Now that we have determined who the top five golfers with regard to scoring average are on the LPGA Tour (in this week’s field) let’s shift our attention to my favorite tournament matchup bets for this week’s 2022 Tournament Of Champions.

Jessica Korda -110 over Gaby Lopez

Jessica Korda arrives at this week’s 2022 Tournament Of Champions in rather good form. Korda has accumulated two top 11 finishes in her last three events played on the LPGA Tour, including a sixth place result at the 2021 Cognizant Founders Cup in October.

Korda also checks the box for me when it comes to key player statistics. Korda is currently ranked ninth in GIR (greens in regulation-76.01%), tenth in driving distance (273.86 yards), and eighth in scoring average (69.79) on the LPGA Tour.

It should also be noted that Jessica Korda won the 2021 Tournament Of Champions.

Brooke Henderson -115 over Patty Tavatanakit

Brooke Henderson has accumulated three top 13 finishes in her last four tournaments played on the LPGA Tour, including a fifth place result at the 2021 Pelican Women’s Championship in November.

Brooke Henderson is currently ranked ninth in driving distance (274.28 yards), fourth in GIR (greens in regulation-77.56%), and ninth in scoring average (69.80) on the LPGA Tour.

Henderson also checks the box for me when it comes to previous event history. Brooke Henderson has played this week’s LPGA Tour event three times since 2019. In those three tournaments just mentioned, Henderson has accumulated three top nine finishes, including a fourth place result at the 2020 Tournament Of Champions.
