2022 Mexico Open Picks
It’s an absolute crapshoot after Jon Rahm. Except maybe Woodland, who is the only player in the field who rates out better than the Spaniard over the past 24 rounds when you combine driving distance and approach play.
The biggest comp course, I think, is Coco Beach for the Puerto Rico Open: Similar length, lack of rough, same grass type. Clark is one of a handful of players in the field gaining over 2.0 strokes per round (total) at Coco Beach, albeit in a small sample. He actually has a T10 and T22 in his two alternate field events over the past three years. He rates out second in the field in driving distance over the past 24 rounds and enters play in solid form after an early season lull. Starting with a T22 at Corales, Clark has gone T71/T35 before a T10 in the team event last week
