Sam Burns, PGA Tour, Travelers Championship

CROMWELL, Conn. — Fresh off a solid performance at the U.S. Open , Sam Burns arrives at the Travelers Championship feeling strong about his game, as it is trending in the right direction.

Burns opened the RBC Canadian Open with a 7-under 63 and ultimately tied for 10th. He then tied for 15th at the Memorial, as a 3-over 75 during the second round kept him from threatening Scheffler and others towards the top of the leaderboard. Then, last week at Pinehurst No. 2 , Burns closed with a final round 3-under 67, which gave him a back-door top-10 finish.

Yet, the former LSU Tiger did not have that consistency in the weeks prior. Burns missed the cut at both the Masters and the PGA Championship and did not have his best stuff at Harbour Town. But during that stretch, he and his wife Caroline welcomed a baby boy named Bear on April 22—the same day Scottie Scheffler won the RBC Heritage , which ended with a Monday finish.

His now 8-week-old has kept him busy, and being a new father is never easy. Yet, his son has given him a boost of momentum over the past three weeks.

Now he is back in New England for his fourth tournament in a row, hoping to secure his first PGA Tour title since the 2023 WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play.

Sam Burns, U.S. Open

SB Nation caught up with Burns to talk about his life and his game ahead of this week’s Travelers Championship—the final Signature Event of the season.

One-on-one with Ryder Cup star Sam Burns:

(Editor’s Note: This conversation has been lightly edited and modified for readability and clarity.)

Playing Through: First question for you: how is your son Bear doing?

Sam Burns: He is great; it’s gone by quickly. He is eight weeks old already, but it’s been nice having him out on the road during the last couple of weeks. They’re here again this week, so it’s been really fun.

PT: Nice! That’s great to hear. You and Scottie Scheffler are obviously really good friends, and you have a similar timeline with your children, too.

Burns: Yeah, we’re actually staying in a house together this week. Did so last week at Pinehurst, and then we got home one day after a round last week, and we’re sitting there holding the babies, and we looked at each other and said, “Wow, life has really changed quickly.”

PT: Being on the road as much as you are, how tough is it to be a new father and still try to compete at the highest level?

Burns: I think when you get out here and get to the golf course, it’s truly like any other job. You are focused on what you are trying to do. You obviously miss being at home with them, but at the end of the day, I have a job to do this week. Been coming out here last few days and just prepare the best I can, then when I get home, its time to change diapers and hold the little one. It’s a little bit different than what I used to do, but I wouldn't change it for the world.

PT: What’s the state of your game right now? You played well at the U.S. Open , how are you feeling?

Burns: Yeah, it was nice to play well there on Sunday. I had been playing well there all week, but anytime you can go bogey-free at a U.S. Open is always a nice thing. My game is feeling better. I’ve played well the last three weeks, and I am excited to tee it up this week.

PT: What clicked for you during that final round 3-under 67?

Burns: I putted well. As the golf course continued to get tougher, I think it was important to figure out where you could leave it around the greens. That was the key thing for us, especially on Sunday. It was difficult to get the ball on the greens, so where you ended up and dealing with what you had in front of you was really important. And we were able to do a really good job of that and manage that.

PT: Did you get a chance to watch the crazy finish?

Burns: By the time I got home, I probably saw the last four holes. Yeah, it was pretty wild to see. Excited for Bryson. He obviously played really well all week. But also tough for Rory. For Rory to finish that way, as a competitor and as a player, you don’t wish that upon anybody. But I know he obviously took it pretty tough—as he should of. But he will bounce back.

Sam Burns, U.S. Open

PT: Speaking of Rory McIlroy, he announced that he will next play at the Genesis Scottish Open. Are you going to play before that somewhere?

Burns: No, I’m actually going to take three weeks off after the Travelers, which will be great. (Burns will next play at The Open at Royal Troon, which begins Jul. 18.)

PT: This golf course, at least from my understanding, is a ball-strikers course. You have to be precise. It’s not a bomber’s course, and you must have your short game. So what do you make of TPC River Highlands?

Burns: I think with a couple of the changes that they made—the first time I saw them was on Tuesday—so I think the changes were good. They made the holes better. On 12, they took away being able to hit to the bottom of the fairway, which puts the bunkers more in play. Yeah I think the changes they made were good changes. They made the green on 11 a little bit smaller. So yeah you have to be precise with your irons. You also have to drive it well to set yourself up, but it’s all about getting good looks on the greens.

