Grayson Murray is hoping his surprisingly hot putter can keep him on the PGA Tour

  Grayson Murray is hoping his surprisingly hot putter can keep him on the PGA Tour For Grayson Murray to keep getting starts on the PGA Tour, he knew heading into the Puerto Rico Open that his putter needed to get cooking. Murray can hit the ball, but putting has long been his bugaboo — he was 189th in Strokes Gained: Putting last season and…Murray can hit the ball, but putting has long been his bugaboo — he was 189th in Strokes Gained: Putting last season and has dropped to 230th through the early portion of the current campaign.

In Puerto Rico, there are no single-digit, Dustin Johnson-like favorites, but there is a clear solo favorite - Belgium's Thomas Pieters, who has opened at 14-1 to claim his first PGA Tour victory. The four-time European Tour winner and European Ryder Cup folk hero figured to be a staple at the WGCs when he first burst on to the scene, but a few lean seasons saw him fall out of the OWGR top 100. He's since fought back to 74th, and he's looking to get back to the form that helped him rise to as high as 23rd in the world in 2017. He seems to be on the right path, having collected seven top-25 finishes in his last 13 worldwide starts.

Checking in just behind Pieters at 16-1 is Argentina's Emiliano Grillo, who was in contention through 54 holes at the Mayakoba Golf Classic in December before fading on Sunday. England's Matt Wallace, who has four European Tour victories, is also at 16-1. His fellow countryman Ian Poulter is at 18-1, along with South Africa's Branden Grace. Byeong Hun An, who is still in search of his first PGA Tour win, is at 22-1.

 FA Cup fair play: opponents save Burnley from wrong starting Shortly before the FA Cup round of 16 between Burnley and Bournemouth, a remarkable gesture was made on Tuesday evening. © imago images Was not allowed to play in the FA Cup, but almost did: Erik Pieters. Burnley had initially published a starting XI, which also included Erik Pieters. However, the left-back had already seen two yellow cards in the previous rounds and was therefore actually suspended.
