5 months agoTroy Merritt will be making his first start since a missed cut at the Sony Open in early January. While absences are very rarely a positive thing, Merritt's was scarier than most. The 33-year-old had to have his top-left rib removed after being diagnosed with Thoracic outlet syndrome, a condition that ultimately led to a blood clot in his arm last year. Before his missed cut in Hawaii, the 196th-ranked player in the world had produced six straight made cuts to go along with a victory at the Barbasol Championship earlier in the season. It is tough to tell how Merritt is going to perform in his first event back after undergoing such a potentially life-threatening scare, but he has shown great ability to maneuver around the greens and was one of the better par-five scorers on the season before his surgery. Merritt's odds are correct given all the uncertainty surrounding him, but his game does warrant heavy consideration at a price tag of $6,100 on DraftKings and 400/1 outright price. Merritt is projected to be around 0.5 percent owned and would make for a great story if he could deliver a run at the title this weekend. --Spencer Aguiar - RotoBaller
