Two players to return to the top 40 markets
The latest PGA major of the year is here, the Open Championships in St. Andrews. The Royal and Ancient Golf Club, also known as the “Home of Golf,” is a par-72 that stretches over just over 7,300 yards. Depending on wind conditions, the yardage can vary.
With only two triples and two fives, piles covered with jagged bunkers, dunes, ripples, huge vegetables and blind spots, I’m looking for an overall solid player. No single style of play can win here, so I’m also looking forward to the latter form and success in strong field events.
These are two players worth considering finishing in the top 40.

In the last 20 innings, Tringale was a top 20 hitter in total hits and in four points, which is significant since there were only two out of three draws and two out of five. Knowing how to handle the triple becomes crucial since there are so few of it, and it’s also a top 20 in the triple. After crashing out of T6 at last week’s Scottish Open, Tringale gained hits in every category except off the tee.
His accuracy can be a mess but this course is not very punishing with very wide lanes. Although there are plenty of bunkers and other challenges, Tringale has gained more than three hits in successive events with his iron play. Although his trajectory differed, he finished 26th at last year’s Open, and finished 14th at this year’s US Open. Modern iron that’s solid, neutral about green, and able to put – all the pluses for a Top 40 finish.

For a couple of events, Bauer had trouble hitting the ball. He cleaned that up despite taking hits in four straight events. Now, his problem area is the short game. The power stayed relatively neutral around the green and gained hits in four of his last seven events, contributing to his 12th singles place at the US Open and ninth singles place at the PGA Championship.
In tournaments where the field is strong, Power has finished T33 or better in his last four matches, including a single 27th place finish in the Masters. He hit the power ball out there and he has shown that his short game can be too. His consistency in tough court tournaments is what made me love his top 40 odds.
