There are not lines

2024 American Express Top Pick

Defending champ Jon Rahm is now at LIV Golf, which is why Scheffler is the chalk in this. Xander Schauffele finished a couple of strokes off of Rahm at the 2023 The American Express.

Xander’s four days were exceptional: 62, 64, 67, and 69. If Schauffele shoots a -25 at this year’s American Express, it might be good enough to win the trophy. The world’s fifth ranked golfer is formidable.

2024 American Express Second Pick

Scottie Scheffler ranks first in the world. Scottie warmed up for this with a fifth place finish in the Sentry Championship where he shot a 66-64-71-66.

After the four days at the Sentry, Scheffler sat at -25. The fifth place finish was Scottie’s first tournament played since winning the Hero World Challenge, Tiger Woods’ charity event tournament.

No doubt, the chalk can win this. He’s the top ranked golfer in the world. So a victory wouldn’t surprise. But Schauffele’s possible payout attracts more than Scheffler’s, which is why the world number one is the second pick.

2024 American Express Third Pick

The world’s sixth ranked golfer had a decent Sentry Championship where he shot a 66-68-68-67to finish at -23 and tied for twelfth. Patrick Cantlay hadn’t played since finishing fifth at the TOUR Championship in August.

The fact he scored a top 15 in his first tournament since the TOUR tells us he could be on the verge of a victory. Cantlay shot okay at the 2023 The American Express, finishing at -18 and twenty-third.

Any improvement could mean he signs his card on Sunday the winner. If you believe, go for it.

2024 American Express Underdog Pick

The odds on Chris Kirk makes him an overlay for sure. The 40-to-1 shot won the Sentry Championship after shooting a 67-65-66-65 and -29. Kirk followed up the Sentry victory with a decent eighteenth at the Sony Open in Hawaii this past week.

Kirk finished at -25, tied with Schauffele and 2 strokes off Rahm, at the 2023 The American Express. He for sure can win this. So even if you like a different golfer, consider a small play on the top underdog on the board.