PT: Commissioner Jay Monahan announced that the Travelers Championship will be another Signature Event in 2025.

Burns: Awesome!

PT: From what we have heard from players, this is one of the favorite stops on tour, correct?

Burns: For sure. I love coming up here every year. Last year, I unfortunately had to miss it for a buddy’s wedding. But I always love coming up here. The fans are incredible, the community supports this event like no other. I also love going to eat some pizza at Sally’s in New Haven. We went there last night, it was awesome. But yes, this is always one of my favorites to come to.

PT: And then the Ryder Cup last year, how cool of an experience was that?

Burns: It was incredible. I wish the result would have been different, but an incredible experience. Going to play in Italy was extremely fun.

Sam Burns, Rory McIlroy, 2023 Ryder Cup

PT: Is there a lesson or takeaway from Marco Simone that you had and have applied to this year?

Burns: A little bit. I think playing over there is a lot different. I played a President’s Cup in the U.S., but that was a lot different—especially with how it feels. Over there, you expect everyone to root against you and that’s exactly what we felt. But it was really fun.

PT: You are such a great putter. Do you have any advice for amateur players on the putting greens?

Burns: A lot of times, from what I see with amateurs and putting, you know, in the Pro-Ams, they are always asking me to read putts for them and give them a line. But I am thinking, ‘You know I have seen you hit the last three putts, if I read this putt for you, it’s not going to help because you are either going to hit six feet short or six feet long.’ So the biggest thing is the speed. You see a lot of amateurs three and four-putt, mostly due to speed control. I think if you can take even five or 10 minutes before your round or after your round, and spend time hitting 20 footers, that will help. You want to try and get to within that three-foot circle. The make percentage from 20 feet is already pretty low. You see, guys try to make these 20-footers, and they ram it 10 feet past the hole, and they have a slippery putt coming back. You may get lucky one time, but you are losing strokes more often than not. When you hit it that hard, the hole becomes that much smaller, too. So speed control is big and amateurs should focus on that more than anything.

Farmers Insurance Open betting guide: 7 picks our gambling expert loves this week

  • Follow on Twitter

Tony Finau is a our expert's top betting pick at Torrey Pines this week.

Getty Images

Welcome to our weekly PGA Tour gambling-tips column, featuring picks from GOLF.com’s expert prognosticator Brady Kannon. A seasoned golf bettor and commentator, Kannon is a regular guest on SportsGrid, a syndicated audio network devoted to sports and sport betting. You can follow on Twitter at @LasVegasGolfer, and you can read his picks below for the Farmers Insurance Open, which gets underway Wednesday in La Jolla, Calif. Along with Kannon’s recommended plays, you’ll also see data from Chirp,  a free-to-play mobile platform  that features a range of games with enticing prizes, giving fans all kinds of ways to engage in the action without risking any money. After three straight winners, cashing at triple-digit odds, the PGA Tour continues its West Coast Swing in San Diego at storied Torrey Pines for the Farmers Insurance Open . Host of the U.S. Open in both 2008 and 2021, Torrey Pines is expected to be the toughest test these players have faced so far in 2024. This week’s winning score proposition bet is the highest it’s been this season with an under/over of 272.5, or 15.5 under par.  Three of the four rounds will be played on the monster South Course, which stretches to nearly 7,800 yards. On Wednesday and Thursday, each player will play one round on the easier North Course. Note that this tournament will begin on Wednesday for the third straight year, ending on Saturday to avoid viewership conflict with the NFL Championship games coming up this Sunday. News 2024 Farmers Insurance Open odds: This South African pro is our long-shot pick at Torrey Pines

With three of the four rounds being played on the South Course, we’ll focus on this in our handicap. With the course being so long, distance off the tee is a bonus but not necessarily a requirement as we have seen shorter knockers win here in the past. More importantly, I like to look at Total Driving — a measurement of combined accuracy and distance off the tee. The putting surfaces on the South Course are Poa Annua, a common coastal grass that can really divide a field as some players tend to really struggle with it while others flourish. Case in point: Brandt Snedeker and Jason Day, Poa Annua specialists who have each won twice at Torrey Pines.

