Wesley Bryan (+4,000)
One golfer who can definitely make a run at the Arnold Palmer crown this week is Wesley Bryan. The South Carolina native has been on fire of late, grabbing top-7 finishes in each of his last three starts. He finished tied for fourth at the Genesis Open and the Honda Classic last month before producing a seventh-place showing at last week’s Valspar Championship. Key to Bryan’s resurgence has been his outstanding play from tee to green. He is 40th in the PGA Tour in strokes gained in that particular department with an impressive .733 clip. That will be a major weapon for Bryan when dealing with this difficult Bay Hill course.
Tommy Fleetwood (+4,000)
If there’s one golfer primed for a breakthrough victory at the Arnold Palmer Invitational this week, it’s got to be Tommy Fleetwood. He was sensational in his season debut south of the border, finishing solo second at the WGC-Mexico Championship. Fleetwood was tied for fifth in the GIR department and second in scrambling that week.
Kevin Chappell (+7,000)
Looking for a worthy sleeper this week? How about Kevin Chappell? He came oh so close to capturing his first PGA Tour title last year in this event, finishing one stroke shy of eventual champion Jason Day. He shot 60s in all four of his API rounds last year to post a 16-under-par total of 272. What makes Chappell such a threat in every golf tournament that he competes in is his length off the tee. He is 43rd in the PGA Tour in driving distance, averaging 298.9 yards per drive this season. That powerful swing will come in handy for Chappell when tackling the tough 7,419-yard, par-72 Bay Hill course.
