The Open Championship at Royal Liverpool Golf Club has some new looks to it. Sand areas have been added alongside well-placed deep bunkers around the greens. This puts a premium on placement to avoid hazards. Justin Thomas is 75th in the FedEx Cup and 20th in the World Golf Rankings, finishing 60th, 135th, 152nd, 80th, and 65th in five of his last six outings. He's 74th in Total Driving, 43rd in Total Strokes Gained, 34th in Strokes Gained Approach the Green, and 152nd in Strokes Gained Putting, plus 156th in Total Putting. By contrast, Max Homa is fourth in the FedEx Cup and eighth in the World Golf Rankings after impressive showings at the Scottish Open (12th) and the Rocket Mortgage Classis (21st). He's 27th in Total Driving, ninth in Total Strokes Gained, 12th in Strokes Gained Approach the Green, 17th in Strokes Gained Tee-to-Green, and 11th in Strokes Gained Putting. And for these firm greens, Homa is 10th in Total Putting. Play Max Homa to win this head-to-head matchup as a Max Play.
