|Ryan Simpson||Webb Simpson|
This pick doesn’t come from the fact that the golfer has the same last name as our own TB News editor. Nope, instead our man behind the red pen is asking you all to strike (wager) whilst the iron is hot. Webb Simpson is that iron, having just won the RBC Heritage last Sunday. Simpson, who is leading the PGA TOUR in birdie average (4.92) and scoring average (68.662), is +2000 to win the Travelers Championship. Simpson has a total of three top 15s at the Travelers Championship, dating back to 2011.
