2024 The Sentry Picks


Collin Morikawa ($9,100)

Last year, Collin Morikawa was kind enough to stick a giant wad of cash in my pocket Saturday night. I didn’t realize it was attached to a fishing line, and he yanked it back Sunday afternoon and laughed as I chased it down the street. With a six stroke lead entering the final round, Morikawa imploded on the back nine and allowed a scorching Jon Rahm to not only catch up but win by three. Morikawa sets up exactly the same this year: Great wedges and 200+ proximity, better putter on slower greens. Except now there’s no Rahm to ruin the party. It’s time for Collin to get us our money back.
