2023 Shriners Children’s Open Picks
The worry is that Schenk hasn’t played since the TOUR Championship—which was in the middle of August—and knocking off the rust, even if it’s for a round, is enough to put him too far behind in a birdfest. If that worries you; take a pass, PALLLLLLLL!!!!
If it doesn’t, you’ll get access to a player with six Top 10s in his past 11 starts, including two in the FedEx Cup playoffs against the best players on TOUR. One note, this event doesn’t have the best players on TOUR. Additionally, Schenk’s made the cut in Vegas in five of six starts, including consecutive Top-12 finishes.
