This week, the PGA Tour presents the golf betting community with the CJ Cup @ Summit!
Before I discuss my favorite tournament matchup bets for the CJ Cup @ Summit let’s take a look at the current leaders in scoring average on the PGA Tour that are in this week’s field.
Top Ten Golfers in Scoring Average
- Max Homa 69.32
- Marc Leishman 68.78
- Sungjae Im 69.01

*I should note that the scoring average data just provided is isolated to the new PGA Tour season. The first event of the new PGA Tour season was the Fortinet Championship which took place last month.
Now that we have established who the top ten golfers with regard to scoring average are on the PGA Tour (in this week’s field) let’s shift our attention to my favorite tournament matchup bets for this week’s CJ Cup @ Summit.
Marc Leishman +110 over Joaquin Niemann
Marc Leishman has simply been playing outstanding golf recently. Let me be more specific. Leishman arrives at this week’s CJ Cup @ Summit on the heels of two consecutive top four finishes on the PGA Tour, including a third place result at the Shriners Children’s Open last week.

Leishman also checks the box for me when it comes to key player statistics. In relation to this week’s current listed CJ Cup @ Summit field, in the last eight rounds played on the PGA Tour, Marc Leishman ranks fifth in GIR (greens in regulation), ninth in driving distance, first in birdie or better percentage, and tenth in strokes gained approach.
It should also be noted that Leishman finished second at the 2017 CJ Cup @ Nine Bridges.
Aaron Wise +100 over Maverick McNealy
Aaron Wise has accumulated four consecutive top 26 finishes on the PGA Tour, including an eighth place result at the Shriners Children’s Open last week.
In relation to this week’s current listed CJ Cup @ Summit field, in the last eight rounds played on the PGA Tour, Aaron Wise ranks seventh in strokes gained off the tee, fourth in bogey avoidance and fourth in strokes gained off the tee.
I also like the fact that Aaron Wise’s opponent (McNealy) in this tournament matchup bet did not play well at last week’s PGA Tour event in Las Vegas. More specifically, McNealy missed the cut at the Shriners Children’s Open.
