2021 Women’s Open: LPGA Tour Picks, Odds, Predictions 8/19/21

2021 Women's Open
August 19, 2021 1:30 am EDT

This week, the LPGA Tour travels to Angus, Scotland for the 2021 Women’s Open Championship. Before I discuss my favorite golf bets for this week’s major championship event let’s take a look at the golf course the field will play and the key player statistics that I think are the most important to success at this week’s 2021 Women’s Open.

The 2021 Women’s Open Championship will be played at Carnoustie Golf Links in Angus, Scotland. This golf course is a par 72 that measures approximately 6,850 yards. This week’s field will be presented with a coastal track that is exposed to the elements. My recommendation for golf bettors is to identify players in this week’s 2021 Women’s Open Championship field that can play quality golf in the wind. It should also be noted that this golf course has four par five holes.

Sophia Popov won the 2020 Women’s Open Championship with a four round cumulative score of seven under par.

The key player statistics that I will be focusing on this week are driving accuracy, GIR (greens in regulation), scrambling, bogey avoidance, and putting average.  

Now let’s shift our attention to my favorite golf bets for the 2021 Women’s Open Championship.

Here is a golfer to consider placing on your card to finish in the top ten.

Amy Yang +350

Amy Yang has accumulated three top ten finishes in her last four events played on the LPGA Tour, including a ninth place result at the 2021 KMPG Women’s PGA Championship in June.

Yang is currently ranked 16th in total birdies made (192), 16th in scoring average (70.26), and seventh in putting average on the LPGA Tour.

Here are two golfers to consider placing on your card to finish in the top 20.

Marina Alex +300

The 31 year old arrives at this week’s 2021 Women’s Open Championship in rather good form. Marina Alex has three top 25 finishes in her last five tournaments played on the LPGA Tour, including an impressive seventh place result at the 2021 Women’s Scottish Open last week.

It should also be noted that Marina Alex finished 14th at the 2020 Women’s Open Championship.

Matilda Castren +250

The 26 year old arrives at this week’s LPGA Tour event on the heels of four consecutive top 19 finishes (LPGA and Ladies European Tours combined), including a win at the 2021 Gant Ladies Open in July. Additionally, Castren captured her first win on the LPGA Tour at the 2021 LPGA MEDIHEAL Championship in June.

Castren is currently ranked fourth in GIR (greens in regulation-77.61%) on the LPGA Tour.
