The PGA Tour travels to Florida this week for the 2021 World Golf Championships- Workday Championship at The Concession. Read on below to see my prediction for who will win the tournament, as well as my top 10, dark horse, and player to fade predictions.
Winner: Viktor Hovland- Hovland has been playing some terrific golf as of late, with 6 top 15 finishes in his last 7 worldwide starts, including a win at the OHL Classic and 3 additional top 5 results during that span. Both of Hovland’s PGA Tour wins have come in events with weaker fields, but with the way he’s been playing of late, he’s ready to snag a win on one of the biggest stages and against one of the strongest fields in golf.
Top 10: Patrick Cantlay- Cantlay has also been playing stellar golf of late, finishing in the top 20 in each of his last 6 starts, including a win at the Zozo Championship, a runner up finish at the American Express, and a T-3 at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Cantlay plays well in a strong field and with a field as strong as this, I expect Cantlay to be a lock for a top 10 finish.
Dark horse: Rasmus Højgaard- Højgaard is a name you’re likely unfamiliar with here in the United States, but if you follow the European Tour, you know this guy can play. Højgaard is coming off back-to-back top 10 finishes on the European Tour, including a T-6 at the Saudi International powered by SoftBank Investment Advisers, where he shot a blistering 63 in the final round. I expect Højgaard to build on his momentum from the European Tour and carry that over to America this week. I believe a top 25 result is certainly within reach for Højgaard.
Player to fade: Harris English- English has been cold lately, going T-32, MC, MC, since his win at the Tournament of Champions. English is a great player, but in a field as strong as this, he will likely struggle. I expect him to finish somewhere in the middle 1/3 of the field this week at best.
