This week, the PGA Tour travels to California for the 2023 American Express.
Before I discuss my favorite golf bet for this week’s PGA Tour event let’s take a quick look at the unique format of the 2023 American Express tournament.
This week’s 2023 American Express is a pro-am tournament that will take place on three different golf courses over the course of a four day period. The golf courses the field will play this week are La Quinta Country Club, PGA West Tournament Course, and the PGA West TPC Stadium Course.
The entire field will play all three courses over the course of the first three days of competition. The final round will occur on the PGA West TPC Stadium Course.
Now let's shift our focus to my favorite golf bet for this week's 2023 American Express.
Cam Davis -250
The 27 year old Australian has accumulated two top 13 finishes in his last four tournaments played, including a seventh place result at the Australian Open in November.
Davis also checks the box for me when it comes to previous event/course history. Since 2019, Cam Davis has played this week's PGA Tour event three times. In those three tournaments just noted, Davis has accumulated three top 29 finishes, including an impressive third place result at the 2021 American Express.
In relation to this week’s current listed American Express field, in the last 12 rounds played on the PGA Tour, Cam Davis ranks third in strokes gained on par fives and tenth in birdies or better percentage.
In summary, I am backing Cam Davis to top 20 at odds of -250.
