This week, the LPGA Tour travels to Fayetteville, Arkansas for the 2022 NW Arkansas Championship.

Before I discuss my favorite wager for this week’s LPGA Tour 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 a golfer’s success at this week’s 2022 NW Arkansas Championship.

The NW Arkansas Championship will be played at the Pinnacle Country Club in Fayetteville, Arkansas. This track is a par 71 that measures 6,438 yards. The Pinnacle Country Club has hosted the NW Arkansas Championship since the event’s debut on the LPGA Tour schedule in 2007. It should be noted that this week’s LPGA Tour tournament will be a 54 hole event played over the course of three days.

The key player statistics that I will be focusing on this week are driving accuracy, GIR (greens in regulation), driving distance, scrambling, and putts per GIR.

Now let’s shift our focus to my favorite golf bet for this week’s LPGA Tour event.

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

Lydia Ko +300

Since the beginning of May, Lydia Ko has played 11 tournaments on the LPGA Tour. In those 11 tournaments just noted, Ko has accumulated an impressive ten top 16 finishes, including a fourth place finish at the 2022 CP Women’s Open last month.

Lydia Ko also checks the box for me when it comes to previous event/course history. Since 2013, Lydia Ko has played the NW Arkansas Championship nine times. In those nine tournaments just noted, Lydia Ko has accumulated seven top 25 finishes, including a win at the 2016 NW Arkansas Championship.

Lydia Ko currently ranks first in putts per GIR (1.73), fifth in total birdies made (293), and second in scoring average (69.42) on the LPGA Tour.

In summary, I am backing Lydia Ko to top five at this week’s NW Arkansas Championship at odds of +300.
