Make the Cut Parlay
While there’s plenty of reasons to be down on McNealy this week, there are a handful of golfers we want to target for our make the cut parlay, while trying to be price sensitive.

We’ll pair him with both Justin Rose and Tommy Fleetwood, who are each playing better than they have in quite some time. Rose is top-five in the field over the past 24 rounds in iron play and scoring, while Fleetwood is top-10 in ball striking, short game, iron play and scoring over the same stretch.
No Canadian Open make the cut parlay is complete without a Canuck involved, and Nick Taylor seems like the best bang for your buck. He’s made three straight cuts at this event, and ranks top-20 in the field in scoring. He trunk slammed in his last start, but it was all putting related. His ball striking was positive, and with four top-10 finishes already on his 2022-23 resume, including a runner-up at an elevated event, he’s on pace for the best season of his career.
Pick: Make the Cut Parlay (+185)
