AT&T Byron Nelson odds, predictions and PGA Tour picks

The PGA Tour shifts to TPC Craig Ranch in McKinney, Texas, for this week’s AT&T Byron Nelson as the final tune-up ahead of next week’s PGA Championship. Below, we look at the 2021 AT&T Byron Nelson odds and make our PGA Tour picks and predictions to win.

Five of the top-nine golfers in the Golfweek/Sagarin world rankings are in attendance. The strong field is headlined by world No. 1 Jon Rahm and reigning FedExCup champ Dustin Johnson. Sung Kang is defending his 2019 Byron Nelson championship but this is the first year the tournament is being played at TPC Craig Ranch.

The venue measures 7,468 yards and plays to a par of 72. It has hosted Korn Ferry Tour events but will welcome the PGA Tour for the first time this week.

Will Zalatoris (+3000)

At No. 7 in the Golfweek rankings, Zalatoris is the third-best golfer in this field, but he has just the 10th-best odds to win. His missed cut at last week’s Wells Fargo Championship was his first in 14 PGA Tour events since the Sanderson Farms Championship in October.

It was poor putting which did in Zalatoris last week at Quail Hollow Club. He still gained strokes from tee-to-green and around-the-green over his two rounds, and he has been an above-average putter for the 2020-21 season.

As in every tournament immediately preceding a major, the motivation of the top players in the field is questionable this week. Zalatoris still needs a win in order to qualify for the FedExCup Playoffs, despite his world ranking and three top-10 finishes this year.

2021 AT&T Byron Nelson picks – Contender

Keith Mitchell (+8000)

The value’s still right for Mitchell coming off his T-3 finish at Quail Hollow last week. He held the 54-hole lead and was in the final pairing with Rory McIlroy. He fell two strokes shy of victory with a Sunday round of plus-1, 72.

Mitchell was second in the field with 1.85 Strokes Gained: Off-the-Tee and sixth with 2.32 SG: Tee-to-Green per round last week. TPC Craig Ranch is of similar length, and those two parts of his game will transfer well.

2021 AT&T Byron Nelson picks – Long shot

Sung Kang (+50000)

Kang’s 2019 Byron Nelson win should be ignored as it was at a different venue and against a considerably weaker field. He’s still well worth a long-shot bet, as he is a member of TPC Craig Ranch and will have an edge over most of the field in the venue’s PGA Tour debut.

Kang missed the cut in eight of his 12 events to begin 2021, but he tied for second in last year’s Genesis Invitational and finished T-9 at the 2020 Arnold Palmer Invitational. Both results were in strong fields and at long courses.

New to sports betting? A $10 bet on Kang to win would return a profit of $5,000. The same wager on Zalatoris would net a return of $300.

New book by veteran photographer celebrates the dashing life of Seve Ballesteros

David Cannon brought together top players, writers and photographers to compile a visual tribute to Seve Ballesteros.

New book by veteran photographer celebrates the dashing life of Seve Ballesteros

Photographer David Cannon has witnessed many of the best moments in championship golf over the past several decades, and his photos have earned their places on countless magazine covers and websites.

Many of his favorite memories came via Seve Ballesteros, the charismatic Spaniard who transformed the Ryder Cup and won five major championships before dying in 2011 at age 54 as a result of brain cancer. Cannon’s photos of Ballesteros ranged from candid behind-the-scenes shots to major moments to at-home feature shots (such as the one atop this story).

To commemorate Ballesteros’ life and his dramatic impacts on the game of golf, particularly in Europe, Cannon has compiled a photo-driven book titled, ‘Seve: His Life through the Lens,’ that was released in early May to coincide with the 10-year anniversary of Ballesteros’ death.

“This book would not have been possible without the support of many incredible people,” Cannon, who shoots for Getty Images, said in media release introducing the book. “Seve was a true global icon and I’ve seen him and photographed him in many parts of the world, but it’s the friends I’ve made along the way who have contributed images to this book I’ve never seen before and that is what makes it so special. I hope the Seve fans around the world enjoy the book as much as I did putting it together.”

The book features a thank-you letter by Ballesteros’ son, Javier, and each chapter starts with a story by writer Robert Green, who has penned two books about the Spaniard. There are also “Moment in Time” stories by Cannon, in which he reveals the back stories of select photos.

Also included are stories by Ballesteros’ contemporaries such as José Maria Olazábal and Nick Faldo.

“I am looking at two special pictures and thinking about one very special friend,” Olazábal wrote. “I remember it clearly (Pedreña 1984) as it was the first time I ever met Seve. I was just 18 and so of course was in awe of ‘Seve the player’ – the four-time Major champion – but the strongest impression I gained from that day was of his presence and warmth as a person.”

Not all the photos presented are Cannon’s. He instead included shots from many photographers to best present the visual story. Ballesteros’ former caddie, Billy Foster, sees the book as a fitting tribute to “the last of the great shotmakers and the ultimate warrior, the pied piper who captivated crowds with his magical short game that was second to none.”

The book, supported by the R&A and the European Tour, was published by Vision Sports Publishing and is available for £35 (about $49) at www.sevethebook.com. There is also a special limited-edition boxed version for £95 that includes a numbered art print of the front cover image of Ballesteros winning the British Open at St Andrews, signed by Cannon.
