Big Names Bowing Out

Just like the case in the round robin play of this event, where Jon Rahm was the only player of the top 20 to advance to the round of 16, great players exited stage left in the two rounds played Saturday, with the likes of Jordan Spieth, Bubba Watson and Ian Poulter losing in the morning and Rahm, Sergio Garcia and Tommy Fleetwood failing to advance in the afternoon session.

Billy Horschel More Decorated Than Perez

Many peopleโ€™s brackets wouldโ€™ve been busted trying to predict this matchup in the semi-finals, with Victor Perez, a one time European Tour winner coming off a T-9 at the Players Championship two weeks ago. Billy Horschel has won the FedEx Cup in addition to five PGA Tour victories, and was T-2 three events ago at the most recent World Golf Championships event at the Concession.

Perez defeated Marc Leishman and Sungjae Im in the round robin and Robert Macintyre and Sergio Garcia to get to the semis while Horschel had to go through a group headed by Collin Morikawa, the WGC-Workday Championship winner that he was a runner-up in. He took care of Kevin Streelman and then Tommy Fleetwood in extra holes.

Whoever wins this match will likely be the underdog heading into the final, but Horschel is more decorated and has played better in the States, which is the surer bet.

Pick: Billy Horschel to defeat Victor Perez (-134)

Matt Kuchar A Match Play Savant

Despite Scottie Scheffler being the favorite to win his match against Matt Kuchar, itโ€™s hard to argue with the grizzled veteranโ€™s success at this tournament, winning in 2013, and he finished runner-up in the most recent WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play.

Kuchar also got through the group of death, defeating defending champ Kevin Kisner and major champions Justin Thomas and Louis Oosthuizen. Then he dispatched three-time major champ Jordan Spieth Saturday morning and Brian Harman, who won his match with eight straight birdies against Bubba Watson.

The last two victories by Scheffler were very impressive against match play aficionado Ian Poulter and updated tournament favorite Jon Rahm. Heโ€™s never won a PGA Tour event, though heโ€™s very close to breaking through. Iโ€™d prefer to take the decorated champ in Kuchar who has 33 wins in this format.

Pick: Matt Kuchar to defeat Scottie Scheffler (+115) and win final (+300)