The rough will be thick and likely wet as there has been rain in the area leading up to Wednesday’s start. The forecast during play however, is not calling for additional rain. Soft conditions may tend to hold more tee shots in the fairway. The majority of the approach shots here will come from 200+ yards and most of the par 4’s measure between 450-500 yards.

Finally, Scrambling. With a golf course of this length, hitting the greens in regulation will not be easy and players will be asked to get up and down from around the greens repeatedly. Because this is a championship track, one must do everything well here this week in order to succeed — but three areas of great importance for me are Total Driving, as mentioned, approach play from 200+, and Scrambling. Do these three things well and make a few putts, and you may find yourself winning the Farmers Insurance Open.

Tony Finau (28-1)

One of the class players in the field, Finau may have the best course form of the bunch with a Top 20 and a Top 15 finish here in the past, along with five Top-10 finishes, including a runner-up. He comes in playing well, with seven of his eight rounds this season being in the 60s. Over his last 24-rounds, Finau ranks 13th in this field for Hole Proximity from 200+ yards. He’s also fared well on a few of the correlated courses I looked at, taking first and second at Vidanta Vallarta for the Mexican Open, finishing eighth at the U.S. Open at Winged Foot in 2020, and fourth at Harding Park for the PGA Championship in that same year.

Harris English (50-1)

Like Finau, English is another player with strong history at Torrey Pines, having finished eighth, 14th and runner-up in 2015. He took third here at the 2021 U.S. Open. English was fourth at Winged Foot in 2020 and 19th at Harding Park. Two other courses I considered as corollaries: Quail Hollow and Corales Puntacana. English has finished Top 5 at both. Over the last 12 rounds on Poa Annua greens, English is fifth in this field for SG: Putting. He is also strong in Driving Accuracy and on approach. In English’s last three starts, he’s been Top 20 in the field for Driving Accuracy and Top 15 for SG: Approach.

Nicolai Hojgaard (50-1)

A member of the winning Ryder Cup team back in September, the Dane is making his debut at the Farmers Insurance Open and his first start in America of 2024. It can be risky backing a debutant, but there is a lot to like about the way Hojgaard has been going as of late. Since November on the DP World Tour, in his last four starts, Hojgaard has finished seventh, 25th, first, and second. He is very long off the tee, ranking 16 th  in this field for Driving Distance over the last 24 rounds. In 2023, Hojgaard finished 33rd at Vidanta Vallarta and second at Corales Puntacana. I’ll take a chance on a player with a very hot hand.

Shane Lowry (70-1)

I will admit, this may be a bit of an odd pick for a guy that hasn’t been quite what we are used to in a couple of seasons, but there are definitely some signs that he could go well here at this venue. Lowry has always been a player that excels on demanding golf courses. Last season, he recorded Top 20 finishes at the Genesis Invitational, Honda Classic, the Masters, PGA Championship, the Memorial, U.S. Open, and the Genesis Scottish Open. He ranked 14th on Tour in Total Driving last season. Over the last 24 rounds, Lowry is eighth in this field for SG: Approach, and 36th in Hole Proximity from 200+ yards. The short game has been a problem recently, but over time, he’s been known to have some of the best touch around the greens in the world. I believe he just might show up with a chance this week in San Diego.

Adam Svensson (90-1)

Rory Mcilroy

Inside Rory McIlroy’s Dubai trip — and competing visions for pro golf’s future

After getting his first Tour win in the fall of 2022, Svensson has been a player on the rise, now ranked 58th in the OWGR. In 2023, he finished the season ranked 34th on Tour for SG: Total, 59th in SG: Off the Tee, 50th in SG: Approach, and 59th for SG: Putting. In this field, over the last 24-rounds, Svensson ranks 12th on approach, 33rd for Good Drives Gained, 27th on the Par 4s 450-500 yards, and first in Hole Proximity from 200+ yards. He’s 24th in this field over the last 12 rounds for SG: Putting on Poa Annua. At Quail Hollow, a correlated course for me, it was last season, against a stacked field at the Wells Fargo Championship (a Signature Event) that Svensson finished a very respectable 27th.

Ben Griffin (100-1)

Will it be four triple-digit odds winners in a row? If it is, Griffin ought to be one that is in the mix. He comes off of two very solid showings to start the season: 30th at the Sony Open and ninth last week at the American Express. He closed last season with a Top-10 finish at the RSM Classic in November. In his first-ever trip to Torrey Pines last season, Griffin finished 31st, ranking 16th in the field for Driving Distance. Over the last 24-rounds, he is 31st in this field in Scrambling, 25th in Hole Proximity from 200+ yards, and 13th on the Par 4s of 450-500 yards.

