2023 Barbasol Championship preview

The Barbasol Championship is back in its typical post-US Open slot, with the event featuring 12 of the world top 50, including a few surprising entries. Tony Finau defends here, in an event that has produced total shock winners and some very obvious ones.

TPC Deere Run is not a course for bombers, really. It's a course for precise iron players who keep it out of trouble off the tee. Make a ton of putts and win.

2023 Barbasol Championship rankings: Top 10 expert picks

1. Lucas Glover: Glover had a good run in the Quad Cities last week, and he's been on a nice run in events he fancies. Why not play well against weaker competition again this week?

2. Taylor Pendrith: Pendrith's monster length should be an asset on a 7,400-yard golf course, and he showed that last time out in Detroit with a good finish.

3. Kevin Streelman: Streelman was runner-up here last year, but he's been playing kinda OK of late, so it's not an easy call.

4. Peter Kuest: Kuest has been on a minor heater, and he's been able to parlay that into some opportunities at the right time of year.

5. Andrew Novak: Novak has flown under my radar a bit for fantasy and betting, but he's missed just one cut since the end of March.

6. Josh Teater: Teater has been playing most of his golf on the Korn Ferry this year, but the Kentucky native has been playing well.

7. Grayson Murray: We have to acknowledge Murray here, as he's won on the KFT, had another T-3 there and then was T-6 last week.

8. Jazz Janewattananond: Jazz has been enjoying a decent year, and he's played really well on the Asian Tour and in spots on the DP World Tour.

9. Justin Lower: Lower is the kind of player you have to catch quickly, and he was T-8 at the Rocket Mortgage, so jump in now.

10. Troy Merritt: Merritt has played terribly all year long. He's been battling the putting yips. But he's starting to claw his way out of it and been showing out pretty well.
