This week, the PGA Tour travels to Japan for the ZOZO Championship.
Before I discuss my favorite golf bet for this week’s PGA Tour event, let’s take a quick look at the golf course the field will play and the key player statistics that I think are the most vital to a player’s success at this week’s ZOZO Championship.
This event will be played at Accordia Narashino Golf Club in Japan. This track is a par 70 that measures approximately 7,079 yards. Water hazards are in play on four holes. The greens are small and undulating. Additionally, the green complexes are heavily protected by bunkers.
The key player statistics I will be focusing on this week are driving accuracy, strokes gained approach, bogey avoidance, and GIR (greens in regulation).
Now let’s shift our focus to my favorite golf bet for the ZOZO Championship.
Here is a golfer to consider placing on your card to finish in the top ten.
Mito Pereira +300
Mito Pereira fired a second round 63 at last week’s Shriners Children’s Open en route to an eventual fourth place finish.
Due to the fact that Mito Pereira played so well at the Shriners Children’s Open, I decided to take a hard look at Pereira’s statistics relative to the field.
After four rounds of competitive play at the Shriners Children’s Open, relative to the field, Pereira ranked an impressive first in strokes gained approach, gaining an impressive 9.08 strokes on the field.
In summary, I am backing Mito Pereira to top ten at odds of +300.
