    Avondale hosts Zurich Classic on Thursday
    By Zach Cohen

    Zurich Classic of New Orleans

    Tees Off: Thursday, April 28th
    TPC Louisiana – Avondale, LA

    The Zurich Classic kicks off this week as the PGA members head to the Gulf Coast for a tourney which has been held since 1938. There are typically a lot of birdies at this event, with the victors carding at least a score of 15-under-par since 2010. Last year, it was Justin Rose who emerged as the winner. Rose was on fire all weekend, finishing the tournament at 22-under. Cameron Tringale did, however, put up a fight. Tringale shot a 21-under and had plenty of chances to get himself to the top of the leaderboard. Both guys will be back for this tournament in 2016, along with guys like Jason Day and Rickie Fowler. Charley Hoffman will also be playing this tournament. He is fresh off of a victory at the Valero Texas Open, so he’s going to be confident coming into this event. With that out of the way, let’s now take a look at who might be coming away victorious on Sunday:

    Jason Day (5-to-1) – Jason Day has a chance to win whenever he is playing in a tournament and that isn’t going to be changing this weekend. Day is going to be coming into this one in search of his first ever victory at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans and that will certainly motivate him on Thursday. Not only will he be hungry for a win, but Day also happens to be playing some great golf this season. He has won two tournaments on the year and has two other top-10 finishes on the season. In a relatively weak field, the 5-to-1 odds he’s getting are really not that bad. He’s worth putting a few units on before Thursday.

    Justin Rose (8-to-1) – It’s very difficult to find a way to avoid taking Rose this weekend. He has been excellent at TPC Louisiana lately, coming in the top-15 at each of his past four appearances in this event. Not only has he consistently been near the top of this tournament’s leaderboard, but he also won this event in 2015. Rose’s 22-under was extremely impressive and it’s hard to believe he won’t be able to do something close to that again this weekend. He’ll also be extremely hungry coming into this one, as he has not yet won a tournament this season. He’s far too good of a player to not have one win this year and he’s worth taking at 8-to-1, as it’s extremely likely Rose will come away with the victory on Sunday.

    Billy Horschel (18-to-1) – Billy Horschel is not a very consistent golfer, but he is playing very well coming into this tournament. At last week’s Valero Texas Open, Horschel shot nine-under and that was good for a tie for fourth place in the tournament. He’ll now carry that momentum into an event that has been kind to him in the past. Horschel won the Zurich Classic of New Orleans back in 2013, shooting a 20-under to defeat D.A. Points by a stroke. That type of play should be repeatable for Horschel, and that makes him a good value at 18-to-1. He’s worth putting a unit or two on this weekend.

    Cameron Tringale (50-to-1) – As previously mentioned, Tringale was the runner-up at last year’s Zurich Classic of New Orleans. The 28-year-old shot a 21-under in the tournament and that would have been good enough to win nine of the past 10 tournaments in Avondale. If he can recapture some of that magic then he would pay off huge for some people this weekend. He’s a talented player and the 50-to-1 odds he’s getting are very enticing. He’s worth putting a unit or half-unit on for Thursday.

    PGA Tour Picks: Zurich Classic Odds Worthy Of Your Bet
    Patton Kizzire Experts Zurich Golf Pick

    A birdie festival in a festive city as The PGA Tour heads to New Orleans for The Zurich Classic..

    Zurich Classic
    New Orleans is affectionately known by many as “The Big Easy” and this week on The PGA Tour is exactly that. The golfers are very well taken care of by this town known for its good times, great food, and hospitable demeanor. The golfers are also well taken care of by a very “Big Easy” golf course as while TPC Louisiana may be big and long it too produces some of the lowest scores of the year.

