Let’s check the latest news, stats, injury reports, and Golf odds for AT&T Byron Nelson. We’ve plenty of predictions for you to consider.

Have a Gander at Schauffele

Xander Schauffele won the Zurich Classic at New Orleans with Patrick Cantlay, but he hasn’t won a solo PGA Tour event since 2019.

The American is a five-time PGA Tour winner, and despite winning the gold medal at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, he’s overdue a solo tournament win.

The 28-year-old is growing in confidence, and although he’s targeting the bigger tournaments, winning the Byron Nelson would see his confidence levels boost considerably.

Golf betting markets have Schauffele on the sixth line of betting at +2000, which is a fair price for one of the world’s best golfers.

He has a wealth of experience at this level of golf and TPC Craig Ranch should play right into his strengths.

We wouldn’t be leaving the extremely consistent golfer off our betting tickets for the AT&T Byron Nelson.

Pick: Schauffele +2000

Scheffler Gets Tick of Approval

It’s no secret that Scottie Scheffler is the hottest golfer in the world following his win at the Masters.

The rising star is the top-ranked golfer and his form this season is unrivaled, which is why he’s the current +1000 favorite to win.

He played a practice round alongside Ryan Palmer and Scheffler’s practice round caddy Cameron Chhim could see why he’s the best in the world.

““He played one ball the entire time, no practice putts, and made it look easy,” The Golf Channel reported. “He’s No. 1 in the world and it was pretty easy to see why. It would be hard to say that he’s not going to win or at least be in contention. He hits it far enough and he has incredible distance control with his irons. Ryan shot 2 or 3 under and looked like he was standing still based on how Scottie was playing.”

Despite Scheffler’s golf bet odds being on the short side, he’s worth including. His confidence levels are sky high and confident golfers are tough to beat.

Pick: Scheffler +1000

Books Respecting Brooks

Brooks Koepka has always targeted major golf tournaments, but he shouldn’t be overlooked this week.

The eight-time PGA Tour winner, including four-time major winner, has history at the AT&T Byron Nelson when losing in a playoff to Sergio Garcia in 2016.

Koepka won the 2021 Phoenix Open, and although his recent form has been plagued by injuries, he’s a top-class player.

He even has backing from an unusual source. Canelo Alvarez is in the corner of the pro golfer after he received negative press coverage following a cancelled charity match.

“I like him. Mentally, he’s everything, and he’s strong,” Alvarez said.

The bookmakers are also backing Koepka, who is +2800 to win. We’re happy to take those odds, because when Koepka is on his game, not many can keep up with him.

Pick: Koepka +2800
