We head to Ohio for the first ever Workday Charity Open, an event that is designed to replace the John Deere Classic that was cancelled due to Coronavirus.
This event will be played at the Muirfield Village Golf Club. Last week, we cashed a PGA ticket for the second time in three weeks, producing a winner with Bryson DeChambeau at +650 betting odds. Let’s continue to pad our bankroll as we get ready for a full schedule of sports betting.
Here are five golfers to consider throwing on this weeks PGA betting card.
Justin Rose, +2000 - Justin Rose took a week off after missing the Travelers Championship and should be able to get back in form considering he had strong showings at Colonial and Hilton Head before that. Rose is second all-time in career earnings at Muirfield Village and champed the 2010 Memorial. You can make an argument Rose should be the favorite this week and these odds don’t reflect that, so there’s value here.
Matthew Wolff, +5000 - Matthew Wolff had his chances to win the Rocket Mortgage last week, but he had a rocky showing on Sunday and had to settle for runner-up. It was easily Wolff’s best showing of the year and he’s now currently eighth in driving distance. Wolff hasn’t given us much reach lately to think he can string together strong showings, but these odds are sweet based on how he looked last week.
Viktor Hovland, +2200 - Few are playing as consistent golf as Viktor Hovland right now, as he’s missed the cut just once since the Puerto Rico Open and has produced four straight top-25 finishes. Hovland is also a respectable 35th in greens in regulation percentage, fourth in eagles (holes per) and 18th in scoring average. While he already has a win this year, it’s only a matter of time before Hovland starts finishing these strong performances and gets another one.
Brooks Koepka, +1400 - Brooks Koepka has played twice since the sport returned and we haven’t seen him since finishing seventh at the RBC Heritage. There could be some rust here, but there should also be a ton of motivation with all the attention Bryson DeChambeau has been getting over the last month. Just last year, Koepka was the talk of the tournament and considered the guy to beat. Koepka with some fire in his belly is a scary sight.
Kevin Streelman, +6600 - Kevin Streelman snapped a string of three straight missed cuts with a runner-up finish at the Travelers Championship. Streelman also had a runner-up finish at Pebble Beach, so he’s either not playing during the weekend or in running for a victory, little in-between. Streelman finished fourth at the Memorial last year and has three top-10 finishes at Muirfield Village overall. In terms of a dark horse this week, it doesn’t get much better than Streelman and these odds.
