Joaquin Niemann (+4000)
Niemann, the 21-year-old pro from Chile, did not waste much time to get everybody’s attention this season when he won the A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier back in September 2019. He’s not won again since, but he’s just coming off a T5 at the RBC Heritage. Speaking of which, Niemann also had a T5 last year at the 2019 Travelers Championship. He is 18th this season in greens in regulation percentage (71.01%).
Viktor Hovland (+5000)
The TPC River Highlands is a special place for Hovland, who made his professional debut there last year during the 2019 edition of this same tournament. Hovland finished with just a T54 then, but with more experience as a pro, he should improve on that performance significantly. Hovland finished with a T21 at the RBC Heritage last week and had a T23 a week prior to that at the Charles Schwab Challenge. His best finish this season was a win at the Puerto Rico Open back in February. He has two top 10s and four top 25s in 11 starts this season. Hovland is also sixth in eagles (holes per) with 76.0.
Ryan Palmer (+10000)
Palmer made a good account of himself over the weekend, finishing with a T8 at the RBC Heritage after missing the cut at the Charles Schwab Challenge. Palmer has not won this season but has put himself in some respectable positions to get one in a number of events. Palmer has three top 10s and seven top 25s in 11 starts. His best finish was a T4 at the Sony Open in Hawaii.