Taylor Pendrith (130-1)

Pendrith is a big hitter with a solid track record at other especially long golf courses. He’s finished 16th here at Torrey Pines, 30th at Vidanta Vallarta, 34th at Corales Puntacana, and 23rd at Winged Foot at the 2020 U.S. Open. He’s shown an ability to putt on Poa Annua with a seventh-place finish at Pebble Beach last year and comes in off of a 10th place finish at the Sony Open two weeks ago. Over the last 24 rounds, Pendrith ranks seventh in this field for SG: Approach, 20th in Scrambling, 11th in Hole Proximity from 200+ yards and 18th on the 450-500 yard Par 4s.

Golf Betting Tips

Welcome to Golf Betting System, the United Kingdom’s number 1 independent website for free golf betting tips and a supporting suite of golf betting resources. Driven by founders Steve Bamford and Paul Williams, Golf Betting System provides weekly golf betting tips across the Major Championships, PGA Tour and DP World Tour. We specialise solely in golf betting, providing all of our content for free with the goal of giving you with the very best tournament, course, player, statistical data and bookmaker information to help you with your golf selections for upcoming events.

Golf Betting System was established in 2009 with the aim of promoting profitable golf betting. Developed over the course of 2007 and 2008, we launched with a unique golf betting predictor, an evolved version of which we still feature today. Using a mix of both the predictor output, golf course, player statistics, and insight gained from watching golf tournaments, 2009 saw the first year that Golf Betting System covered both the PGA and DP World Tours each week with free published predictor models and golf betting tips.

DP World/PGA Tour Golf Tipsters

Steve Bamford has covered the PGA Tour with his golf betting previews and tips since 2009. Covering over 40 tournaments per season, Steve’s betting previews provide a detailed analysis of every event. Constituents include a detailed appraisal of the course, course designer links, and what specific player skill-sets are required to win. Previous tournament champions, their winning totals, and historical odds are all included. Steve also details previous tournament weather conditions, a weather forecast, what the likely course conditions will be and how that will affect the likely winning score. Bookmaker of the Week is an important angle for punters, highlighting the very best each-way value offered for each tournament, with Steve presenting his reasoned PGA Tour tips for the tournament. Current and Historical P&Ls are available here .

Paul Williams has covered the DP World Tour (formerly the European Tour) with his golf betting tips and previews since 2009 – current and Historical P&Ls are available here . Paul’s knowledge of the DP World Tour courses, tournaments and players is exceptional. That’s no easy task with the DP World Tour featuring a host of new graduates each season and a diverse range of new courses and venues. Paul’s DP World Tour tips articles provide an in-depth analysis of every event. Constituents include a detailed appraisal of the course, what specific player skill-sets are required to win, previous tournament champions, their winning totals, historical odds and analysis, likely course conditions and winning total. Paul also takes time to peruse the betting markets to highlight which bookmaker is offering the very best value for every tournament.

As ever, if you have any feedback then please contact us through the normal channels, any thoughts and comments are very much appreciated.

Listen To Our Golf Betting Tips Podcast

The increasingly popular Golf Betting System Podcast is available pretty much every week from January to November. Hosted by Steve Bamford with DP World Tour expert Paul Williams and podcast pundit Barry O’Hanrahan, the lads discuss each tournament in detail including course descriptions, tournament trends, course conditions, likely weather and their own opinions on players to back.

The podcast has been a hugely popular addition to the Golf Betting System content portfolio, with thousands downloading each and every week across a multitude of podcast platforms, including iTunes, Spotify, YouTube, Stitcher and Podbean.

Golf Betting Forum

Established in 2009, Golf Betting System has always welcomed feedback, input and knowledge from its readers, listeners and watchers. As early as 2010, we launched our Golf Betting Forum on Facebook. It’s a moderated Closed Group, where you can have your say, voice your golf betting tips, or pass on advice to fellow members.