    Justin Rose is your Zurich Classic defending champion, turning in card of 22-under par last season. The course ranked 49th hardest on Tour in 2015, meaning only 3-tracks were easier, as the scoring average for the field was under 70. There is not a lot of rhyme or reason as to why or who wins here at TPC Louisiana and there have been many first time Tour winners here – but one will definitely have to go low. The tournament is in its 67th year but this course will be hosting its 11th edition and if you look at the past winners, they include Nick Watney, Jerry Kelly, Jason Dufner, Bubba Watson, Billy Horschel, and the aforementioned, Rose. Both big hitters and short knockers have prevailed.. but the one element or skill set they do have in common is Ball Striking and the ability to hit greens in regulation.

    Pete Dye designed TPC Louisiana and did so by bringing a great deal of water and sand bunkers into play but the fairways are relatively wide and the greens are of Tour average size. What we will look for this week to rise to the top, is a player that is driving and striking the ball well, hitting greens in regulation, and gets hot with the putter. Birdie opportunities and birdie opportunities converted will be paramount this week – just to keep up with the pace.

    The Favorites

    Jason Day +500 – The number one player in the world finished 23rd two weeks ago at another Pete Dye design, Harbour Town Golf Links, for the RBC Heritage but my feeling is that Day is much more concerned about another Dye course coming up in two weeks, TPC Sawgrass, for The Players. Obviously he has the ability though to lap the field in what is one of the weakest of the season.

    Justin Rose +800 – Rose is one of the best ball strikers in the world and he proved that with a win here last year. Prior to his win in 2015, Rose finished 8th, 15th, and 10th here in consecutive seasons.

    Rickie Fowler +1000 – This will be the first return to action for the 5th ranked player in the world since his utter disappointment at The Masters where he missed the cut and came up grossly short of expectations. Rickie will be defending his title at The Players in two weeks and I have to believe he will be working hard this week to get his game back in order.

    The Contenders

    Billy Horschel +2000 – Horschel won here in 2013 and has always been known as a top ball striker. He had a great week last week, finishing 4th at The Valero, and a 17th at The Masters two weeks before that. If he can get hot with his putter, he should be in the mix.

    Daniel Berger +2500 – The 47th ranked player in the world comes into New Orleans playing extremely well. He finished 5th at Houston, the week before Augusta, and then turned in another Top 10 at The Masters. He finished 6th here last year in his very first ever appearance.

    Smylie Kaufman +3300 – All smiles indeed this week as Kaufman is very familiar with these parts. Growing up in Alabama and attending LSU, Smylie should be able to dial up plenty of birdies this week in what will be his first time competing in The Zurich. He ranks 13th on Tour in Birdie Average.

    The Long Shots

    Cameron Tringale +5000 – Tringale has made three straight cuts heading in after missing the cut in three of the four prior weeks, and his game may be coming into form at just the right time. This is a course that apparently suits him as he ranks second best in relation to par on this course since 2012.

    Sean O’Hair +8000 – If stats were all that mattered, O’Hair would not be an 80-to-1 shot to win this week. He checks all of the boxes for Ball Striking, Putting, Scoring, Greens in Regulation.. but we’ll see if he can put that into practice. He did last year in New Orleans, finishing 12th.
    David Hearn +1000 at Bet365 – Only a couple shots behind, Tringale, David Hearn ranks 3rd here in relation to par since 2012. He hasn’t missed a cut in five tries at The Zurich and finished 6th here last season.

    The Pick
    The risk here is that it is Kizzire’s first time playing this event but as we mentioned, TPC Louisiana has had a history of crowning first time winners. He stands 6-feet 5-inches tall and putts lights out. HIs ball striking could be better but he ranks 11th in Scoring and 20th in Birdie Average. He fired a couple of 69’s at Pete Dye’s Stadium Course in La Quinta earlier this season and just finished 14th two weeks ago at Dye’s Harbour Town course. The youngster ought to be plenty familiar with this course too, attending Auburn University and growing up in nearby Alabama. I’ll go with the big kid in The Big Easy as my betting pick.

    Value play on Sarpsborg as they are big underdogs but have scored 4 goals in their last two matches. I hope to see them score quickly and play like they have recently.
