Matches
Graham DeLaet was in a difficult place this time last year when he missed the Travelers Championship as he attempted to deal with anxiety issues that centred on his short game.

However, he should take confidence from the tenth place he sealed at the Memorial in his last US Tour outing and he can get the better of fellow Canadian Adam Hadwin in this week's tournament at River Highlands.

DeLaet took five weeks off last year to deal with his problems but he had claimed fourth place in the Travelers Championship the year before and finished third at the venue two years before that.

Hadwin, meanwhile, has played in the last two Travelers Championships and missed the cut on both occasions.

He won the Valspar Championship and finished sixth at the Arnold Palmer Invitational in March, but has not finished in the top 20 in any of his seven tournaments since.

Justin Thomas tore through Erin Hills at the US Open with a 63 in the third round and although he slipped to finish ninth on a disappointing Sunday, the young star from Kentucky can still have a good week in Connecticut.

The 24-year-old finished fourth in his previous outing at the Memorial and was third at River Highlands last year, so he looks a cracking bet at 21-20 to get the better of Jason Day.

The Aussie, who has played in this tournament just once since 2008, is out of sorts and while he finished second in the Bryon Nelson Championship a month ago, he missed the cut by a street last week and that suggests there is still work to do.