As far as golf betting knowledge and experience is concerned, it’s a forum that’s hard to beat and it’s undoubtedly the busiest golf betting forum on the internet. The group is also the place to enter our regular competitions throughout the season and, if you’re a fan of Fantasy Golf in its various different guises, we run season-long Golf Betting System leagues with cash prizes up for grabs. We always welcome individuals interested in golf betting, so don’t hesitate to get involved – you can join here .

Golf Form Guide

For golf betting form stats and history, our tournament statistics pages are a popular starting point for punters each week. For a regular tournament on the PGA and DP World Tour, 4 standard form guides are produced each week:

  • Current Form Stats : the field ranked by a player’s average finish over the last 12 events chronologically.
  • First Round Leader Stats : the field ranked by a player’s average first round score at the event, combined with their first round finishing positions from the last 20 events.
  • Event Stats : the field ranked by a player’s average score at this event, back to 2002. On occasion this stat is adapted as a course history stat instead if that’s more appropriate.
  • Combined Stats : a combined view of both current form and event stats for the field.

In addition, where there are at least 2 years worth of stats available on the course being played, we also publish Strokes Gained summaries for both Tours as part of our golf betting guide.

Our golf form guides are published each Monday and updated with odds and tee times as the week progresses. You can access these using the tournament boxes at the top of the homepage and also via our golf stats section .

Historical stats from 2020 onwards also have the final finishing position of each player added, so if you like to try to decipher trends by looking at the top performers of an event historically and how their current/course form looked ahead of the tournament, then you’ll love this feature! 2020 Tournaments – 2021 Tournaments – 2022 Tournaments .

Golf Betting Tips And Stats

Golf betting predictor.

Since our launch in 2009, Golf Betting System has always featured free-to-use PGA Tour and DP World Tour golf betting predictor models.

Subscription-free, you can use our predictor models as much as you like and as many of your own tailor-made reports as you like free of charge. Steve and Paul also publish a predictor model for each tournament based upon our own research findings. Our predictor models are a fantastic tool to take golf fields of up to 200+ players and use individual player data to produce target lists of players for each tournament.

Variables include player form, course top 10s, tournament average scores and OWGR. The predictors also include player skill-sets including Driving Accuracy, Greens in Regulation, Putting Average, Putts per Round and Scrambling. Scoring-wise, look for Eagle Performance, Birdie Performance, Bogey Avoidance and tellingly Par 3, 4, and 5 Performance.

Our PGA Tour predictor also includes extra variables for results by Green Grass, Course Conditions, Windy conditions, Course Designer and by region within the United States.

2024 Travelers Championship Tournament preview

The Travelers Championship is this week, and the PGA Tour follows up on a major championship with its now traditional follow-up in New England. The Travelers is a great, well-supported event on a course that can give up low scores. However, big misses can be penalized on a fairly tight course.

2024 Travelers Championship Tournament rankings: Top 10 teams

1. Xander Schauffele : Xander has won here in recent memory, seems to like the tournament and had yet another top-10 week on a big stage.

2. Scottie Scheffler : Scheffler seemed off for the first several days of the US Open, like a guy who felt uncomfortable at Pinehurst No. 2. The weekend was better.

3. Rory McIlroy : What can you say? The guy had the US Open on his Spider, and he let it slip out of his grasp. How he comes back from that is very much uncertain.

4. Patrick Cantlay : Cantlay has long liked TPC River Highlands and challenged a sub-60 score here as an amateur. Enjoyed a great week at Pinehurst amid a crummy season.

5. Ludvig Aberg: Ludvig got caught making some bad decisions on No. 13 on Saturday, and that cost him a chance at a first major title. He's a quick learner.

6. Collin Morikawa : Morikawa has been tremendous for three months, and this is a venue that should reward his tremendous ballstriking.

7. Tony Finau : Finau had himself yet another great week, continuing a run of them, and he seems to walk out of Pinehurst with his head held high.

8. Sam Burns : Burns continues to rediscover the form of a guy that was thought not long ago to be in the top five in the world.

9. Tommy Fleetwood : Fleetwood may not win in America, but he is consistently putting himself in a good position on the leaderboard.

10. Matthieu Pavon: Pavon is on this list as much as a sign of respect for what the guy did last week. He didn't back down, didn't choke. He played great. Kudos.

Mike mcclure locked in his expert one and done golf picks, projected leaderboard, and top sleepers for the travelers championship 2024 at tpc river highlands in connecticut.

