Most of the elite players are taking the week off, leaving the door open for some of the PGA Tour's top young golfers to shine at the 2021 Honda Classic at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. 

This week's field features defending champion Sungjae Im (12-1 at William Hill Soportsbook) and Lee Westwood (20-1), who has been the runner-up in consecutive events. Other notable names in the 2021 Honda Classic field include Joaquin Niemann (20-1), Adam Scott (25-1) and Rickie Fowler (45-1).  

Before setting your Fantasy golf lineups or betting the 2021 Honda Classic, you MUST see data scientist Rick Gehman's power rankings.

With his expansive database of golf statistics, course data and betting odds, Gehman creates advanced models and back-tests them constantly. These models have produced 12 outright winners in the past year -- including 30-1 Webb Simpson at the 2020 RBC Heritage.

At The Players, three of Gehman's top seven picks made the top 10, including winner Justin Thomas, who came in at 22-1. "He feels close to breaking through again, and TPC Sawgrass just might be the place," Gehman said before the event.

The result? Thomas went out and shot 14 under par, going 4 under in the final round, to get his first tour victory since August.

Gehman has been on fire all season! At the Palmer Invitational the previous week, five of the golf expert's top 10 picks finished T-10 or better, and at Pebble Beach, three of his top four picks finished in the top five! 

The Farmers leaderboard looked like a who's who of Gehman's rankings, with five of his top nine picks finishing tied for seventh or better, and at the Sony, the top three in his rankings all finished in the top seven! Anyone who has followed his advice has cashed in HUGE!

Now, Gehman has ranked his top 30 players for the 2021 Honda Classic. We can tell you he's fading Fowler, who barely cracks the top 30! The veteran has the name recognition, but his game has been in complete disarray. He has five career tour victories and oddsmakers are giving him some benefit by listing him at 45-1, but his T-20 at the Genesis is the only time he has sniffed the first page of the leaderboard in months. He might find his way, but it isn't likely to be this week, so Gehman suggests you stay far away! 

Instead, Gehman is looking for a relatively unknown player and MASSIVE long shot to make a run at his first title! This golfer has been hanging around near the top of leader boards for weeks and has shined on the big stage. You ABSOLUTELY need to see who it is before betting this tournament or entering any Fantasy golf lineups.
