Preview of the tournament:
With the early-season stints in Hawaii and California complete, the PGA Tour now heads across the country to begin the Florida swing. The Workday Championship moved from Mexico to Florida this year due to Covid-19 circumstances south of the border, and it’s expected to be packed with players from the Top 50 in world golf rankings. Only Tiger Woods and Paul Casey will not make an appearance.
As at all WGC events, the field at the Workday is limited in its size, but the quality of the field is hard to compete with. World No. 3 Justin Thomas will be there, where he’ll try to recover from a missed cut at last week’s Genesis Invitational. The two golfers ahead of Thomas in the Official World Golf Ranking, Dustin Johnson and Jon Rahm, will tee it up at the Workday as well.

Who is in the field?
This year’s competition boasts several of the world’s top-ranked players. World No. 1 and 2020 FedExCup champion Dustin Johnson, World No. 2 Jon Rahm, World No. 4 Xander Schauffele, and two-time FedExCup champion Rory McIlroy are just a few of the big names scheduled to compete.
Patrick Reed, No. 11 in the world, is the defending champion for the event, which was last held at Club de Golf Chapultepec in Mexico City. He won the event on a previous occasion in 2014 as well and already has a controversial PGA 1st-place finish to his name this year at the Farmers Insurance Open.
World No. 1 Dustin Johnson is the only player to have won all four of the WGC’s and enters the field as a favorite to win this one too, according to CBS Sports.
Other star players who will fight for the title alongside the three top-ranked golfers include Rory McIlroy, Bryson DeChambeau, Patrick Reed, Brooks Koepka, Collin Morikawa and more.
Elsewhere in the standings, Jordan Spieth’s performance at the Genesis Invitational failed to punch him a ticket to a WGC event for the first time since he became a tour pro in 2013.
WGC-Workday Championship picks:
Winner (10-1): The golf course that kept popping up over and over again when I researched The Concession is Muirfield Village. Rahm is coming off a beastly performance at the Memorial last year and a top-five finish at Riviera following a Sunday 66. He’s a far better bet here than Dustin Johnson at 13/2.
Top 10 (+200): Hovland has been the second-best ball-striker in the world over the last 90 days behind only Dustin Johnson. He has five top-six finishes in his last six events, and will thrive on a long, difficult golf course that’s could be akin to Muirfield Village. He’s also 19th on the PGA Tour in par-5 scoring average, which will be important this week.
Sleeper (40-1): Sleepers are hard to find in WGC events, but Scheffler is a really great ball-striker who’s on a nice mini-run of two straight top-20 finishes following two missed cuts in a row. He’s in the “if the putter gets hot” crowd, and is worth the pull at 40-1 because his name has not yet caught up with his talent.
