Golf Tips

Young could finally break his duck

One player who should take advantage of the opportunity to play again this week is Cameron Young, who will view his return to Detroit Golf Club as a great opportunity to finally earn his first PGA Tour victory.

The American only found Tony Finau too good for him in this room in 2022 and it was one of seven occasions on tour, including that year’s Open Championship, where he had to settle for from second place.

However, Young should be absolutely brimming with confidence for this trip after a strong weekend at the Travelers Championship where he catapulted up the leaderboard to tie for ninth.

He got off to a slow start, but there was nothing ordinary about the 59 he posted in Saturday’s third round and there was also plenty to like about a 66 on Sunday.

So while others will be grateful for the rest, he should be tasked with going again and this could be the week he finally enters the winner’s circle.

Strong putting can help Pendrith

Taylor Pendrith was also second to Finau two years ago and his recent performances have been strong enough to suggest he could take a step forward in the absence of the top stars.

The Canadian won the CJ Byron Nelson Cup in May and was the fifth-best putter on the PGA Tour this year, which should bode well on another course where scores are expected to be low this week.

His recent form numbers of 10-MC-21-33-16-23 should encourage him to be able to make his mark in this type of business.

Bhatia can take on the challenge

Akshay Bhatia is one of the rising stars on the PGA Tour who has already enjoyed success at the Texas Open this year, and the 22-year-old has hit a fine run of form.

The youngster missed the cut on his debut here last year but has developed immensely since and should be encouraged by finishing 22nd at the Memorial, 16th at the US Open and fifth at the Travelers last week.
