Taylor Pendrith is 120th in the World Golf Ranking. He comes off three forgettable outings, all over par, finishing 70th at the Corales Puntacana Championship, 69th in THE PLAYERS, and 101st at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. The Oaks course in San Antonio puts a premium on driving and keeping the ball in play because of the rocky terrain and tough rough. Pendrith is 68th in Total Driving and 151st in Driving Accuracy Percentage. The greens are some of the most difficult to hit on the PGA Tour and Pendrith ranks 159th in Strokes Gained Around-the-Green, plus 93rd in Total Putting. By contrast, Nick Taylor is 67th in the World Golf Ranking. He's in good form, fresh off a 10th-place finish at the Valspar Championship. In his last eight outings, he's had four Top 20 finishes, including seventh at the Sony Open. Taylor is 19th in Strokes Gained and Around-the-Green, 112th in Driving Accuracy Percentage, and 56th in Total Putting. Taylor is very familiar with the intricacies of this course, such as the unpredictable Texas wind, while playing in four straight Texas Opens, including finishing 52nd in 2019 and 59th in 2021 (even-par both times). Play Nick Taylor to win this head-to-head matchup.
