I can’t believe I am actually sitting here writing golf betting tips.
What a time to be alive.
It’s been a long time. The last time I was here was tipping the Players Championship. However that event was canceled after the first round due to COVID-19 and everything was refunded.
I enjoyed the mini tournament with Tom Brady and Peyton Manning. Actually made quite a bit of bank on that. I didn’t feel it was worth tipping though and it won’t be part of my record or anything. It was nice just to get some golf again.
The Charles Schwab Challenge is up this week with Rory McIlroy the favourite for the event. It will be an interesting event and seeing who is rusty and so on. Speaking of I expect I will be bloody rusty as well. So just a heads up about that!
Last years event was won by Kevin Na who win by 4 strokes over Tony Finau.
Charles Schwab Challenge 2020 Betting Tips:
Just to let you know my mindset – for this one I am not going to even consider incoming form honestly. I’m going to rely on course form and also the metrics.
E/W factors in top 6 for this tournament too.
Jon Rahm: 12/1. 1/4u to win & E/W. Rahm has never won at this tournament although he finished 5th in 2018 and 2nd in 2017. He stands out in the metrics such as GIR, Par Breakers, Strokes Gained Putting. He also played well before the break if you wish to factor that in. Been awhile since Rahm won one to the point it can be hard to back him but I do like him here.
Webb Simpson: 22/1. 1/4u to win & E/W. Absolutely love Webb here and if it wasn’t for the break I’d be betting more than a 1/4. Webb finished 3rd here in 2016 and 5th in 2017. On the average of all the metrics I run he is right at the top. This course favours a ball striker and I really like Webb here.
Matt Kuchar: 50/1. 1/4u to win & E/W. Kuchar has had mixed results here over the years however some solid performances. Suits this course well and his fairway accuracy should help on this course. He loves this course as well. So that will make him more enthusiastic and passionate for this tournament.
Harris English: 66/1. 1/8u to win & E/W. Some very solid performances here over the years. Contends in the metrics and his GIR this season if it is still on point will be a big factor here.
Ryan Palmer: 80/1. 1/8u to win & E/W. Palmer has had some excellent performances here over the years. Likes this course and the Sony Open is a similar course where he played well.
If you want the ultimate long shot bet – Jim Furyk at 160/1. He was playing horrible before the break but he stands out in the metrics enough. Not enough for me to advise hm but I’d float 1/16th a unit or something on him just for the sheer hell of it. The 400/1 Josh Teater is another.
Good to be back.
