2021 AT&T Byron Nelson: Fantasy Golf Top 20

Odds provided by BetMGM; access USA TODAY Sports’ betting odds for a full list. Odds last updated Tuesday at 6:30 a.m. ET.

20. Lee Westwood (+8000)

The veteran Englishman has been off since a 63rd-place finish at the RBC Heritage capped a four-event stretch which included missed cuts at The Honda Classic and the Masters. He previously had back-to-back runner-up finishes at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players Championship to climb as high as No. 19 in the Official World Golf Ranking (OWGR).

19. James Hahn (+12500)

Few in this week’s field have the experience of Hahn at TPC Craig Ranch. He finished as the runner-up at the 2012 Web.com Tour Championship played here. His victory at the 2016 Wells Fargo Championship was at a similarly long course (Quail Hollow Club).

18. Keith Mitchell (+8000)

Mitchell remains a quality value play coming off a T-3 finish at last week’s Wells Fargo Championship. He was second in the field with 1.85 Strokes Gained: Off-the-Tee per round and will need to rely on that same part of his game this week.

17. Cameron Champ (+8000)

Sixth on the PGA Tour among qualified golfers and fourth in this field in SG: Off-the-Tee through 32 measured rounds this season. His putting has been awful, but the new venue should help level the field on the greens.

16. Luke List (+7000)

Tied for sixth last week with 1.33 SG: Off-the-Tee and 1.77 SG: Tee-to-Green per round. He tied for 13th at the 2012 Web.com Tour Championship.

15. Harris English (+6000)

Rose as high as No. 16 in the OWGR earlier this year but has struggled since returning to the mainland after the two events in Hawaii. He tied for 43rd last week with 1.04 SG: Putting but 0.75 strokes lost off-the-tee per round.

14. Sam Burns (+3500)

Returns to play after a week off following his first career PGA Tour victory at the Valspar Championship. It’s another venue that should suit his long irons well.

13. Matt Fitzpatrick (+1800)

Still in search of his first PGA Tour win after a T-4 finish at the RBC Heritage. He has gained an average of 2.13 strokes per round on the average Tour pro over his last 20 rounds, according to Data Golf.

12. Si Woo Kim (+4000)

Looking for his sixth straight made cut since a rough stretch of play following his win at The American Express. He’s eighth on Tour in Par 4 Efficiency: 450-500 Yards and there are five such holes at TPC Craig Ranch.

11. Brooks Koepka (+2000)

Playing his first event since a missed cut at the Masters following knee surgery. The two-time PGA Championship winner is a risky play this week as he tunes his game to Kiawah Island.

10. Jordan Spieth (+1000)

Hasn’t played since a T-3 finish at the Masters on the heels of his resurgent win at the Valero Texas Open. He seems to always play well in Texas, but he’ll need his driver this week and that has been his greatest weakness this season.

9. Sergio Garcia (+4500)

Still second on Tour among qualified golfers in SG: Off-the-Tee per round. Like Champ, he’ll hope everyone’s lack of familiarity at the venue helps negate his woeful putting.

8. Hideki Matsuyama (+2000)

The 2021 Masters champ will play his first event since donning the green jacket, as he prepares for 2021’s second major. He’ll look to again rely on his excellent iron play.

7. Ryan Palmer (+4000)

Twenty-fourth on Tour in par 4 efficiency from our chosen distance and tied for 11th in Birdie or Better Percentage.

6. Marc Leishman (+3300)

Playing his first solo event since a T-5 finish at Augusta National Golf Club, but he won the Zurich Classic of New Orleans partner event with fellow Aussie Cameron Smith in the interim. He’s averaging 0.44 SG: Approach per round on the season.

5. Will Zalatoris (+2500)

Likely to be one of the most motivated of the top names in the field ahead of the PGA Championship, as he still needs a PGA Tour win in order to qualify for this year’s FedExCup Playoffs despite beginning the week 10th in the Golfweek rankings.

4. Daniel Berger (+1400)

The third-best player in the field by the Golfweek rankings tees it up for the first time since a T-13 finish at the RBC Heritage. One of the leaders in this field with 0.69 SG: Approach per round.

3. Jon Rahm (+700)

The top player in this field by both the Golfweek and OWGR measures following Monday’s withdrawal by Dustin Johnson. He looks to shake off a missed cut last week when he lost 1.36 strokes per round around the green.

2. Bryson DeChambeau (+800)

Barely made the cut last week but finished 68-68 to tie for ninth. He struggled mightily on approach to the green at Quail Hollow Club, but it’s another venue well-suited to his added distance.

1. Scottie Scheffler (+2000)

An excellent value play this week while sharing just the seventh-best odds to win. He’s seventh on Tour in par 4 efficiency and 16th in birdie or better percentage.

TaylorMade Golf sold to South Korean investment company Centroid

Final price was not announced, but reports in February stated a $2 billion asking price for the California-based club maker.

TaylorMade Golf sold to South Korean investment company Centroid

TaylorMade Golf again has changed hands, with KPS Capital Partners striking a definitive agreement through an affiliate to sell the club maker to South Korean-based private equity firm Centroid Investment Partners.

Financial terms were not disclosed, but the New York Times reported in February that KPS Capital Partners had pitched an asking price of $2 billion.

Centroid was established in 2015 and has focused on several strategic buyouts in Korea, including the purchase of South Springs Country Club. Centroid’s other buyouts have included Kolon Advance Fiber and Woongjin Booxen, a book distributor.

KPS bought TaylorMade – established in 1979 – from Adidas in 2017 for $425 million. TaylorMade since benefitted from last year’s boom in golf participation, particularly in the United States where demand for new clubs and gear spiked. Golf Datatech reported that retail sales of golf equipment produced $2.81 billion in revenue in 2020, which was a 10.1-percent increase over 2019. It gave 2020 the third-highest annual total since Golf Datatech began tracking the industry, trailing only $2.91 billion in 2008 and $2.87 billion in 2007.

“TaylorMade Golf is a transformational investment for Centroid,” Jinhyeok Jeong, founder and CEO of Centroid Investment Partners, said in the media release announcing the sale. “We are very excited to have the opportunity to invest in a global leader in golf. The industry is currently experiencing high demand, increased participation with strong long-term opportunities around the world. TaylorMade is an iconic brand with continued momentum across the key golf equipment categories and regions, especially the Korean and wider Asian markets. We are equally excited to work with (TaylorMade) CEO David Abeles and his exceptional senior management team to support continued growth and success.”

TaylorMade said in a release that it has experienced the highest growth within the industry in key products and total market since that 2017 sale made it an independent gear-focused company. TaylorMade – which is based in Carlsbad, California – also benefits from a PGA Tour staff of players promoting the brand that includes Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods and several other top players

The roster of top players includes several on the LPGA, which is extremely popular in South Korea, the home of Centroid.

David Abeles, TaylorMade CEO

“This transaction is a very important milestone as we continue to build upon our brand’s momentum around the world,” Abeles said in the media release. “Not surprisingly, the sale process for TaylorMade generated tremendous interest from a wide range of prospective buyers and resulted in an agreement that reflects the outstanding performance of our business today, as well as the outlook for the future.

“Our partnership with KPS has been extraordinary. It has been inspiring and incredibly productive to work with the team across the firm. From the beginning, KPS had the vision to recognize the strength and potential of the TaylorMade brand and business. … At the same time, we are equally excited about our new partnership with Centroid and believe that it will enable our outstanding team to continue to build on the strategies that have driven TaylorMade’s success.”
