Neither Westwood nor McNealy have played enough recently on the TOUR to get a true feel for their current form. But looking back to this time last year, McNealy was on a great run that saw him make 11 straight cuts between September and March.

In those 11 events, the 24-year-old McNealy had 9 Top 40 finishes, including a T5 at Pebble, a T11 at the Honda Classic and a 15 at the Farmers.

The last time we saw Westwood was at the US Open, where he carded a +7 (287), incuding a 67 on Thursday. He finished the major T13. He only entered 3 events before the 2020 season was shut down for a few month due to COVID-19. His results were mixed, including a missed cut and the Arnold Palmer Invitational and a T4 at the Honda Classic.

One of the biggest factors to the winner of this matchup is next week. Lee Westwood is in the field for the Masters, while McNealy isn’t. McNealy will be much more motived to reach the weekend, where there’s a chance Westwood will be on cruise control, looking ahead to Augusta.

Yesterday, Westwood shot a +7 77 and currently sits at T114. The current projected cut is +2. McNealy shot a +1 71, and sits at T45.

Take Maverick McNealy at -125 to beat Lee Westwood in their Vivint Houston Open Round 2 Matchup for today’s 2020 PGA TOUR Free Play.
