tied for fifth a couple of weeks prior at the Sanderson Farms Championship. He’s yet to miss a cut in four starts this season and currently ranks seventh amongst all golfers with a 77.08 greens-in-regulation percentage.

Sahith Theegala

  • 2022 CJ Cup in South Carolina Odds: +6,000

Another early-season standout has been Cali native Sahith Theegala, whose T5 finish at the ZOZO CHAMPIONSHIP and a T6 finish at the Fortinet Championship to kick off the season has him as another worthy dark horse pick. Theegala’s success dates back to his rookie campaign from last season, as he now has seven top-20 finishes over his last 13 starts. The 24-year-old prodigy’s 4.90 birdie average is good enough for 14th overall on the TOUR; an impressive feat for a young rising prospect who’s off to another blazing start.
