Top Picks for the 2020 Puerto Rico Open

The Puerto Rico Open is the second alternate event of the 2019-20 PGA Tour season.

It will be held simultaneously with the WGC Championship Mexico.

With the World Championship event drawing in the top players, Puerto Rico will naturally have a much weaker field.

Alternate events are notoriously difficult to predict, as the field is usually quite close.

It’s not unusual for the event to have a first-time PGA Tour winner.

1. Scott Brown

The veteran is one of the most experienced contenders in this year’s field.

Brown won the Puerto Rico Open title in 2013, which remains his only PGA Tour victory.

He is coming off a very impressive showing at the Genesis Invitational, which saw him score a surprising T2 finish by two strokes.

Brown had missed the cut in his previous four events this year.

The American has a very solid Puerto Rico Open record, having only missed out on the top 10 twice in seven appearances.

Brown scored a T10 finish in last year’s edition.

2. Ian Poulter

The veteran narrowly missed out on a WGC Mexico spot and will play in Puerto Rico as a result.

Poulter has three PGA Tour wins to his name, including two WGC trophies, and 12 European Tour victories.

It will be the Englishman’s first PGA Tour appearance of 2020.

Poulter has played in three events this 2019-20 season, finishing all of them inside the top 25.

He has made two Puerto Rico Open appearances, with the best result of T3 in 2016.

Considering his experience and career record, Poulter is a relatively safe pick in a wide-open field, while also bringing some good value.

3. Chesson Hadley

Another Puerto Rico Open winner, Hadley has been one of the best-performing players in this year’s field.

The American made the cut in seven of his ten appearances this season, with a respectable three top 25 results.

Hadley’s most recent event was the Pebble Beach Pro-Am, which saw him score a season-high T18 finish.

While the 2014 Puerto Rico Open title remains his only PGA Tour win, the Hadley is coming off a very good year.

He scored a T9 result at the US Open, a career-best in a major tournament.

4. Viktor Hovland

This is arguably Hovland’s best chance to score his first career PGA Tour win.

The young Norwegian has made the cut in four of his six appearances this season, with a T10 at the Greenbrier classic as his best result.

After some stellar performances as an amateur in 2019, Hovland has struggled to produce the same results in 2020.

However, going up against a significantly weaker field should raise his chances of getting a good result this week.