The PGA Tour heads to Cromwell, Connecticut this week for the 2024 Travelers Championship. The final signature event gets underway on Thursday at TPC River Highlands. The players will be competing for a 2024 Travelers Championship purse of $20 million. The winner's payout is $3.6 million. World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler is the 4-1 betting favorite in the latest 2024 Travelers Championship odds. Other top contenders in the Travelers Championship field include Xander Schauffele (15-2), Ludvig Aberg (16-1), Collin Morikawa (16-1), Viktor Hovland (22-1), Patrick Cantlay (25-1), and Hideki Matsuyama (28-1).

With One and Done pools in the final stretch for the 2024 season, nailing your picks this week is critical. Should a $3.6 million winner's share on the line, should you target one of the favorites like Scheffler or Schauffele in your one and done picks this week? Or would it make sense to target a longshot like Matt Fitzpatrick, Max Homa, or Justin Thomas? Before locking in your 2024 Travelers Championship one and done picks,  you need to see what SportsLine DFS pro and PGA expert Mike McClure has to say . 

The One and Done format is growing in popularity. It has several noticeable similarities to NFL Survivor pools, with the main difference being entries are not eliminated with a bad week. Players pick one golfer per week and earn points based on their selected golfer's prize money for that tournament. Golfers can only be used once per season, and the point format makes nailing majors, signature events, and big money tournaments critical.

McClure is a DFS legend with over $2 million in career winnings, and he's been red-hot on his PGA picks dating back to the PGA Tour restart in June of 2020. McClure uses his proprietary simulation model to analyze the field and crush his golf picks.

McClure has been on fire with his One and Done picks in 2024. At The American Express he backed Justin Thomas, who finished in third place and took home $635,600. At the Genesis Invitational, McClure tabbed Patrick Cantlay, who finished in fourth place at the signature event, as his top OAD pick. At the Cognizant Classic, McClure's top one and done pick, Min Woo Lee, finished in a tie for second place. Finally, at the Arnold Palmer Invitation, another signature event, McClure recommended using Scottie Scheffler and Will Zalatoris. The Result: Scheffler won the event by five strokes, and Zalatoris finished in fourth place.

His hot steak continued at the Players Championship, where McClure again recommended using Scheffler (if was still available) and Xander Schauffele. Both players were in contention until the end, with Scheffler coming out with the win and Schauffele finishing in second place. Then, at the Valspar Championship, McClure listed Cameron Young, who finished in second place, as his top OAD pick.

More recently, at the CJ Cup Byron Nelson, McClure recommended using 50-1 longshot Alex Noren in One and Done pools. Noren would go on to be in contention until the end, before finishing in third place, two strokes off the lead! And at the PGA Championship, McClure targeted Viktor Hovland and Collin Morikawa, who finished in third and fourth places, respectively. He targeted Morikawa again at the Memorial Tournament, where Morikawa finished second.

Finally, at last week's U.S. Open, McClure's top two one and done picks were Bryson DeChambeau and Rory McIlroy. DeChambeau finished in first place and McIlroy in second.

Now, McClure has his sights on the 2024 Travelers Championship and just revealed his optimal One and Done picks. They are a must-see for any player looking for an edge in their One and Done pool. You can only see McClure's Travelers Championship 2024 one and done picks at SportsLine .

Top 2024 Travelers Championship One and Done picks

One of McClure's favorite OAD plays this week for the Travelers Championship is Collin Morikawa. The 27-year-old, who was recently named to the U.S. Olympic Golf Team, has been playing some of the best golf of his career as of late, with five top-10 finishes in his last eight starts. Morikawa is no stranger to finding success against elite fields and has two major championships on his career resume.

Morikawa is one of the best ball strikers in the world, and has the all around game that makes him a threat to win any tournament he enters. He is currently ranked sixth on the PGA Tour in total strokes gained (1.275), 11th in strokes gained (1.196), and 15th in strokes gained off-the-tee (0.539). McClure believes he will be in contention until the end at the Travelers Championship.  You can see who else to back at SportsLine .

How to make Travelers Championship 2024 One and Done picks

McClure is also targeting another golfer for his 2024 Travelers Championship one and done picks who has a long track record of success against elite competition. This multiple time PGA Tour winner has the ability to win any tournament he enters, and is one of the most talented golfers in this field. You can find out who it is, and check out all of McClure's Travelers Championship one and done picks at SportsLine .
