2023 Sentry Tournament Of Champions
January 5, 2023 2:30 pm EDT

This week, professional golf returns to the sports schedule with the 2023 Sentry Tournament Of Champions.

Before I discuss my favorite tournament matchup bet for the opening PGA Tour event of 2023 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

  1. Tony Finau 67.22
  2. Patrick Cantlay 68.04
  3. Jon Rahm 68.03
  4. Xander Schauffele 68.35
  5. Tom Kim 68.54

*This week’s 2023 Sentry Tournament Of Champions will present golf bettors with a small 39 man field. Keep that in mind as you process which players to wager on this week.

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 bet for this week’s Sentry Tournament Of Champions.

Jon Rahm -125 over Matt Fitzpatrick

Since the beginning of August, Jon Rahm has played seven tournaments (PGA and DP World Tours combined). In those seven events just noted, Rahm has accumulated six top-eight finishes, including two wins (2022 Open de Espana, 2022 DP World Tour Championship).

In relation to this week’s current listed Sentry Tournament Of Champions field, in the last 12 rounds played on the PGA Tour, Jon Rahm ranks third in birdie or better percentage, third in strokes gained around the green, and second in strokes gained on par fives.

It should also be noted that Rahm has played well at this week’s PGA Tour event in the past. Rahm finished second at the 2022 Sentry Tournament Of Champions.
