Abraham Ancer is one player you should have on your card this week at the American Express Desert Classic in southern California. At +2800, Ancer is just too good of a value to ignore at that price. Ancer’s game has improved immensely, and he came close to winning a tournament on a few occasions last year: He finished second at the RBC Heritage and was also runner-up at the Desert Classic.
This tournament utilizes a course rotation, and this year, it will be played at the PGA West (Stadium) course. And with this being more of a resort course, we can expect to see some scores around 65 hit the board. This is the epitome of casual, west-coast golf, which really suits Ancer’s game because the greens won’t be as difficult as other courses.
You won’t find a better time to buy a player while they’re on the way up. If it helps, think of Ancer almost like a momentum stock as he’s a player who’s been climbing up the (OWGR) Official World Golf Rankings. Ancer has gone from being ranked 267th in the OWGR at the end of 2017 to 56th in 2018, 38th in 2019, and 23rd at the end of 2020.
This should be the year that he picks up his first PGA Tour win, and he’ll have a great chance to do that in La Qunita at the American Express Desert Classic.
