This Thursday morning, the first round of the 2022 Barracuda Championship will begin.
Before I discuss my favorite tournament matchup bets for the 2022 Barracuda Championship let’s take a look at the current leaders in scoring average on the PGA Tour that are in this week’s field.
Top Five Golfers in Scoring Average
- Mark Hubbard 70.15
- Alex Noren 70.38
- Matthias Schwab 70.39
- Nick Hardy 70.67
- John Huh 70.79
Now that we have established who the top five 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 2022 Barracuda Championship.
Mark Hubbard -120 over Doug Ghim
Mark Hubbard arrives at this week’s 2022 Barracuda Championship in rather good form. More specifically, Hubbard has accumulated two consecutive top 13 finishes on the PGA Tour, including a third place result at last week’s 2022 Barbasol Championship.
In relation to this week’s current listed 2022 Barracuda Championship field, in the last four weeks of competitive golf played on the PGA Tour, Mark Hubbard ranks tenth in GIR (greens in regulation-74.50%) and seventh in scrambling (69.70%).
Cam Davis -110 over Alex Noren
Cam Davis has accumulated two top eight finishes in his last four tournaments played on the PGA Tour, including an eighth place result at the 2022 John Deere Classic two weeks ago.
Due to the fact that Cam Davis performed so well at the 2022 John Deere Classic, I decided to take a hard look at Davis’s player statistics relative to the field.
After four rounds of competitive play at the 2022 John Deere Classic, in relation to the field, Cam Davis ranked fifth in driving distance (330.1 yards) and second in GIR (86.1%).
