Best Arnold Palmer Invitational 2023 Expert Picks

One surprise: expert fading Thomas, former world number 1 and one of the favorites. The 29-year-old has finished in the top 25 in four straight tournaments and finished fourth three weeks ago in Phoenix. He continues to argue with his top-level short game, but McDonald says “the inefficiency in other aspects of his game” makes him a fairly easy vanish. The two-time winner of the PGA championship was not even close to Ram, Scheffler and some others. Thomas ranks 93rd in shots landed and 115th in shooting.

At the same time, the pundit knows that Ram was the best of the hot golfers and doesn’t expect him to fade too much. The 28-year-old regained his first place in the rankings, which gave him even more confidence than he had already earned thanks to his stunning run. The Spaniard has won five of his last 10 tournaments around the world and finished in the top 10 in all of them. He won the Genesis 17 under and 93 under in the last five tournaments. Ram leads the green tour in terms of rules (75.7%) and average (67.2) and ranks ninth in hits scored. See who he supports on SportsLine.
