Tokyo Olympics Men's Golf Tournament
July 28, 2021 6:30 pm EDT
This week, the golf betting community will be presented with the Tokyo Olympics Men’s Golf Tournament.
Before I discuss my favorite golf bets for this week’s Men’s International Golf Event in Tokyo, Japan let’s take a look at the unique format of this week’s event and briefly discuss the golf course the field will play.
The men’s golf event at the Tokyo Olympic Games will not be played like your average event on the PGA Tour. How will it be different? Well, let’s dive into the details. The Tokyo Olympics men’s event will be a 72 hole individual stroke play tournament held over the course over four days (July 29th-August 1). Unlike your standard PGA Tour event, this tournament will not have a cut after two rounds. That means that all 60 golfers in this week’s field will play all four rounds.
The Tokyo Olympics Men’s Golf Tournament will be played at the Kasumigaseki Country Club (East Course) in Saitama, Japan. This track is a par 72 that measures approximately 7,465 yards. This golf course will present this week’s field with tree lined fairways and green complexes that feature bentgrass greens. It should also be noted that this track has 66 bunkers that are strategically placed throughout the golf course.
Now let’s turn our attention to my favorite golf bets for the Tokyo Olympics Men’s Golf Tournament.

Here are two golfers to consider placing on your card to finish in the top 20.
Mito Pereira (Chile) +200
The 26 year old has put together some outstanding results over the course of the last few months. Since the beginning of June, Pereira has played six tournaments (PGA and Korn Ferry Tours combined). In those six events just mentioned, Mito has accumulated four top six finishes, including two wins (2021 BMW Charity Pro-Am, 2021 Rex Hospital Open).
In relation to this week’s current listed Tokyo Olympics field, in the last 12 rounds played on the PGA Tour, Pereira ranks first in strokes gained off the tee, fourth in GIR (greens in regulation), fourth in birdie or better percentage, and third in strokes gained ball striking.
Guido Migliozzi (Italy) +140
The talented young Italian arrives at the Tokyo Olympics in rather good form. More specifically, Migliozzi has four top 13 finishes in his last six tournaments played (European and PGA Tours combined), including an impressive fourth place result at the 2021 U.S. Open.
In relation to this week’s current listed Tokyo Olympics field, in the last 12 rounds played on the PGA Tour, Guido Migliozzi ranks eighth in strokes gained tee to green, ninth in strokes gained approach, and seventh in bogey avoidance.
