22 of the top 25 golfers in the world are set to descend upon the TPC Scottsdale Stadium Course this week for the 2023 WM Phoenix Open. The event will serve as a lead in to Super Bowl 57, which kicks off hours after the tournament's final round. The WM Phoenix Open field will be playing for an elevated purse with Scottie Scheffler playing as the defending champion. World No. 1 Rory McIlroy is the betting favorite at 8-1 in the latest WM Phoenix Open odds from Caesars Sportsbook. Other top contenders in the WM Phoenix Open field include Jon Rahm (17-2), Xander Schauffele (14-1), Scottie Scheffler (15-1), Tony Finau (18-1) and Collin Morikawa (18-1). The total tournament purse for this elevated event is $20 million, with $3.6 million going to the winner, making it imperative that you nail your one and done golf picks this week.
As the top ranked player in the world, McIlroy will likely be a very popular PGA one and done pick this week. Is the four-time major champion a must-play? Or would it make more sense to go with another high upside option like Justin Thomas (21-1), Max Homa (21-1), or Hideki Matsuyama (28-1)? Before locking in your 2023 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am one and done picks, you need to see what SportsLine DFS pro and PGA expert Mike McClure has to say.
The One and Done format is growing in popularity. It has several noticeable similarities to NFL Survivor pools, with the main difference being entries are not eliminated with a bad week. Players pick one golfer per week and earn points based on their selected golfer's prize money for that tournament. Golfers can only be used once per season, and the point format makes nailing majors and big money tournaments critical.
McClure is a DFS legend with nearly $2 million in career winnings, and he's been red-hoton his PGA picks dating back to the PGA Tour restart in June of 2020. McClure uses his proprietary simulation model to analyze the field and crush his golf picks.
McClure's model predicted Jon Rahm to finish on top of the leaderboard at the 2023 Sentry Tournament of Champions and The American Express. The model also included J.T. Poston in its best bets to win the 2022 John Deere Classic. That bet hit at +5500, and for the entire tournament, McClure's best bets returned almost $1,100. This same model has also nailed a whopping eight majors entering the weekend! Anyone who has followed it has seen massive returns.
At the Sentry Tournament of Champions, McClure listed 75-1 long shot Luke List as his top One and Done pick. The result: List shot 20 under to finish in 11th place, taking home $292,500. At the Farmers Insurance Open, McClure's top One and Done pick, Max Homa, outlasted the entire field to take home his sixth career PGA Tour victory and $1.566 million. And last week at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, McClure was backing Taylor Pendrith in One and Done pools, and the 48-1 longshot delivered, notching a 7th place finish, taking home $271,100.
Now, McClure has dialed in on the 2023 WM Phoenix Open golf tournament, and just locked in his one and done picks and PGA predictions. You can only see McClure's WM Phoenix Open one and done picks at SportsLine.
Top 2023 WM Phoenix Open One and Done picks
One of McClure's top one and done picks this week at the WM Phoenix Open is Tony Finau. The five-time PGA Tour winner comes in at 18-1 to win the tournament, but McClure believes he has been undervalued for most of his career and should be considered one of the top contenders to win this week. Finau, the No. 13 ranked player in the world, proved that he could win on the PGA Tour and is coming off a ninth place finished at the Farmers Insurance Open.
Finau has been on a tear dating back to last fall, notching four top-10's in his last five starts including a win at the Cadence Bank Houston Open in November. The 33-year-old ranks 2nd on the PGA Tour in total strokes gained (2.923), 5th in strokes gained tee-to-green (1.930), 8th in strokes gained putting (0.993), and 9th in strokes gained on approach (1.040). With the intriguing mix of talent in the WM Phoenix Open field, it's very possible that Finau will fly under the radar in one and done pools this week offering huge value.
