2023 Hero World Challenge
2023-11-30 08:20:00 EDT
This week, the PGA Tour presents golf bettors with the 2023 Hero World Challenge.
Before I dive into my favorite prop bets for this 2023 Hero World Challenge let’s take a quick look at the golf course the field will play and the key player statistics that I feel are the most vital to a golfer’s success this week.
The 2023 Hero World Challenge will be played at the Albany Golf Club in the Bahamas. The golf course is a par 72 that measures approximately 7,449 yards. The Albany Golf Club will present this week’s field with a resort syle golf course that offers rather large generous fairways off the tee. The golf course’s main defense is wind. Having stated that, I highly recommend that all golf bettors pay close attention to the weather forecast prior to making any wagers on this week’s PGA Tour event.
*The Hero World Challenge has been played at the Albany Golf Club since 2015.
The key player statistics that I will be focusing on this week are GIR (greens in regulation), strokes gained ball striking, strokes gained putting, and birdie or better percentage.
Now let’s shift our attention to my favorite prop bets for the 2023 Hero World Challenge.
Here is a golfer to consider placing on your card to finish in the top five.
Max Homa +150
The talented young American has accumulated two consecutive top seven finishes (DP World and PGA Tours combined), including a win at the 2023 Nedbank Challenge three weeks ago.
In relation to this week’s current listed 2023 Hero World Challenge field, in the last 24 rounds played on the PGA Tour, Max Homa ranks second in birdie or better percentage, fourth in bogey avoidance, and third in strokes gained off the tee.
In summary, I am backing Max Homa to top five at odds of +150.
Here is a golfer to consider placing on your card to finish in the top ten.
Sepp Straka +150
Sepp Straka has accumulated two consecutive top 22 finishes on the DP World Tour, including a tenth place result at the 2023 BMW Championship in September.
Additionally, Sepp Straka finished tenth at the 2023 Hero World Challenge. In my opinion, Sepp Straka’s skills fit this week’s golf course in the Bahamas quite well. I fully expect Straka to play well this weekend.
