Last Week’s One And Done Pick Results

  • A favorite finally won, as Scottie Scheffler turned in a dominant Sunday at the Arnold Palmer Invitational to claim the $4 million prize.
  • Scheffler was picked by around 10% of One And Done entries last week.
  • Scheffler was graded as one of our top five picks of the week, with the primary reason for him not being first being the potential to use him in a different big prize purse event.
  • Most of the rest of the top finishers were not popular picks, with Wyndham Clark (2nd place) and Shane Lowry (3rd place) often having pick rates below 1% in One And Done pools.
  • Rory McIlroy was the most popular pick overall (often above 15% popularity) and our top-rated pick, but he had another uneven week and finished tied for 21st.
  • A lot of other top players failed or put up mediocre performances. Among the leaders in pre-tournament win odds, Collin Morikawa, Tommy Fleetwood, and Matthew Fitzpatrick all missed the cut, while Viktor Hovland and Patrick Cantlay finished outside the top 30.
